24 Miles of Sugar-White Shores
Florida's Emerald Coast offers 24 miles of pristine white-sand beaches stretching along the Gulf of Mexico. This sand, made up of pure Appalachian quartz, remains remarkably cool even in the heat of summer, and gives the waters here their trademark emerald-green color by reflecting sunlight back up through the surf.

Experience the best fishing that Florida has to offer in the warm waters of the Emerald Coast. Sailfish, marlin, wahoo and many more await offshore fishermen in the deep blue waters of the Gulf, while inshore fishermen cast after cobia, bluefish, tarpon and mackerel.
