“This beach is vast and very beautiful”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We visited Navarre Beach last March during a trip to Florida for my brothers funeral. He and his wife would go here often so we wanted to experience why they loved it so much. The sand is white and soft and the landscape is breathtaking. We walked the beach and walked on the pier, watched some fishermen, and waited for the sunset. Everyone on the pier was friendly. It was one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever witnessed. This area of the shore was just amazing and there were a few restaurants and gift shops. So glad we went, as it's a pretty amazing beach and it's very clean. I would definitely like to go back and spend some time here. If I remember correctly the price to get onto the pier was only a dollar.

“Gorgeous, white sand beaches for miles”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

My husband and I stayed in Pensacola Beach for a long weekend. We drive the stretch of road from Pensacola Beach to Navarre Beach and stopped along the way to marvel at the views and walk the beach. This is a gorgeous, well kept beach where you can find privacy or groups of people. We traveled here in mid-October, which is the off season, and at times, we felt like we had the beach to ourselves. The beach is soft, white sand and beautiful... a must visit.

“Gulf Islands”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We had a wonderful time there, stayed at the Days inn, but the beach was very disapointed..there were jelly fish washed up all over the shores,so we were not alound to go into the water w/ red flags flying. It costs to go out on the pier which the people fishing dont speak english and were a bit overwhelming on the pier. The food at Crabs and service was awesome, had drinks specials nightly and walked down to hear the band play too on the beach. Overall had a great peaceful time just wish the beach was cleaner.

“The stretch from Pensacola Beach to Navarre Beach is a runners, bike riders dream come true!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

You can't ask for a more scenic stretch of miles to walk, run or ride your bike on. The trail in several places comes within feet of the Gulf of Mexico. Extremely scenic, UNTOUCHED, and no houses, condos or hotels for about 10 miles.

Definitely a must see when you are in the area.
