Located on Santa Rosa Island, Navarre Beach is known for its rolling sand dunes that look solid but are in a constant state of change. They are made of lighter grains of sand blown onto the barrier island by offshore winds.
Typical of Navarre Beach are pristine white beaches, teal green waters, sea oats swaying in the breeze, and breathtaking sunsets. The emerald green water and sugar white sand is what Navarre Beach is best known for. There’s just no substitute for standing ankle deep in the breaking surf to fully experience the colors, textures, and sounds that make Navarre Beach astounding. Located along the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Navarre Beach is the perfect vacation destination offering excitement, relaxation and fun for the whole family!
The Nature Walk is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of Santa Rosa Sound and features playground equipment, picnic and recreation area. It features a spring-fed pond stocked with fish and fowl located along the trail. The seasonal, award winning Panhandle Butterfly House is found in the same area, and features native butterflies and plant life.
You can also stop in and see the butterflies in all their glory at the Panhandle Butterfly House. The effortless, graceful flight of literally hundreds of these creatures can be seen right here on the Emerald Coast, at the Panhandle Butterfly House. It is one of the handful of butterfly houses in the entire country dedicated to native species, so what you see here you might very well see in your back yard when you go home.
Outstanding restaurants are found in the area. Many specialize in fresh local seafood and regional recipes. Live entertainment, mixed with great food and a beautiful view of the setting sun on the water, make for a very relaxing, enjoyable day at Navarre Beach.
