What Is The Best Month To Visit Navarre Beach?

Arguably, the best times to visit Navarre Beach are the months of November and April, but anywhere during these months is a good idea to visit.

During these months, the weather is cooler and more comfortable, making it the perfect time for a beach getaway.

You can also avoid the heavier crowds of the summer months and find a cheaper stay.

Can You Swim In Navarre Beach?

Yes!  The Navarre Beach Boardwalk is a popular place to visit for the views on the pier, the food at the restaurants, and swimming in the Emerald Coast.

There are also several beach access points throughout the city.

The waters on the Gulf Coast beaches are generally a bit calmer than the Atlantic Coast of Florida, but you can still enjoy water activities such as surfing and paddleboarding.

If you are looking for a shallow spot for the kids, you may like the Sound side (Santa Rosa Sound) better, but the water is not as clear on this side of Navarre Beach.



As you can see, there are plenty of fun things to do in Navarre Beach!
