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

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.

This is the most beautiful beach anywhere. Gorgeous. This was pure heaven for me. This would be great for families. I could spend weeks here. No where else compares.

When you come to Pensacola and want a nice beach that's not too crowded, Santa Rosa provides that. It's not always the case, but in large part, it's beautiful, relaxing, and hard to go wrong

Great place to visit, hang out, vacation. Plenty to do, whether you are looking for tourist activities, bars, restaurants, or solitude on a beautiful beach. The whole family loves this place.

This is one of the prettier areas down in the Pensacola area. It has great views, great people and a down-home feel.

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.
