Re: The water doesn't look good

Thank you so much for the replies! I wish we knew why the water clarity has changed and if anything could be done about it. I also love NB for many reasons, but I miss the beautiful water.

The water doesn't look good

On the beach cam it looks like the water is very black and yucky. Is that actually the case? We are supposed to check in this Saturday for a week and are dreading another visit with yucky water. When we started vacationing in NB in 1992, the water was beautiful, but no matter what time of year we go...

So...has Red Tide arrived?

Just watched a news clip filmed on Navarre Beach in which the newscaster said she was coughing...irritant in the air...speculated it was Red Tide. Any confirmation? I hope not. We are supposed to arrive Saturday for a week's vacation. :( Still...very relieved that things look OK on the HD cam... Any...

Re: BBQ on the Island....

Just wondering what happened to this restaurant? We ate there when we were here in June and really liked it. Are they closed for the season or permanently?

Re: What is causing the brown water?

OK thanks so much! Even though we have been vacationing here for 20 years I am still learning about the beach! :)

What is causing the brown water?

We arrived Saturday and are puzzled by the brown water. It does not appear to be June grass but rather just dirt/sand. Is this a holdover from the recent hurricane that passed through? How long should we expect it to last? Thank you!

Re: Recycling at Navarre Beach?

Thank you, AngelGirl. I had seen that page. I guess I am in a property that does not collect recycling and I am not inclined to drive that far to take my recycling (on vacation). There used to be big bins down by the Tom Thumb that I used. Still wondering why those are not available anymore. They ma...

Recycling at Navarre Beach?

I have searched the forums here and online and it looks like there is no longer any place to take recyclables at the beach. Years ago there were collection places but it looks like no more. It breaks my heart to throw away all this aluminum and plastic. Curious why recycling drop-offs at the beach w...

Re: DOES NAVARRE WANT THE ORIGINAL SIGN BACK?

I did it! The whole reason I came to Navarre Beach back in 1992 was because of the slogan "Florida's Best Kept Secret" which I read in a Florida travel guide. My husband and I booked a week there at the old Holiday Inn and have been coming back ever since. (Although not staying in the Holiday Inn ob...

Leave no trace, bigger crowds?

Good morning! Been here since last Saturday and things seem different than our last visit. (We usually visit in October but didn't get to come last year.) First of all the leave no trace ordinance seems to be ignored. We are at Emerald Surf and the beach has definitely not been cleared at night. Sec...

Re: Biting flies at the beach?

So yesterday the wind had shifted to the south again and NO flies. A wonderful day to sit at the beach unmolested. All in all there were only 3 in 9 days that were affected by flies. Not too bad really, for fly season. We noticed another oddity on Saturday, however (a fly day). There seemed to be NO...

Re: Biting flies at the beach?

Day before yesterday the wind had shifted (the beach flags pointed inland) and there were absolutely NO flies at the beach. Not one. It was awesome. Then yesterday the flags pointed out to sea again and the flies were back. The helpful clerk at Tom Thumb directed us to the Deep Woods Off spray and t...

Re: Biting flies at the beach?

Thank you so much for all the information. I guess it's always something: algae, jellyfish, hurricanes or flies. Navarre is still my favorite place on earth. The beautiful water and empty beaches this week compensate for the flies (which are not a problem when walking, only sitting). Thanks again fo...

Biting flies at the beach?

We have been here a few days and just today noticed biting flies which are making it next to impossible to sit on the beach. Just wondering where did they come from? Why are they worse at some times than at others? Is there anything that repels them effectively? Or someplace that is better (like the...
