The Perfect Gathering Place for Sea Turtles and People Alike. Every year, baby sea turtles hatch, scramble across the sugar-white sand, and dive into the crystal clear waters of the Emerald Coast. Like the groups who gather here, they just can’t wait to get into the water.
But unlike sea turtles, our visitors have much more of our award-winning beaches to explore. The Heart of Florida’s Emerald Coast is home to world-class attractions, legendary fishing and golf, and unique restaurants and shopping – not to mention fabulous accommodation options. This rare combination of natural and manmade wonders attracts hundreds of groups to the Emerald Coast every year, all year long.
