“Our 2 Day Visit”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Santa Rosa Island is a beautiful place to visit. Fun in the sun on sandy white beaches, with plenty of restaurants within walking distance of anywhere.

“Perfect area for first snorkeling adventure”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We visited two different areas of the island. We first went around to the beaches nearer the Fort. The beaches there are beautiful but it was right before the big storm was about to enter the gulf and the water was very rough. We then went to the beaches nearer the bay side, where the covered pavilions are. The water on that side was more protected and much calmer. We had a lot of fun snorkeling and enjoying the clear water. It was a great area to spend family time.

White sands and tourquoise waters what more could you ask for? It is spectacular! Very quiet. Perfect if you don't like big crowds.
