We will drive to Navarre at least a couple of times during our stay. The drive is absolutely breathtaking with white sand and blue waters. We often take our chairs and books and enjoy the good life on quiet, often deserted beaches.

This is a tourist/beach place that has the businesses that support. If you want a good meal, go for a walk on the beach, or go into the water, this is a great place.

Long walks along the shores and fine sand between my toes. This is the sort of place that helps you forget the rest of the world for a while. Not busy or crowded.

Pick a day. Any day. The water will be gorgeous and the sand will be white. The breeze coming off the water will be just enough to cool you down in the warm sunshine. If it gets too hot, dip in the water. If it...More

Pensacola beach is my favorite beach of all. There is no comparison to Myrtle or Daytona, they are nasty. The beautiful white sands of Pensacola, gorgeous water, and fresh smell of salt water. No other beach needed.

Both islets of the Gulf Islands Park are just gorgeous. The dunes are lovely and the length of the beach ensure less crowds. Truly worth the cost for a lovely beach experience. *Military can get a free annual pass: Ask the ranger at the gate.

One of my favorite places in the world! I wish that I never had to leave. Everything I need is right there. Bars, restaurants, shopping, solitude, fishing.

This is the best beach in all of the panhandle! You have the historic fort, it isn't very crowded, the beauty of the area is unbelievable. I would stay here year round if I could!
