gulf beaches - pensacola detin walton navarre panama city
Thanks for the tip saras :) It's good to know that it's officially (or unofficially? doesn't matter) legal, though as fit said, best to not be in a situation where it has to be an issue.
Bigbuzz, there are plenty of places to park, both in lots and on the gravely side of the road, east past the Portofino resorts (they're an ugly eyesore, but a useful landmark nonetheless) and along the Gulf Island National Seashore that are fairly remote, though it depends on the weather and the day as to how many people are out there, sometimes even those parts of the beach fill up for those trying to get away from the crowds. There's also Navarre beach, and there might be some beach stretches between that and Fort Walton Beach that's even more remote, I haven't explored that area yet.
I tend to thong on that stretch of beach east of Portofino before the National Seashore, usually on Sundays if the weather is good enough (it's becoming my "church" haha). Was there just yesterday. Although now that saras mentioned it, I think I might try some other spots as well. Keep thonging guys! :)
