Lazy days on Laguna Beach

Situated in Florida's Bay County, Laguna Beach is an infectiously laid-back corner of the Sunshine State. Its stretch of idyllic coastline lives up to its exotic name, with palm-fringed, powder-soft white sands and clear, sun-spangled waters to cool off in. Laguna Beach vacation rentals range from cozy cottages with direct ocean access to sprawling mansions with luxury private pools, so you're bound to find a home-away-from-home ideal for your needs. And should you ever tire of lazing around in paradise, lively vacation hotspot Panama City is just a short drive away.

Activities

Get wet and wild on Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach's glistening waters draw aquatic adventurers of all ages from far and wide. Adrenalin junkies can rent jet skis and race across the waves at thrillingly high speeds, while those seeking kid-friendly thrills and spills might enjoy a hair-raising ride on a banana boat. For jaw-dropping panoramic views across the Bay County coast, you could try a spot of parasailing. Be sure to keep an eye on the ocean below, as from your elevated vantage point you may be able to spot graceful dolphins splashing around in their natural habitat.

Weather

Year-round sun on Laguna Beach

The Laguna Beach region enjoys around 320 days of sunshine a year, so it's an understandably popular 4-season destination. Laguna Beach vacation rentals are in high demand between May and October, when days tend to be long and hot, and the ocean is blissfully warm. Late spring and early fall are particularly great times to visit, as high summer brings humidity and higher rainfall. Winter weather is generally agreeably mild, but rarely warm enough for sunbathing, whilst nights can get a little chilly.

Natural features

Get back to nature at Laguna Beach

The Laguna Beach region is a haven for nature lovers of all persuasions. Less than 10 minutes by car from the coast, Conservation Park is a huge sprawl of carefully preserved wilderness, which encompasses fragrant pine forests, verdant wetlands, and diverse flora and fauna. With pristine boardwalks and miles of unpaved trails to traipse across, it's the ideal spot for a leisurely hike or invigorating mountain bike ride. Nearby Walton County is home to exceedingly rare coastal dune lakes, where both freshwater and saltwater species live side by side.
