Miramar Beach vacation rentals

Miramar Beach—a springboard for adventure

Stunning beach views come as standard in Miramar Beach vacation rentals. This long, narrow peninsula on Florida’s sun-drenched Gulf Coast is bordered on both sides by glistening white sands and sparkling azure waters. The resort’s colorful designer stores and friendly eateries are a perfect complement to its thrilling water sports and lively nightlife. From tranquil sunrise to spectacular sunset, Miramar Beach vacation rentals deliver all the local action to your doorstep and open up enticing possibilities for exploring the heritage landmarks and unspoiled natural habitats of South Walton County.

Miramar Beach for fish lovers

The Gulf of Mexico is a haven for anglers, with local companies offering the opportunity to test your skills against red snapper and grouper in the offshore shallows or venture into deeper waters in search of tuna, blue marlin, and even dolphins. Chartering a boat with an expert captain who knows all the likely spots will produce the best results. Not only can you look forward to a tasty supper, but you’ll be able to enjoy panoramic views of the coastline. Why not pack up a picnic and make a day of it, winding up with a gentle stroll home along the scenic shore?

Miramar Beach’s fascinating military past

Military history fans won’t be able to resist the chance to visit Fort Pickens. This impressive pentagonal fort was built to strengthen the US Army’s presence on the Gulf Coast in the wake of the War of 1812. It was decommissioned in 1947, and is now protected for posterity on the National Register of Historic Places. Guided tours are offered throughout the year. The scenic 60-mile journey from downtown Miramar Beach vacation rentals offers the chance to enjoy the wild beauty of Santa Rosa Island or plan a detour to some of the other military installations that once defended this coastline from enemy invasion.

Miramar Beach—a resort for all seasons

Florida’s Gulf Coast is famous for its year-round vacation-friendly weather. No matter what the season, you’ll be greeted by blue skies and balmy seas. Temperatures regularly hit the low 90s in summer, with the highest peaks typically recorded in July. July is also the rainiest month, when humid subtropical storms are not uncommon. Skip the summer crowds by booking Miramar Beach vacation rentals on the beach in spring or fall and benefit from lower rates and reliable weather, or soak up the winter sun from the soothing comfort of your own hot tub.

Close encounters with the marine creatures of Miramar Beach

Visitors to Navarre Beach Marine Park, on the western tip of Santa Rosa Island, can learn about the local marine life before viewing it for themselves. The Science Center features hands-on activities and touch tanks, and the Sea Turtle Conservation Center offers the chance to make friends with resident loggerhead turtles. Scuba diving and snorkeling on the offshore artificial reefs provide clear views of the diverse marine creatures of Santa Rosa Sound and the Gulf of Mexico. The marine park is open daily from sunrise to sunset.
