 Additional Information

entrance fee into Ft. Pickens. For a good look at the small summertime lines watch "Jaws 2" it was filmed there. In one sceen you can see the lines rollin through. Much better waves in the Winter!Look for the boat docks on the right and surfers' cars parked along the road. Walk south along the pass to the east jetty, and paddle out. A 15-minute walk from your car gets you there, and local knowledge gets you surfing. The wave is a shape-shifting peak that bounces off the left side of the east jetty.

Doesn't break anymore - This place used to fire years ago, pre-2000. Whenever the winds would blow out of the east really hard for days, all of Pensacola beach would be big and blown out but The Point would be offshore and peeling because the way it wraps around so that east and northeast winds are offshore. Caught some really good swells here.

yall are both dumb - There is a jetty. It is on the opposite side of the point. I have lived on Pensacola Beach for close to ten years and lived in the area for all my life and I have only seen pictures of it breaking. You will be lucky to make it out there for a swell, especially since Ivan messed up the roads. You can still get out there and camp but you have to take bikes which is kind of a pain but it's better than walking.

DUDE!?.............. - For one you can only get there by boat now or walk and camp there due to hurricane Ivan tking the road out. Also like the guy below me said there is no jetty and there never has been. Your probably dreaming or thinking of somewhere else. .... Also that bodyboarder. no one cares about what waves you like to surf.
