Very clean beaches, pure white sand, and blue water as clear as anything. Beautiful sunsets and great beach to just sit and admire the view.

The beaches here are as white as snow and the ocean water is a clear blue green. There are many places to pull off and park and several spots with restroom facilities and picnic spots. Well worth the time to visit!

Santa Rosa is by far one of the best kept secrets in Florida. A good selection of hotels, restaurants (Flounders & Peg Legged Pete's are a must)! The Blue Angels Museum at the Pensacola Navel base is just minutes away as well as other sites...More

I took my daughters (4 and 6) on a week long trip here. The beaches were clean and beautiful and the water was perfect for two littles that can't swim. I'm looking forward to going back!

The sand looks like sugar. The beaches go for miles with pull offs to see the beauty. There is a campground and a 1830's brick fort that is an adventure for kid and adult alike.

Even though this strip is very narrow and is over-washed during some hurricanes the shoreline hasn't changed much in recent history. If you look carefully you can even find a military canyon (battery with rails) concealed in some of the higher dunes. The lagoon side...More

This is one of the most picturesque beaches I have been to in my life! White sand and clear blue water. We came here on the off season, so we had the whole beach to ourselves as far as the eye could see. There are...More

The Emerald Coast is just gorgeous. Love the current 70's weather for beach combing, no crowds and lack of screaming children. The water is so clear and blue you can watch the sand move, stingrays swim gracefully by and find lots of shells.

Any beach in the Panhandle can rightfully be claimed as beautiful. This particular one is lovely, but it's also peaceful and (at times) quiet. When we can slip away and are in the area, we love to drive down to the beach and just take...More

There are plenty of hotels at each end of the Island. There are a few at Navarre Beach, including one new one, Springhill Suites. There are quite a few hotel options on the other end of the Island at Pensacola Beach.
