South Walton County Beaches

There is no question that the white-sandy beaches of Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast are among the most spectacular in the world. In fact, NBC’s Today Show ranked the beaches to its list of America’s Top 10 Most Beautiful Places in 2007. The awe-inspiring, 26-mile stretch of beach from Sandestin to Rosemary Beach is an attraction like none other.

With the shimmering Gulf of Mexico lapping its shore, the beach is as much relaxing as it is thrilling. The gentle sound of the waves and the warm, salty air stays with visitors and beckons them to come back again.

The Beaches of South Walton is proud to be the only destination in the country with all its beaches certified as “Blue Wave,” an environmental seal of approval from the Clean Beaches Council.  This natural resource is as precious as those who call the beach home – from the wildlife that inhabit the land and water to the people who live and work there.
