The Hilton Pensacola Beach has a lot to offer.
It’s right on the Gulf of Mexico, on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, in the heart of all the action.
The restaurant is awesome. The pool is amazing. The views go on for days.
One extra amenity of staying here with us is the potential for sighting the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, also known as the Blue Angels.
Each year in July, the Blues put on an amazing show in their hometown, and thousands of spectators come out to watch.
If you stay with us the weekend after the Fourth of July, you’re in for a treat – because you get to experience the Pensacola Beach Air Show from the comfort of your private balcony.
Watch in amazement as the jets zoom back and forth in formation above the clear blue waters, joined by special guest pilots in incredible aircraft guaranteed to take your breath away.
It’s exhilarating … and it’s loud. So if you have young kids with you, you might consider headphones to block the noise.
If you’re not here for the summer show, you can also catch the Blues during their homecoming performance each November. That one takes place at Naval Air Station Pensacola, where the squadron makes its home.
The Blue Angels also practice here throughout the year, so you can often see them flying over our beaches and bays, even when it’s not performance time.
Area dolphin cruises and boat tours even have special excursions during practice hours, which are generally weekday mornings.

We – and the Blues – look forward to welcoming you to our Pensacola Beach hotel!
