Stretching across the western most reaches of Florida's panhandle, a thin band of sand extends along the coastline. These barrier islands, just a short distance from the mainland, create a natural breakwater for Pensacola Bay. With a convenient break between the islands, easy access from the bay to the Gulf of Mexico insures the prosperity of the city of Pensacola. This broad inlet was protected by shore battery at Fort Pickens. Built in 1829, the fort is now a historic site on Gulf Islands National Seashore.
