The white sand with clear waters makes for the most beautiful, enjoyable vacation ever! All up and down 30a are accommodating rental services for bikes, kayaks, and paddleboards! Its the best vacation spot for families with children of all ages! It can be very pricy for the beach access homes for a week long vacation during the summer!

Awesome place! So silent in the mornings , perfect for morning jogging! We rented a house not far away so it is easy to reach! Mostly yellow flags.

Nice relaxed family beach. Make sure that you get chance and him relevant. The water is typically absolutely clear and gorgeous. Occasionally they are jellyfish, just watch the warning flags.

Our family spent time on the beach each day of our trip to the Gulf last year. It was beautiful and tranquil every day but one when the wind blew and made it difficult to put our tent up. Overall, it was a very relaxing week at Santa Rosa Beach. I'm looking forward to a return trip when our new... More

We couldn't get over how quiet this emerald coast beach was mid-July. Love 30A, and we will be back for sure!! It's nice to get away from the hustle bustle of Destin and Seaside- but they're both SUPER close if you want to get out in it.

Santa Rosa is a treasure! We love it, and our family visits here, every year. The beaches are gorgeous. with beautiful white sand, and there is hiking, fishing, swimming, shopping, dining, etc. if you want to step away from the beach.

We stayed about a block form Santa Rosa Beach for July 4 holiday. We could walk to the beach. We had a wagon for our chairs and tent and cooler. There are companies there that will rent the chairs and umbrellas, but we brought our own. Take your own food and drinks- no vendors right on the beach.

This beach area, which includes Sea Side and Watercolor, is our families favorite. No high rises, picturesque architecture, comfortable laid back atmosphere is why we come year after year. Excellent restaurants. Our teenagers come and go to beach, pools or food trucks on bicycles. Golf carts are also a easy way to get around, making it optional to even get... More
