Now we’ve barely mentioned our beach! The Emerald Coast is on the western panhandle of Florida that has the famed “Sugar Beach,” so called because of the nearly pure white super fine silica sand which has the consistency of sugar. These super refined crumbs of the Appalachian Mountains that have been washed down from the mountains for thousands of years now cover the beaches of the Emerald Coast and are around 97% pure quartz. This sand is unique in that it is so soft that it will squeak under your feet. Little wonder that it is considered one of the finest beaches in the world! Western Florida boasts over 300 sunny days per year. Water temps are high 80's in the summer and low 70's to mid 60’s in winter.
