Santa Rosa Beach

Bursting at the seams with art, food and outdoor fun.

As South Walton’s largest beach neighborhood, there is something for everyone. Variety is at the heart of this beach neighborhood – lush parks, sugar-white sand, craft breweries and amazing eats.

Santa Rosa Beach is the spot for those who can’t get enough of everything South Walton offers. Founded in 1910, Santa Rosa Beach has a rich history. This long-standing vacation destination remains a visitor hotspot years later — in fact, Santa Rosa Beach was recently named one of Travel + Leisure’s Top 5 Favorite Towns in America.

Commune with Nature

Retreats like Point Washington State Forest offer all-natural escapes for enthusiasts of any skill level. Soak up the sun on the sand and then head to Eden Gardens State Park to soak up a bit of local history.

Brewing Something Special

Restaurants in Santa Rosa Beach welcome first-time foodies as well as seasoned palates. The view and the seafood are equally exquisite at Vue on 30A on the Gulf or The Bay on Choctawhatchee Bay -- plus this neighborhood hosts two local breweries.
