Sunset Harbor Palms condominiums are situated perfectly on Navarre Beach. The grounds are very well groomed and maintained. Our condo is located near the end of Navarre Beach, tucked away on the sound and away from the noise and traffic. Here you can enjoy the peace and calm as you sit in the lush green lawn to watch the evening sunset.
There are several nice restaurants nearby. On the island, Beach House Bar and Grill is found at the Marriott. They have a beautiful outside seating area overlooking the gulf side beach. They have a very nice breakfast. Also, Sailors Grill is good for breakfast (by the Navarre Beach boat launch). They have fresh made pastries, breads. Broussard's Cajun Restaurant, Loggerheads, and Juana's is also on the island. There is a convenience store with gas and groceries on the island as well. On Rt. 98, other restaurants such as Dewey Destins, JJ Chagos, East River Smokehouse (barbecue), TCs Front Porch, East Bay Crab House. Vinnie R's Italian, and Dave's Oyster House are good places to eat. Stripes is a good restaurant (veteran owned and located in the parking lot where Publix is). Walmart Super Center, Walmart Grocery (delivers groceries), Publix, and Winn Dixie are also grocery options in Navarre. Great coffee or favorite latte places are Deb's (drive through) and Caffeinated. Other great restaurants such as Hemingways, Flounders, Grand Marlin, Peg Leg Pete’s, Margaritaville, and other dining options may be found at Pensacola Beach. Just follow Rt. 399 West along the Gulf Islands National Seashore, a spectacular drive along the white sandy beaches and emerald waters.
BRING YOUR BOAT/KAYAK - You can also bring your kayak to paddle around in the sound. Rentals are available on the island.
BICYCLE - Bring along your bicycle to explore around the beach. Biking is also great if you choose to ride along the entire Gulf Island National Seashore (absolutely breathtaking views). It is a 7-mile bike ride in a safe lane that allows you to breathe in all the sights, sounds, and magnificence of the sea! You can also ride all the way on the bike trail to Pensacola Beach! Rentals are available on the island.
THE PIER AT SUNSET HARBOR PALMS - Please note: Our pier sustained damage during Hurricane Sally in September 2020. Repairs are planned but pier may not be available during all visits. When repaired, be sure to bring along your gear and fish right from the dock, provided exclusively for guests of Sunset Harbor. Fish of many varieties are found here including redfish, speckled trout, and mackerel.
NAVARRE BEACH PIER - Want that bigger fish? Go to the Navarre Beach Pier where from sunrise to sunset you can fish all day! Great catches may be pompano, flounder, blackfin tuna, cobia, tarpon, king and Spanish mackerel. The pier is 1534 feet long and 30 feet above the water. Rent a fishing pole at the bait and tackle shop or just enjoy the stroll along the pier or the breeze at the pier restaurant.
DEEP SEA EXCURSIONS - For the ultimate fishing experience, schedule an all-day deep sea fishing charter in nearby Destin or Pensacola, complete with a captain who knows all the right fishing spots!
CASINOS - Good Time Tours (a charter bus company) conducts daily trips to Biloxi, MS area casinos with departures daily from Navarre Beach. Buses pick you up early at Winn Dixie (just across Navarre Beach causeway bridge) each day Sunday through Saturday and return later in evening.
SEA TURTLE CONSERVANCY - We love our sea turtles at Navarre Beach! Kids and adults alike may want to checkout the nearby Sea Turtle Conservancy to learn about these remarkable creatures and meet Sweet Pea, a juvenile green turtle who was found wrapped in fishing gear both inside and out and badly injured. Sweet Pea has since settled into her new home and is rehabilitating from the trauma causing her to lose a front flipper. You may notice the low mounted lights along the beach. Most lighting has been converted to have sea turtle friendly fixtures and low light bulbs. That is because nesting season mostly occurs at night and when hatchlings emerge, they can scurry down the beach to the sea without being disoriented by bright lights.
SANTA ROSA SOUND - On our magnificent Santa Rosa sound you can paddle board, kayak, boat, jet ski, fish, and wind surf! (rentals available nearby). The sound is especially nice if you want to simply wade or allow small children to play in the water without large waves. Find your favorite spot along the long, pristine stretch of beaches on both sides of the Gulf Shore National Seashore.
HISTORIC FORTS - Along the Gulf Islands National Seashore there are unique places to visit and explore! Aside from the miles of white beaches you will find three historic fortifications spanning centuries of sea coastal defensive systems at Fort Barrancas. Hike along the historic routes used by soldiers while stationed at the forts. Historic Fort Pickens, one of the largest brick forts built in the United States, provided the setting for a serious effort by a small group of men to avert or at least postpone the outbreak of the Civil War. The Naval Live Oaks Area includes 7.5 miles of hiking trails and the fully accessible 0.8 mile Brackenridge Nature Trail directly behind park headquarters.
PENSACOLA BEACH - Take a drive to Pensacola Beach for other great restaurants! Many to choose from on the water front and try one of the local favorite drinks, the Bushwacker. A personal favorite restaurant is The Oar House and Hemingways. Also, the Crab House, Casino Beach Grill, SandShakers, Flounders, and many more! Explore historic Seville Square with morning brunches and great jazz! This historic section of Pensacola is filled with great night life and beautiful historic structures.
BLUE ANGELS! - Be sure to visit the nearby Naval Air Station and you may be lucky enough to see the Blue Angels on a practice run! The Blue Angels do their spectacular final air show in Pensacola on Veterans Day, November 11. There are other air shows throughout the year. The US Air Force has 2 bases in the area: Hurlburt Field and Eglin. You may spot an occasional Osprey CV-22 or military helicopter on training flight.
NATIONAL NAVAL AVIATION MUSEUM - Take an amazing day trip to The National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, one of the most-visited museums in the state of Florida. See more than 150 beautifully restored aircraft representing Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard Aviation. These historic and one-of-a-kind aircraft are displayed both inside the Museum’s over 350,000 square feet of exhibit space and outside on its 37-acre grounds. Fly in one of their full motion simulators or see The Magic of Flight, their own Laser Powered Giant Screen Digital Theater film projected on a seven-story high screen and feel like you’ve had a bona fide ride with the Blue Angels. While there, enjoy a delicious lunch at the authentic Cubi Bar Café, decorated with more than 1,000 squadron and unit plaques reassembled from the historic Officers’ Club at Cubi Point in the Philippines.
THE GULF BREEZE ZOO - The Gulf Coast Area’s award-winning Gulf Breeze Zoo is home to more than 900 native and exotic animals. The Zoo offers many hands on animal encounters and kid’s activities.
