Similar to beaches along the Florida Panhandle, Santa Rosa Beach is pristine with baby powder soft sand. While the water was too cold to take a plunge, it was very clean and inviting.

I camped out at Topsail Preserve State Park for a few nights. I can't say enough good things about this place. The camping facilities were clean, quiet, safe and peaceful. The beach was stunningly beautiful with crystal clear cool water and white sand. I can't wait to go back for spring break

Santa Rosa Beach is by far my favorite beach for a family outing. There are multiple public accesses with parking restrooms and rinse off stations which make it great when you're bringing kids along.

These North Florida beaches are pristine. The water was beautiful and clear. We could walk to the beach from our state park cabin. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

One of the best beaches around. My favorite time is October. Not to crowded and the water is still warm. Great places to eat no chain restaurants around. The waster color is perfect. November not to bad either.

Nice beach to walk the local shops, food trucks and enjoy the beach atmosphere! There are lots of neat local restaurants that are a real treat. I personally liked Raw and Juicy.
