best beaches in florida

I've seen a lot of beaches, and Santa Rosa has some of the best-- it's called the Emerald Coast for a reason!

PURPLE FLAG BEWARE! This is good family beach, but when we visited the purple flag was flying which means, dangerous sea creatures. The jellyfish were stinging and the crabs were pitching so it's a great beach if you stay on the sand, but beware of the water.

We loved loved loved this beach. This was our first visit to this beach definitely won't be our last. Beautiful white sand and warm water was perfect. We had a great time and the quieter atmosphere was perfect for our family vacation. We didn't have to worry about teenagers being alone at the beach, etc. This is truly a hidden... More

This is a great family friendly beach. The sand is a beautiful white that feels almost fluffy. The water is clear and warm. The waves are not too big so you don't have to work too hard to be able to stand up when they crash around you. There are loads of little restaurants nearby and cute shops. There is... More

If you have been here you know what you are getting. These are the only beaches to visit in florida. Lower traffic, no jetski's or spring breakers. Clean and beautiful.

Beautiful handmade glass pictures, you have to stop in to admire her work. It is difficult to describe you have to see if for yourself. She used various colors of glass to create interesting and spectacular pictures. I purchased a small one as a souvenir. She has a website maryhongstudio.com - if you look at the website you can see... More

Beautiful beach, waves made for surfing of sun bathing, silky smooth sand, and everything you could possibly imagine!!! You can go for miles without seeing anyone at the beach every time of the year! I highly recommend this beach for all beach-goers especially for families including ones with young children.
