Gulf Island National Seashore

Gulf Island National Seashore

#1 - Gulf Islands National Seashore Undulating with the Panhandle’s patent dunes of talcum sands, this continuum of platinum sandscape feels otherworldly and primitive. It stretches from Perdido Key on the state’s westernmost waterfront and continues at Pensacola Beach’s Fort Pickens National Park and the Santa Rosa Area – the most secluded. Crossovers take visitors from parking to the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. There’s just nowhere quite like it in the world for swimming, birding, camping, fishing and exploring history and nature. Island TimeIf you are considering a trip to Florida’s treasured barrier islands, a Navarre Beach vacation is an opportunity to visit the most beautiful of all west Florida beaches. It is situated on Santa Rosa Island, surrounded by protected natural coastline, ideal for a romantic getaway, weekend getaway—or a place to spend the whole season. Our pristine beaches are named among the best in the nation year after year, and visitors compare crossing Navarre Bridge to transcending paradise time and time again. Here the waters are emerald clear, and the sand is so clean and powdery white it literally squeaks under your toes. http://www.santarosa.fl.gov/navarrebeach/
