Very nice area

This is my favorite area of the panhandle. The beaches are lovely, the atmosphere is mostly peaceful, but gets busier on the weekends.

A beautiful drive
Feb 2021
Drove through Gulf Island National Seashore along Santa Rosa island. It was a pleasurable drive with unbelievable scenery. The thought of mother natures fury on this island and how it stands up is remarkable. A great way to spend a cool afternoon.

Beautiful beaches
Jun 2020 • Friends
There are several beaches on the island. Most are on the Gulf side but there are a few on Santa Rosa Sound. Can get crowded on weekends but we visit during the week and avoid a lot of crowds. Some beaches have bathrooms and lifeguards but most are primitive. They are all gorgeous.

SRI Amazing

Wow, what a stretch of water, dunes, and beach. We went there for the biking as it is a beautiful ride from Pensacola Beach to Navarre, about 15 miles one way depending where you start. Most of the ride is on the road but the speed limit is only 35mph and there was not much traffic when we were there, also there is a decent bike lane. Just amazing scenery with the dunes, surf, and ocean. Lots of other things to do if you like beachcombing, swimming, or just relaxing on the beach. Most of the shopping and restaurants on on the Pescacola Beach end of the island.

Great beach, fantastic shells.

This is a great stretch of beach and great for shelling! I found a huge gallon zip lock bag of fantastic shells including several smaller conchs and olives. The sand dollars are HUGE but sadly all I found were broken. It’s not crowded at all!

Beautiful beach, not that busy.

This is a great beach to go to, not that busy, perfect white sand and clear waters. Great long stretch of beachfront. If you need showers, picnic area, restrooms etc., go a few more miles down to Opal beach. This stretch of the National Seashore is a great getaway from the busier beaches by the condos.

great beaches
Jun 2019 • Friends
On my last trip my brother in law and I went to the Naval air museum. It was a great. On the way home we took the scenic rout which too us to Santa Rosa Island. There were birds nesting along both sides of the road. The DNR had them roped off so as not to disturb them. They do the same thing when the turtles are nesting also. The beaches are kept very nice and the white sand feels great on the feet. Nice place to visit.

A great place to get away
Mar 2019 • Friends
The drive between Navarre Beach and Pensacola Beach is a wonderful and restful cruise along the coast. Pull over into the access points and you have miles of white sand and green water with hardly any people. If people are what you want, go to Pensacola Beach or Navarre Beach. For history.... Fort Pickens is your place. Santa Rosa Island is a great place to get away
