It is no secret that Perdido Key is among the most beautiful beach spots that the United States has to offer making it a premier tourist destination. Perdido Key’s name — bestowed by 17th century Spanish explorers — translates to “Lost Island.” With 16 miles of unspoiled shoreline, Perdido Key is the perfect place to “get lost.”

If you’re looking to “get lost” within the laid-back coastal lifestyle of Perdido Key, here are three of Perdido Key locals’ favorite spots that you must visit during your stay at Eden:
