Soft white sand, emerald green water and one more place to stretch out and just relax. Navarre Beach is a great place to kayak along the shore or paddle out and see what fish are biting today. Navarre Beach is the fastest growing community in Santa Rosa County, partly due to a new and scenic road that connects it to Pensacola Beach. In recent years, there has been a major beach restoration project that brought in over 3 million cubic yards of sand and built up a 14 foot high dune. While you can hit the greens for a round of golf at one of the many area courses, Navarre Beach is all about nature. Eight of the 12 miles of beach here are part of the Gulf Islands Natural Seashore and are federally protected. You can hike, picnic, bike along one of the trails, snorkel, fish and go boating. Try horseback riding or bird watching with the family; Navarre Beach is a great place to be still and get back to nature. They have many hotels, resorts and vacation rentals should you choose to vacation on the beach.
When the day is done, as with all the beaches along the Panhandle, do yourself a favor; make it a point to stop and just sit to watch the sunset. It is a memory you'll take with you and cherish for the rest of your life.
