“Gorgeous BEACH!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

We love the sugary white sand, the sunsets with pink and orange skies over pale blue water. Earlier in the afternoons, the water has that gorgeous aqua. There are 20 miles of bike paths along 30-A, along with countless wonderful eateries and shops of all kinds!! From Rosemary Beach down to Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton -- what's not to love here?@

“Santa Rosa Beach”

Beautiful and uncrowded, this beach could be called the jewel of the Florida Coast. Close to shopping and fine restaurants, this is a quaint nice beach community. A must see and stay.

“Love the White Sandy Beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

This is a very pretty beach but it doesn't quite compare with the beach at Grayton and there are lots more people here. All the same, it has nice white soft sand and there are numerous birds and pelicans in the area. Definitely worth a stop.....then go to Grayton!

“Best beach in North America”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

Not sure if it won again this year on Conde Nast, but IMHO this is the best beach! I am fortunate to live within a six hour drive. The truth is you have to go to the Carribean to find a better beach than Santa Rosa Beach. The local area is appealing and has bike paths running along 30A so you almost never have to drive a car even to go to the grocery store. Devoid of unattractive strip malls and tacky Tshirt shops, the local merchants offer unique if not somewhat pricey goods for sale. There is no shortage of great places to stay, whether you want a whole house with a pool, or a campground site, or a condo right on the beach. There's something for everyone
