Miramar, nestled at the westernmost end of South Walton, promises a wealth of sugar sand beaches. Miramar Beach Regional Beach Access- 49, located at 2375 Scenic Gulf Drive, Miramar Beach, FL 32550, is a favorite with locals and visitors alike.


Energetic, popular stretch of white sand and turquoise water with all the amenities.

Snorkeling! Parasailing! Banana Boat rides! A beachfront restaurant! Beloved by families and excitement lovers alike, Miramar has a vibrant, fun personality, brimming with things to do and perks like restrooms and beach wheelchairs.

See, feel

A pure quartz sand beach; calm, shallow water that’s so clear you can see your toes when you’re waist deep or more; and a gently sloping bottom make Miramar perfect for timid swimmers and little ones. Here, you’ll see toddlers exploring tide pools; rainbow-hued parasails high above the blue-green waves; and the occasional luxe boat cruising offshore, adding to the tropical ambience.

While the waves are usually gentle, waves, tides and offshore systems can sometimes make conditions rough.

On or near the beach

Miramar is all about relaxing—or all about action, as you please. Strolling the shore with your toes in the surf; wading in the tide pools or swimming; and catching rays under a peppermint striped umbrella are favorites with beachgoers. The snorkeling is superb, with shallow, artificial Dolphin Reef just offshore, delivering an underwater landscape of tropical fish and sea creatures.

Sited right behind Pompano Joe's, Banana Boat Rides has got you covered for adventures. The Banana Boat rides promise a screaming good time for up to six passengers at a time, as well as a chance to spot dolphins, sea turtles and rays—but that’s just the tip of the sandbar. Banana Boats also offers snorkeling tours; as well as parasailing rides for sky high adrenaline and views. 

Fuel the fun with a picnic, or splash into Pompano Joe’s Seafood Restaurant on Miramar Beach’s east end, serving up fresh Gulf seafood, tropical concoctions and live music.
