Located in Santa Rosa County, Florida, nestled between Fort Walton Beach and Pensacola, Navarre is one of the Emerald Coast’s “Best Kept Secrets.” Surrounded by State parks and preserved National Seashore, Navarre is a lovely beach community, offering 12-miles of emerald green water and pristine white sandy beaches. Without a doubt, Navarre is a unique quiet paradise of peace and solitude.
Although it is a very small town, Navarre has many fun activities that are all family friendly, where most of the restaurants and shops are locally owned. Navarre is only a 20-mile drive to Destin, where you can find more great local restaurants and shopping at one of several outdoor malls.
The local economy is driven by two primary factors: Tourism and the Military. The tourism industry is seasonal, with summer being the primary season and a smaller peak season during spring break. Much like our neighbors in Fort Walton Beach and Destin, Navarre also has a large military presence, given its proximity to Hurlburt Field, Pensacola Naval Air Station and Whiting Field.
Navarre offers an excellent school system, where the mission is to prepare students for success by providing a superior, relevant education, accomplished through the collaboration of parents, teachers, students and community members.
Overall, Navarre is a relaxing blend of waterfront beauty and adventure that begs to be explored! When you visit the Emerald Coast, you will want to make our paradise your own #StaycationNWFL – Where the BEST vacation is in your own backyard!
