Florida Beach Life

Explore the Shore in South Walton

Renowned for its brilliant sugar sand beaches and warm, almost unbelievably turquoise blue waters of the Gulf, Florida’s Emerald Coast is the perfect place to soak up some sun, relax by the shore, or enjoy a leisurely afternoon under the refreshing shade of a beach umbrella. 


All guests of The Pearl Hotel are able to relax on the private Florida beach with complimentary beach setups.  Each setup includes two canvas chairs and a spacious umbrella for shade. No reservations are needed; it's first-come, first-served, weather permitting.  Look for the distinctive black and white striped umbrellas that match the awnings on our hotel and check-in with our beach attendants to enjoy complimentary sunscreen, towels, water, and beach games.



High Season:  9 AM - 5 PM, Daily


Low Season:  9 AM - 4 PM, Daily


•While we do not reserve beach setups ahead of time, rest assured that we have enough setups for all of our guests.


•If you would like to sit on the front row, we recommend arriving to the beach earlier in the morning. If you look forward to sleeping in, do not worry, our chairs are staggered, so you’ll be able to see the
water no matter where you are placed.


•To accommodate the seating preferences of all of our guests, we ask that you do not “hold” chairs. If you need to leave your beach setup, please take your items with you. We’ll be happy to assist you with a
new setup when you return.


•Local Walton County regulations prevent us from serving alcoholic beverages and food on the beach. For your convenience, we offer Beach Bites as a to-go option. Orders may be placed through your
in-room iPad or by calling (850) 588-2882.


•For your safety, please follow the Beach Flag Warning System signaled at each beach access point.
