The Rosemary beach development tries to hard and falls short. The developer crammed too many lots into a small space and allowed very cheap construction standards. The finishes inside the house are a cheap as money can buy and I have little doubt that none...More

So many gorgeous beaches along 30A including Rosemary Beach. We biked from Watercolor (45 min or so) but if you don’t want to bike (rental places all over highway 30A) I recommend driving and stopping at as many as you can. Aly’s beach is also...More

We finally made it to Rosemary Beach. I was quite the long drive, but so worth seeing such a unique town with a mild European feel. We rented a small place within walking distance to the main square with clothing shops and quite a few...More

Fantastic location with an amazing beach and a nice downtown area, but it caters to a very upscale crowd ($25 a day for beach chair rentals???) so just make sure that you are prepared to break the bank or strategically budget your trip via Costco...More

What a great trip! The beach is absolutely gorgeous. White sands, clean, and a relaxing family environment. Flight was quick and easy. I definitely would return.

March 2018, a little cold, but the beaches were beautiful. Fine white sand. Shopping area is surrounded by townhomes that are rented out to travelers. Lots of parking available.

My family is considering renting a house for a vacation mid-June 2019 right when school gets out (my parents, husband, and kids ages 4 and 7). I’ve read very different reviews about crowds. Some people have said the beach is crazy, shoulder to shoulder with teenagers playing loud music and acting crazy. Others have said it’s not crowded, nice and quiet, great for families. I’m worried that it’ll be crazy and stressful if we go right at the start of summer vacation as opposed to May. Any insight on crowds from people who have experienced it at that time of year, mid-June? Also wondering about ease of getting to restaurants/other things to do because some have said you can’t find parking and walking/biking is best. However, neither of my parents may be up for much of a walk. Thanks!

Agree with previous reviewer that you'll have good luck at restaurants if you eat a bit earlier, before 7pm. IMO, driving & parking in Rosemary Beach is not a good idea. The distances aren't that far, a mile max, so you... More
