Reasons We Love Frangista Beach

More than Just a Beach

Frangista Beach has become one of the most prestigious treasures to be settled along Scenic Gulf Drive in Miramar Beach. This sought after residential community made national news when first created back in 2000 with a Master Plan Development that was so stunning it was featured in Coastal Living Magazine and televised on HGTV.  Although there are many reasons to love Frangista Beach, we narrowed the list to the following five:

1. AWESOME LOCATION - Located just east of Holiday Road in Miramar Beach this upscale exciting enclave on the glistening gulf has a private gated beach access with a wonderful mix of residential properties. You know when you have arrived at Frangista Beach since a long row of towering palms lines marks the spot along Scenic Gulf Drive that parallels the jewel toned waters. It is an awesome location with popular gulf front restaurants and fun beach bars just minutes away. Ocean Reef Resorts guests receive special discounts at nearby Seascape for championship golf or professional tennis. Grand Boulevard and Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin are also close by with fine restaurants, lively bars, specialty boutiques, seasonal festivals and free musical concerts. Frangista Beach is equidistant from all the action in Destin and the picturesque coastal villages along Scenic 30A in South Walton.

Walking Frangista Beach

2. PEDESTRIAN FRIENDLY - Frangista Beach’s fantastic location could define the phrase “leisurely stroll” since it is halfway between the popular Pompano Joe's restaurant and The Whale's Tail, both within short walking distance right down the beach from many of our vacation homes. The glorious gulf is within easy walking distance of all of our vacation rental properties. It is also a leisurely stroll away from the Emerald Coast Wine Cellars for getting a bottle of vino, a Bad Ass Coffee Shop for a nice latte, a Dairy Queen for a delicious chocolate dipped cone and an Alvin’s Island Beach Shop to get fun beach toys.

Frangista Community Pool

3. AMAZING COMMUNITY POOL - Besides the glorious gulf, Frangista Beach has a lushly landscaped watery tropical oasis that is centrally located and features a private gated fresh water community pool. This serene secluded open courtyard area is embraced by a lovely patio courtyard that is decorated by stately columned arbors and includes full restroom facilities with showers. It is like its own intimate private paradise in the center of Frangista Beach.

These beachfront properties represent the “cream of the cream” at Frangista Beach! These gorgeous beach homes have between three to five bedrooms with the ability to sleep 10 to 18 guests. Two of these properties sit side by side (Port Royal) with five bedrooms in each with the ability to accommodate up to 24 happy beachgoers making it a perfect rendezvous for a fun big beach reunion. All of them are three stories tall with plenty of separate space for everyone. They feature wide breezy balconies overlooking the emerald toned gulf and the private sugar white beach beside it. Each one of them also has a plunge pool on the beachfront balcony for freshwater refreshment.

5. THE BEAUTIFUL BEACH - The star of the show is the beautiful beach which sits nestled beside this residential enclave. The crystalline white ribbon of sugary shore overlooks the glistening gulf waters that sparkle in brilliant emerald toned colors.  The jewel toned waters are so luminescent they often seem to glow.
