Rosemary Beach

South Walton , FL , United States

Rosemary has the same calm Gulf waters and sparkly quartz sand (it actually squeaks between your toes) as its neighbors along the 26-mile stretch of the Florida Panhandle. The difference: vacationers jam the beaches of Easter egg-colored Seaside, but it’s possible to find yourself alone here if you time things right (between September and December, the water still averages 79 degrees).
