Florida’s Most Relaxing Place

Florida’s Most Relaxing Place

This calm community of around 1,500 people, known as “Florida’s most relaxing place,” was recently rated one of the best places to buy a beach vacation property by Vacasa. The firm notes that the neighborhood’s median house sale price is $382,392. Additionally, Vacasa estimates that second-home owners in Navarre Beach might earn $43,200 in yearly rental revenue at a cap rate of 6.6 percent.

Comparatively to other Florida beach  drift hunters  towns, Navarre Beach offers a low cost of living. Leda Broxson of Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty and a lifelong resident of the Navarre region told Travel & Leisure that the housing market is inexpensive and offers outstanding value for money, making it a tempting alternative for people looking to buy a beach house.

On Florida’s Emerald Coast, this lovely nook was founded by Spanish explorers in the 17th century. It is still one of Florida’s best-kept secrets despite being adjacent to well-known locations like Destin (in fact, it was the town’s prior tagline). Visitors enter a tranquil retreat with miles of undeveloped coastline once they cross the Navarre Beach Causeway, which connects the town to Florida’s mainland. The smooth, white sand here is made up of quartz fragments that have been there for millions of years, washing down from the Appalachian Mountains. It makes for a rather magnificent setting when combined with the ocean’s shimmering emerald waves.

“Navarre Beach is home to some of the world’s most stunning beaches. It’s the ideal spot to unwind and enjoy the sun with soft, white sand and beautiful water. The beach is also less congested than other well-liked Florida beaches, giving it a more tranquil and private spot to own a beach house, according to Broxson.

The community attracts outdoor enthusiasts looking for plenty of water adventures, hikes, bird watching, beachcombing, snorkeling, and scuba diving because it is situated between Navarre Beach Marine Park and Gulf Islands National Seashore. Additionally, it has the 1,545-foot-long longest fishing pier in Florida and the Gulf of Mexico, where fisherman congregate to attempt and capture one of the numerous fish species that call this area home, including whiting, redfish, blackfin tuna, and pompano.

While Navarre Beach has mainly remained unnoticed, tourists are starting to take notice of the area more and more. Since 2016, the bed tax revenue in Santa Rosa County, which includes Navarre Beach, has increased by double.
