I fell in love

Need I say more than my title? I fell in love with the area, the beautiful soft white sand, the relaxing atmosphere and the convenience of the location!

Yes it is off season and very cold and windy this week but the beach was beautiful and with out the congestion you would find on the beaches of Destin, Panama City, and other "tourist" town beaches. Wide long and beautiful white sand. I must be absolutely beautiful in the warmer months. BObK

This is a good beach to relax , walk , or just lay in the sun . The reason is this beach is not in the hustle and bustle of Panama City or Destin, so you can relax or go to other cities and get in the mix .

Similar to beaches along the Florida Panhandle, Santa Rosa Beach is pristine with baby powder soft sand. While the water was too cold to take a plunge, it was very clean and inviting.

I camped out at Topsail Preserve State Park for a few nights. I can't say enough good things about this place. The camping facilities were clean, quiet, safe and peaceful. The beach was stunningly beautiful with crystal clear cool water and white sand. I can't wait to go back for spring break

Santa Rosa Beach is by far my favorite beach for a family outing. There are multiple public accesses with parking restrooms and rinse off stations which make it great when you're bringing kids along.
