Rosemary Beach’s New Urbanist style, West Indies-inspired design, welcoming town square, quiet pocket parks and, well, that gorgeous namesake beach, create a luxurious neo-traditional community that is as sunny in disposition as it is in weather conditions. 


Wake up to a water view, meet friends at the racquet club or sip coffee with friends at one of the village’s many green spaces. Have a beach picnic with the kids or slip away for well-deserved “me” time at a world-class spa. The vibrant Town Center hums with easygoing activity and daily life – and the Gulf of Mexico is always just steps away.

Everyday Life 

Luxury-seeking families and older adults are drawn to expansive residences and charming carriage houses and cottages in Rosemary Beach that take full advantage of the village’s expansive greens, inspired architecture, white-sand beach and delightfully curated public art. Friends gather at the weekly farmers’ market or cool off in one of the four community pools. They mix and mingle at the locally owned boutiques lining the brick-paved Main Street and town square. Sunset cocktail gatherings take place on the wide-open porches that wrap around nearly every home. And romantics stroll hand-in-hand along boardwalk promenades and secret pathways.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

There is no shortage of upscale dining options in Rosemary Beach where the foodie-focused residents ensure the continued success of many such establishments. Choose from world-class menus at Edward’s Fine Food & Wine, where specialties include bacon-wrapped quail, yellowfin tuna zaatar and steak frites, then move on to La Crema Tapas & Chocolates for indulgent, shareable (or not) desserts like the “OMG,” whipped espresso-cream sandwiches between two warm triple chocolate-chip cookies. 


Pescado is a perennial favorite for its casual fine dining, seafood grill and rooftop bar overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Clean lines and subtle coastal colors impart a high-end Emerald Coast ambiance as you dine on pan-seared scallops and sip a refreshing cocktail as the sun goes down over Rosemary Beach. Another gourmet favorite, Restaurant Paradis tempts savvy palates with innovative and tantalizing dishes inspired by the bounty of the Gulf waters. Try the shrimp and middlins, bacon-, horseradish- and lobster-encrusted grouper or cast-iron filet alongside a glass of Napa Valley sauvignon blanc. 


More casual, but no less pleasing are the family-favorite Cowgirl Kitchen and The Summer Kitchen Cafe. Any day by the water is elevated with breakfast tacos and waffles, or home-made pizzas and overstuffed sandwiches at these inviting eateries. 


If you’d prefer to gather fresh produce and baked goods and whip up an unforgettable meal in your own beachfront home, be sure to attend the weekly 30A Farmers’ market. In a beautiful park setting, around a sparkling fountain, farmers, makers and bakers gather along cobblestone walkways to share their highest-quality products. 


While there are countless independent shops and intriguing art galleries to choose from in the French Quarter-esque Town Center, when it comes time to restocking your beach read pile, you’ll want to head to the Hidden Lantern Bookstore. Whether you’re into romance or mystery, bestsellers or biographies, you’ll find the stories you seek from the store’s 15,000 titles. 


Shop with purpose at the OKO Lifestyle Boutique, where you’ll find in-house brand clothing, as well as pieces carefully selected by owners Katie and Abbie to provide an intentional shopping experience. The OKO brand is hand cut and sewn by men and women in Los Suarez, Dominican Republic, successfully supporting that community and its residents’ livelihoods. 

Rosemary Beach is within close proximity (walking or biking distance) to Inlet Beach and the shops and restaurants at 30Avenue, as well as the Villages at Seacrest Beach with even more dining and shopping opportunities.

Things to Do

Rosemary Beach residents are an active bunch, drawn outside by the spectacular weather and the general sense of goodwill and community that permeates life in this picturesque beach town. The Rosemary Beach Racquet Club is a go-to for tennis players. Eight clay courts are in tip-top shape and four of them are lighted for evening play. The friendly staff is always on hand to instruct, recommend new equipment and outfit you in the latest tennis fashions. 


One needn’t be a visitor to Rosemary Beach to avail themselves of the glorious spa at the Forbes Four-Star and AAA-Four Diamond experience at The Pearl Hotel. Inside this turreted masterpiece, adorned with crisp black-and-white striped awnings and sunny terraces, the Spa Pearl is a sophisticated oasis of indulgence offering signature treatments utilizing the healing powers of the pearl gemstone in private rooms. 


After your facial or massage, retreat to the glistening rooftop pool, adjacent to the spa. Sit awhile at the rooftop bar, with its amazing views of the Gulf. Downstairs, the hallmark restaurant, Havana Beach Bar & Grill, offers delectable dining in a Hemingway-esque, laid-back style. Stop by for live music and dinner on select nights in the main dining room, a cocktail on the veranda overlooking the Gulf and Main Street or a glass of wine in the chic lounge – this is Rosemary Beach’s most sophisticated and alluring gathering place.
