Perdido Key, Florida is a small city located on the very northwest edge of Florida between Pensacola and Orange Beach, Alabama. Perdido Key is the west-most beach in the state of Florida and also one of the most beautiful beaches on the Gulf Coast. The word “perdido” means lost in Spanish and you can get that kind of feel on this vacation, feeling relaxed in a beach city that moves at a slower pace.
