People travel from every corner of the country to enjoy the fresh salty air, soft sandy beaches, and cool, emerald waters of Rosemary Beach® on vacation. When planning vacation activities, deciding how to spend the morning is easy to overlook. With the beautiful scenery in Rosemary Beach®, waking up early to enjoy it is always the best plan.
See the Sunrise
Rosemary Beach® is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and there isn’t a better way to start the day than to view the sunrise over them. Grab a blanket, a cup of coffee, and your camera and head to the beach for a spectacular, colorful view.
Enjoy a Book and a Cup of Coffee
If you’re wondering where to get the coffee to take to the beach, Amavida Coffee is a local Rosemary Beach® favorite. Flavorful blends from Ecuador, Honduras, and Bolivia are just a few of the options to choose from. Grab your favorite book and relax with a fresh cup of Amavida coffee to start the day. Iced lattes are a favorite during the summer.
Riding bikes is a favorite family pastime in Rosemary Beach® and is the perfect way to start the day. Bamboo Bicycle Company is conveniently located in the center of Rosemary Beach® and has bikes for all ages to ride around town. Ride up and down the cobblestone streets and wooden boardwalks in search of your favorite breakfast spot.
Getting breakfast is a fun opportunity to scope out what restaurants Rosemary Beach® has to offer and what’s on the menu. Summer Kitchen Café and Cowgirl Kitchen offer a multitude of breakfast options such as waffles, eggs, and omelets to enjoy.
Rosemary Beach® is paradise for tennis lovers who enjoy starting the day with a game. The Rosemary Beach Racquet Club offers tennis facilities, instruction options, and new equipment to maintain an active lifestyle on vacation. With eight clay courts in great condition and all the supplies needed to play, is there a better way to spend the morning?
Notice the Architecture
With influences from the West Indies and the Dutch, the Rosemary Beach® style feels as if it’s pulled straight from a European village. Native plants complement white walls, earthy tones, striking curves and lush surroundings. Courtyards abound and each direction offers a unique view. Even the roofs are a sight to see.
Yoga at the Beach
For beginner or seasoned yogis, Rosemary Beach® is an ideal location for peace and quiet. Finding a location on the beach to spend time alone practicing yoga is the best anti-stress remedy to start the day. If you prefer a group setting, stop in for a class at the Rosemary Beach Fitness Center.
Relax on the Porch
One of the best parts of every Rosemary Beach® home is the porch. After all, there isn’t a better place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee, relax and enjoy the view. Sometimes the most relaxing part of a vacation is doing nothing but taking the time to observe and appreciate the beauty in the community you’re visiting. Wake up, grab a cup of coffee, and lounge outside; enjoy the warm Florida breeze.
Shop the Farmer’s Market
The 30A Farmers Market takes over the East Long Green every Sunday from 9 am – 1 pm (and every Thursday during the summer season) with vendors selling fresh fruits, vegetables, jellies, desserts, flowers and more. Go early for the best selection and be sure to get enough for the whole family.
Wander Around Town
Meander through the streets of Rosemary Beach®, discovering nature, architecture and shady spots to relax around every turn. You’ll notice community green spaces tucked between houses, park benches to people-watch, family photo ops and places for making memories. Be sure to let the kids make a wish at the fountain in Barrett Square.
Whether you’re enjoying the morning alone, with family, being active or relaxing outside, there are a myriad of options to choose how to begin the day. So wake up, slip on your sandals, and decide how to start your day in Rosemary Beach®.
