Beautiful beaches, sugar sand! Lots of outdoor stuff to do as well as yummy food to eat! The locals are friendly and it feels like a tropical island with the blue green water.....go see it for yourself! Seagrove beach is a great less pricey option than Seaside or Watercolor and just a bike ride from those places.

The soft white sand here is gorgeous and rivals any beach. It is not so close to Destin Fl to have as much traffic. We love it here.

One of the VERY best beaches in the world, certainty this part of the 100 mile stretch is the best in the USA.

The Santa Rosa Beach area is a stretch of peacefulness outside the hubbub of the main tourist drag. With quaint shops tucked here and there in quiet nooks, bike paths for riding, and the beautiful WaterColor Inn and Resort, it's a great place for a couple's getaway.

We love the sugary white sand, the sunsets with pink and orange skies over pale blue water. Earlier in the afternoons, the water has that gorgeous aqua. There are 20 miles of bike paths along 30-A, along with countless wonderful eateries and shops of all kinds!! From Rosemary Beach down to Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton -- what's not to love here?@

Beautiful and uncrowded, this beach could be called the jewel of the Florida Coast. Close to shopping and fine restaurants, this is a quaint nice beach community. A must see and stay.

This is a very pretty beach but it doesn't quite compare with the beach at Grayton and there are lots more people here. All the same, it has nice white soft sand and there are numerous birds and pelicans in the area. Definitely worth a stop.....then go to Grayton!

Not sure if it won again this year on Conde Nast, but IMHO this is the best beach! I am fortunate to live within a six hour drive. The truth is you have to go to the Carribean to find a better beach than Santa Rosa Beach. The local area is appealing and has bike paths running along 30A so... More
