The Pensacola Lighthouse can be seen 27 miles out at sea

Previous Image Gallery Home Next Image
Located near the entrance to Pensacola Bay and 190 feet above sea level, stands the black and white tower of the Pensacola Lighthouse. The light flashes white every minute and can be seen 27 miles out at sea. The lighthouse is on located on the Pensacola Naval Air Station; and in 1914 when the federal government established Pensacola as it's first training base for naval aviators, some thought the lighthouse might be too tall and therefore be a hazard. That turned out not to be the case; in fact, pilots now use it as a checkpoint. The lighthouse itself currently remains operational.
