Pensacola Lighthouse and Museum


In nearby Pensacola, you’ll journey up 177 steps to the landmark Pensacola Lighthouse to get one of the most incredible views anywhere along the coast. Established in 1859, it’s nestled on the NAS Pensacola, and it’s just a short drive from your Navarre Beach guest room. At the very top, you’ll be able to see where Pensacola Bay merges with the Gulf of Mexico. Look for historic forts, the Navy Yard, and take in the beauty of the Pensacola skyline.

There’s also the well-maintained Keepers’ Quarters, which was built in 1869. It’s where the Richard C. Callaway Museum is housed, featuring a number of artifacts and exhibits on the lighthouse and local history. Please note that sunset toasts are no longer available for security concerns, but the popular Ghost Hunt is currently open for reservations!

Light Up Your Vacation

Admission is just $6 for adults and $4 for children, seniors and military. Open daily from 10 – 5:30, the lighthouse and adjacent museum are the perfect introduction to the Gulf area. Whether it’s your first time in Navarre Beach or you’re a seasonal regular, you’ll find something new, from a view to a museum piece, every time you visit.

Children must be 44 inches tall, and no backless sandals are allowed at the lighthouse. (You can climb barefoot, but it’s better to come with sturdy shoes!) Take a trip to one of the most historic sites in the area for a family outing, romantic date, or solo adventure.
