This is a great beach but beware the stretch through Seaside and Watercolor is private so you can only legitimately use if staying in the resort. This means not cheap but as with so much in life - you get what you pay for. Cabana...More

2 families with teenagers vacationing together. Awesome area with many places for them to explore. Many great house rentals available in different types of areas. Would highly recommend!

We chose Santa Rosa over Destin. We are so glad we did. It is very laid back. You can walk to dinner, bakeries and ice cream. Our happiness. Beautiful beaches.

A real Gulf beach with typical fine, white sand and a wide, welcoming stretch of space with ample room for sun-worshippers as well as Frisbee and kite enthusiasts. Families are welcome and there is plenty of food close-by.

The beaches along 30A are incredible. The white sugar-sand beach is one of the best, if not the best beaches in the world. The restaurants in this area are incredible.

This beach is clean, and has lifeguards in certain spots. However, I don't recommend the Seaside/Watercolor area during Spring Break. Way too many unsupervised teenagers. Go stay in the quiet side of Seagrove for a relaxing trip with smaller children.

This whole area along 30A is great. The water is clear and the sand is white. If you ever visit, you will never go to another beach.
