Santa Rosa Beach, Florida is a vacation destination that has been highly preferred since its founding in 1910. Vacationers come back season after season to enjoy the fine, sandy white beach and all of the many touristy things to do in and around Santa Rosa Beach. Although unincorporated, Santa Rosa is part of a 26-mile stretch of Northwest Florida’s famed Emerald Coast; Santa Rosa Beach is just one of the 16 distinct beach neighborhoods in South Walton County, each with its own traditions, charm and visual style. Santa Rosa Beach offers luxury beach houses, upscale dining, and an eclectic artist colony known as Gulf Place. Santa Rosa Beach provides several entrances to Point Washington State Forest, a 15,000-acre preserve with more than 10 natural communities. All of South Walton is famous for its natural beauty, pristine waters and sugary white sand beaches, including one of Travel + Leisure magazine’s "Best Beaches on Earth" for families and one of the Top 5 Favorite Towns in America.
When it is time for a vacation destination, see what Santa Rosa Beach has to offer. There are vacation rental units available in this beautiful beach neighborhood. If you’re looking for a contemporary beach home, a cozy cottage, or a condo, Santa Rosa Beach has everything to meet your needs.
There are a multitude of activities that guarantee you will not experience a dull moment in a Santa Rosa Beach, unless you elect to, while vacationing in this small portion of paradise. Horseback rides with Arnett's Gulfside Trail Rides, or golfing at Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club a good time is awaiting. For something more tranquil, step back in time with a visit to Eden Gardens State Park, home of the historic, antique-filled Wesley House.
Some people, especially the ones who cook, can appreciate the fact that when you've worked up an appetite, there's a wide selection of restaurants to satisfy your hunger. Grab a bowl of seafood chowder and a slice of key lime pie at Stinky's Fish Camp, or head to The Perfect Pig for an unbelievable grilled cheese with sugar bacon. However, if you want to experience the taste of the sea while vacationing in a Santa Rosa Beach vacation rental, pick up some fresh gulf seafood at the local market and cook and prepare a feast in the comfort of your own vacation rental unit.
When it comes to fresh fish, here’s a thought; Florida’s warm and sunny weather provides plenty of opportunities for fishing all year-round, so go catch your own. The best advice you can heed is to hire a knowledgeable guide in order to have the best possible fishing experience. Guides know exactly where to go and what to fish for, plus you won't need a fishing license if the boat is appropriately licensed.
If you have experience fishing, and prefer to be in charge of your own destiny, check out what is available by kayak or paddleboard fishing. Control your own adventure and get a little peace and quiet as you drop a line while you sit on the water's surface. Whatever your fishing preferences or level of experience, you'll have the time of your life fishing in Santa Rosa Beach.
