South Walton has 16 beach neighborhoods, each with its own sense of style.

But according to a recent article from FloridaRentals.com, one of them is among the top 11 popular small town destinations in Florida.

Miramar Beach was picked with other beach towns such as Cocoa Beach, St. Petersburg and Cape San Blas. Although they were not individually ranked from 1st to 11th, the winning towns were based on the last six months of traffic on the Florida Rentals website.

The website touts Miramar Beach’s “Old Florida” style mixed with “ultra-modern” amenities as a perfect place to get away.

“Scenic beach roads, quaint surf shops with chill owners, and gorgeous beachfront rentals,” the article reads. “Search for a place with panoramic views, you’ll want them of the sugar white sands and friendly families out on the water.”

David Demarest, director of communications for South Walton Tourist Development Council, said he’s not surprised when Miramar Beach receives any accolades.

“South Walton in general has such a diverse offering. Each community brings something different to the table,” he said. “Miramar Beach is one of the most popular neighborhoods in South Walton based on the number of visitors. It’s a great family-friendly destination and for conventions and businesses. There’s so many different styles of accommodations — town homes, beach houses, condos, etc.”

Miramar Beach offers both quiet, laid-back vacation options as well as action-filled stays, according to Demarest. Shopping abounds as well.

“Visitors are going to the beach,” Demarest said. “But they’re also building in the time to go shopping at Silver Sands Premium Outlets or Grand Boulevard.

“It’s all part of what makes an ideal vacation.”
