Santa Rosa Beach is located on the Emerald Coast of Florida. The Emerald Coast is 26 miles along Florida's northwest shore. Santa Rosa is just one of 16 beach communities, each with their own style, grace, flavor, and traditions. With luxury beach homes and upscale dining, it's no wonder Yahoo! Travel named it one of the Ten Best Beach Destinations. Lapping waves, turquoise waters, and refreshing white sands bring visitors who enjoy nonstop indoor and outdoor action. While progressive and opulent, Santa Rosa Beach still offers unparalleled old-world enchantment.
