Great white sand. Beautiful spot to see the sunset. We rented chairs and an umbrella to enjoy and relax for a Saturday afternoon.

The sunsets here are amazing. The white sugar sand creaking under your feet as you walk down a strip of pristine beach. Great nightlife and places to eat or drink. Cool little shops offer local fare and trinkets. Bring money!

We had a wonderful and relaxing visit to Santa Rosa Beach. It was our first time vacation at Santa Rosa. Inn at gulf place was the perfect location. We were very pleased with all aspects of our unit...except, we knew there was no dishwasher, but the kitchen had very little counter space and was ill-equipped. Full refrigerator and stove furnished... More

We have been coming to the Hwy. 30-A area in October for the past 20 years. With the exception of Seaside, which is a cluttered mess, this long stretch is dotted with little communities and pristine beaches, parks and quaint restaurants. This year, however, we were shocked to see new construction on every corner, lots of high-end houses and condos.... More

The best beach ever! Clean, never crowded, awesome. Low density housing make this area the most desirable on 30a, let's hope it stays that way!
