We have a vacation home in Watercolor in Santa Rosa Brach. It's just an awesome place! There are wonderful restaurants, lots of family activities, plenty of quaint shops and whatever amenity you can think of. And, the beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world!

Lovely beach, no high rises, quiet roads, very little commercial. The ocean is warm and even on "rough" days it is safe to swim. Reminds a bit of parts of the Jersey shore and Cape Cod. Quite a few condo complexes but they aren't oversized. Easy to get out to the main highway to get to Publix, Walmart, etc.

a must see.

I am writing a review for Santa Rosa island beach in the fort Walton area. This beach has beautiful white sand. The coast is shallow to enjoy the waves. There are restrooms as opposed to the Miramar beach area. There are no lifeguards.
Other than a few green sea weeds the water is clear. We did see some squid like creatures hiding in the sand.
Pack a picnic since there are no restaurants very close.

Most of the Santa Rosa Beach area is made up of houses rather than the high rise condos prevalent in Destin or Panama City. This keeps the density lower and the beaches less crowded. The traffic is fairly light, even during the 4th of July week. All the amenities are still close by ... restaurants, grocery, quaint shops, etc. Really nice area.

just spent a week here with the family and had a wonderful time. Water was crystal clear and some days it was so calm it was like a pool.
