One of the best beaches that I have been to. The water is clear and wildlife is abundant. We always have a great time in this area. Lots of things to do and the beaches are not super crowded. Good restaurants, coffee shops, retail shops all within a few minutes.

Some may like a place like Destin or Myrtle Beach, but I don't. They are too crowded and I feel like I need a vacation after I leave. Santa Rosa Beach and all of the small beach towns along 30A are what I think of when I imagine a relaxing beach vacation. Lot's of great restaurants and beach shops, but... More

This is definitely the beach to come to if you want to spend a relaxing day in the sand and surf! The sand is soft, white, clean, and cool. Don't worry about seeing a bunch of trash, rocks, or shells on the shoreline, which has plenty of space for everyone. The water is just as nice and is also some... More

After vacationing for many years in Destin while we were younger, my family decided to start vacationing in the Santa Rosa area - and we were not disappointed. The beaches are nice and clean, and the chairs aren't stacked 4 rows back - everyone gets their own beach view! The community is fun and vacationing in that area is so... More

The white sand with clear waters makes for the most beautiful, enjoyable vacation ever! All up and down 30a are accommodating rental services for bikes, kayaks, and paddleboards! Its the best vacation spot for families with children of all ages! It can be very pricy for the beach access homes for a week long vacation during the summer!

Awesome place! So silent in the mornings , perfect for morning jogging! We rented a house not far away so it is easy to reach! Mostly yellow flags.

Nice relaxed family beach. Make sure that you get chance and him relevant. The water is typically absolutely clear and gorgeous. Occasionally they are jellyfish, just watch the warning flags.

Our family spent time on the beach each day of our trip to the Gulf last year. It was beautiful and tranquil every day but one when the wind blew and made it difficult to put our tent up. Overall, it was a very relaxing week at Santa Rosa Beach. I'm looking forward to a return trip when our new... More

We couldn't get over how quiet this emerald coast beach was mid-July. Love 30A, and we will be back for sure!! It's nice to get away from the hustle bustle of Destin and Seaside- but they're both SUPER close if you want to get out in it.
