A pleasant experience all around. This is a very nice island with lots to do. Lots of sand, lots of water, lots of room to explore, swim, or just enjoy the sun. Great time.

Wow, what a wonderful beach. Wonderful restaurants and shops in the area. Excellent bike path and National Golf Shore Park is located in Santa Rosa Sound. This is an excellent area to take family and children to. Can’t wait to go back.

Between the condo/hotel sprawls of Pensacola and Navarre Beaches, this area is a nice escape from the tourist traps, but parking is at a premium, so go early in the day.

Very clean beaches, pure white sand, and blue water as clear as anything. Beautiful sunsets and great beach to just sit and admire the view.

The beaches here are as white as snow and the ocean water is a clear blue green. There are many places to pull off and park and several spots with restroom facilities and picnic spots. Well worth the time to visit!

Santa Rosa is by far one of the best kept secrets in Florida. A good selection of hotels, restaurants (Flounders & Peg Legged Pete's are a must)! The Blue Angels Museum at the Pensacola Navel base is just minutes away as well as other sites...More

There are plenty of hotels at each end of the Island. There are a few at Navarre Beach, including one new one, Springhill Suites. There are quite a few hotel options on the other end of the Island at Pensacola Beach.
