WaterColor Inn Experience

Santa Rosa Beach Things to Do

It’s no surprise that WaterColor® Inn has remained the go-to resort for cherished family getaways.  With its functional yet intimate accommodations, distinct location on Scenic Highway 30A and overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, and variety of comfortable, convenient, and just plain fun family-friendly amenities, WaterColor Inn is the ideal beach destination for families, featuring plenty of recreational options. Additionally, with the recent expansions of WaterColor® Beach Club and Camp WaterColor®, developed by the WaterColor® Community Association, WaterColor Inn now boasts the most pool accesses on 30A, as well as a handful of new casual dining restaurants – providing families with plenty of options for basking in the Northwest Florida sun, just steps away from the area’s iconic sugar-white-sand beaches.

Beach Life

With 80 miles of impeccable beaches winding along the Gulf of Mexico, Florida's Emerald Coast is one of the country’s most beautiful vacation destinations. Its name is derived from the emerald-green hue of the water, which is a result of the sand – made of pure Appalachian quartz – reflecting the sunlight through the surf.
