Beautiful and Peaceful (Navarre Beach) Florida


We stumbled upon Navarre Beach by accident.  We were looking for a place to stop for the night on a trip to the Florida Keys. I am one of those people who believes that flying somewhere is like reading the first and last page of a book. Driving road trips are what I love. My trip planning involves “wonder what there is to see between here and there”. So, on this particular trip, Navarre Beach looked interesting and lodging was fairly cheap.





I was really shocked by the beauty and peacefulness of the area. It was afternoon and cloudy when we arrived at the hotel. My mother and I dropped our bags off and hit the bridge to the beach to check it out.







Sugary white sand, emerald green water, and very few people is what we found. This place was perfect!







We walked along the beach to the fishing pier. Past the pier, we could see rows of condos lining the beach. Up towards the parking area, some teens were playing volleyball. Upbeat music coming from the restaurant set the perfect beach vibe. We had found a paradise!



Navarre Beach is located about 17 miles west of Pensacola Beach on Gulf Boulevard.






The pier there is 1,545 feet long (the longest in Florida) and stands 30 feet above the water. A shop, attached to the pier, rents fishing poles and sells bait and tackle.




Best Western Navarre Waterfront is where we usually stay. It runs less than $100 a night and is clean.

Address: 


8697 Navarre Pkwy
Navarre, FL 32566






We usually prefer to stay right on the beach, but the views across the bay are amazing from the Best Western!




We have been back to Navarre beach several times since our first visit. We continue to love it just as much. It remains one of the most beautiful and peaceful places in the Florida Panhandle.


Happy Travels!
