    Enjoy the sand and sea in Santa Rosa Beach

    As the town's name suggests, Santa Rosa Beach is surrounded by some spectacular coastline. Grayton Beach State Park is an unspoiled area with long stretches of almost white sand, sitting on the edge of shallow, turquoise seas. There are 2000 acres of walking trails through dense forest, which lead to the quiet beaches where you can swim, snorkel or just enjoy the views. Stay in nearby Santa Rosa Beach vacation rentals, and you'll also be close to Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, which is made up of lakes, woods, and beaches, ideal for fishing, swimming or sailing.

    Discover the local culture in Santa Rosa Beach

    If you can pull yourself away from the sandy beaches, the small town of Santa Rosa Beach has lots of local culture, from small art galleries to theaters. The Repertory Theatre is set next to the beach, with indoor and outdoor shows, from live music to family-friendly productions. Elmore's Landing is a lively art gallery showing work from local artists, as well as hosting live music at night. You can find out what's going on during your trip by visiting the friendly South Walton Visitor Center, which also has information on the best local attractions.

    Santa Rosa Beach has the best of the Florida sunshine

    Santa Rosa Beach's position on the Gulf of Mexico gives it pleasant, sunny weather and, on average, 229 days of sunshine a year. The hottest months are July and August, which reach the 90s, often with high humidity. However, the warm weather lasts from around April to as late as November, so there's a long period in which to enjoy the sunshine. While the temperature drops from December to February, it can often reach into the mid-60s, so you can still enjoy the outdoors in comfort.

    Bays, bayous and beaches close to Santa Rosa Beach

    To the north of Santa Rosa Beach is Choctawhatchee Bay, a peaceful inlet that's popular for sailing and fishing, where you'll find many Santa Rosa Beach vacation rentals. This leads into the Hogtown Bayou, a marshy and humid area of wetland. It's often full of fishing boats, and you might spot ospreys in the surrounding woods. Just a short walk from town is a long promenade, with large beach houses and seafront restaurants. Here you'll find the town's namesake beach, with lightly colored sands and calm, clear waters that are warm enough for swimming in for most of the year.
