A trip to Navarre gives families a chance to revel in its beautiful beaches.

Among Florida's treasured barrier islands, Navarre Beach is a natural retreat for tourists. Nestled between Gulf Islands National Seashore and Navarre Beach County Park, this beach community offers solitude and simplicity. Its pristine beaches are named among the best in the nation year after year, and visitors compare crossing Navarre Bridge to transcending paradise time and time again.

Navarre Beach's 12 miles of shoreline boast sand so clean and powdery white it literally squeaks under your  toes. Its emerald clear waters evoke fun in the sun, attracting swimmers, snorkelers, and sailors alike. The warm Gulf waters also attract a plethora of fish, making the region famous for the beloved pastime of fishing. Gulf Islands National Seashore offers nature lovers eight miles of federally protected, undeveloped shoreline - the longest continuous stretch of protected beach in northwest Florida, perfect for sun seekers, birdwatchers and outdoor enthusiasts.

Equally inviting to tourists is Navarre Beach County Park – 130 acres of beautiful beach, lush wetlands and native vegetation. One-third of the park, which opened in 2004, is completely undeveloped and will remain this way. The perfect place for a picnic or a stroll on the beach, the park provides visitors with the option of playing Gulf- or sound-side, the latter of which has been dubbed "Mom's Beach" because it offers children a haven for getting wet.
