Rosemary Beach, established in 1995, was named for the wild rosemary growing lushly on the dunes. With calm gulf waters, soothing rays of sunshine and silky sand beaches, it is a great place to unwind and soak up the scenery. Rosemary Beach’s unique architecture includes Dutch and West Indies-inspired homes and a Town Center brimming with shops and restaurants. Building palettes run to colors found in nature-mostly shades of rust, tan, green and brown, with Bermuda shutters, wide second floor porches, and arched garage doors. Footpaths and boardwalks throughout town lead to large decks over the dunes and to the beach below. The result is something completely different, classical, and inspiring.
