Nicknamed in 1983 the ''Emerald Coast'' after the crystal clear green shaded waters, the Florida Panhandle Beaches are famous for being a spot where nature never ceases to amaze. With numerous activities, echoes reminding of the past or appearances in Hollywood movies, Florida's North West sun covered beaches are the destinations to promote the easy, breezy way of life.
320 Kilometers of Pure Delight
The Florida Panhandle Beaches are very accessible to the ones looking to spend their spring break, the ones looking for a quick way to unwind or the ones wanting to enjoy a warm family vacation. Stretched throughout four counties, the emerald waters and their fine sugar-like sands are approximately 320 kilometers (200 miles) long. Situated between Alabama (North, West), Georgia (North) and the Gulf of Mexico (South) the Panhandle Beaches can offer aside of their foaming waves some natural coastal dunes, forests and great camping spots.
All Beaches Mesmerizing and Radiant
We mostly pick a beach thinking about aspects like the quality of water and sand, their accessibility or whether they are secluded or agglomerated. What happens if all the beaches in the Panhandle bunch score maximal grades? In this case the choice might be an easier one knowing some of the highlights by analyzing these green shaded ''gemstones''.
Which One to Choose?
Also called the ''Seafood Capital of the World'' and known to be the third best golf location in the USA, Panama City Beach is a hotspot not only when it comes to gastronomic delicacies or competing in the courses. Here you can commune with nature in St. Andrew State Park, participate in the yearly Ironman Triathlon or live like the MTV superstars.
Crayton Beach State Park is the more secluded choice. Part of the park which was opened in 1968, this beach offers the pure and simple means to reach relaxation.
Navane Beach made famous because of its scenic road connection to Pensacola Beach is another method of getting the sweet escape from the average hustle and bustle.
Believed to have been inhabited by American Indians in the 7th century, Destin Beach carries the name of a pioneer in the fishing industry. Nowadays known as the ''World's luckiest Fishing Village'', this beach has the best equipped fleet in the whole Florida area.
Walton Beach Florida is probably the first preference if you are traveling with young ones because of the family amusement parks at Fort Walton Beach and the Emerald Coast Science Center. The sites once sailed by pirates will remind of some of the wildest adventures and restaurants like the Black Pearl will fit the theme and spoil you with culinary treats.
Enjoy the Emerald Coast, a smooth and refined vacation in each of the Florida Panhandle Beaches.
