Popular travel website TripAdvisor has once again named Pensacola Beach to its list of the top ten beaches in the United States.

TripAdvisor’s annual Travelers Choice awards rank the top beaches, hotels, and other destinations as chosen by the site’s millions of users. This year’s winning beaches were announced Wednesday. Pensacola Beach was named #7 on this year’s list; in 2015, the beach was ranked #5.

“Pensacola Beach is an ideal seaside playground for travelers of all ages and is home to one of the longest piers in the Gulf of Mexico,” said TripAdvisor in a release. “Children will get a kick out of splashing in the shallow surf, while the young at heart are invited to kayak along the shore for a chance to see dolphins skimming the surface.”

Travelers’ Choice award-winning beaches were determined based on the quantity and quality of traveler reviews and ratings for beaches on TripAdvisor gathered over a 12-month period, the company said.
