Where is the Emerald Coast?
Emerald Coast refers to Florida's coastal area on the northern tip of the Gulf of Mexico, spanning from Gulf Shores, AL to Panama City Beach, FL. The approximately 100 miles of coastline stretches through untamed wildlife preserves, sand dunes, and sleepy beachfront communities.
Things to do on the Emerald Coast
Pack light and travel often. Each of our vacation rentals is surrounded by friendly communities, each offering a unique sense of culture, history, and natural beauty along the Gulf. Board a unique Buccaneer Pirate Cruise in Destin, feed penguins at the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park in family-friendly Fort Walton Beach, and shop until you drop at Pier Park in Panama City Beach.
Golf enthusiasts can practice their swing at the well-managed golf course in the peaceful resort town of Navarre, while the rest of the group enjoys an educational visit to the National Naval Aviation Museum in historic Pensacola. Wherever you roam along the Emerald Coast, excitement awaits.
Experience the thrill of the sea, fresh air, and a thing called 'island time' for yourself when you stay in one of our fantastic Emerald Coast beach house rentals, where you'll create long-lasting memories—and a few tan lines.
