  • Beachgoers seeking perfect sand and friendly people. There’s a really good reason why the beaches along Northwest Florida’s Scenic Highway 30A make our list year after year.
  • For seekers of the urban beach scene looking to catch waves among the barely clad beautiful people and hang at hot spots sipping cocktails just because.
  • Beach-town devotees who want the works: long beach walks, cute beach boutiques, chilled-out beach cafés, funky beach bars.
  • For beach purists who want straight- up beautiful ocean, sand and dunes, but with absolutely no sign of civilization or crowds.
