Rosemary Beach, designed by Duany, Plater-Zyberk & Company, is a 105-acre master-planned community found along the east end of Scenic Highway 30A. Rosemary Beach is approximately 32 miles east of Destin and 18 miles west of Panama City Beach in the panhandle of Florida.
The architecture of Rosemary Beach is based upon the Caribbean models found in St. Augustine and the Islands. There are 12 building types which establish the character of each individual neighborhood, while still catering to each individual owner's taste. Homes are finished with wood siding, cedar shingles or masonry stucco and metal or cedar shake roofs.
The community was designed with details such as a rear alley system so that cars can be parked in garages that are not visible from the street, in hopes of encouraging pedestrian traffic, community interaction, and build relationships between neighbors.
Rosemary Beach is a self-contained community built around a Town Center, which is no more than a five-minute walk from anywhere in the community. Each neighborhood in Rosemary Beach is interconnected by a network of pedestrian pathways and boardwalks that lead to the common green areas, the beach, Town Square, the Racquet Club, 4 swimming pools, and other incredible amenities.
Rosemary Beach features 4 pools located throughout the community. The Sky Pool and Cabana Pool are both located on the north side of Scenic Hwy 30A while the Coquina Pool and Barbados Pool are located on the south side of Scenic Hwy 30A.
Common green areas can be found throughout Rosemary Beach. These include numerous parks; the Western and Eastern Greens, Abaco Square and Playground Park on the south side of 30A and West and East Long Green Parks, Atticus Park, Fountain Park, Hedge Long Park, Wiggle Park, East and West Kingston Parks, St. Augustine Park, Kingsbridge Park, and Butterfly Park.
Rosemary Beach is also home to some of 30A's dining hot spots - La Crema Tapas, Restaurant Paradis, Wild Olives Market, and Summer Kitchen Cafe.
