Whatever you decide to do, the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast are less than 1 mile from the Laguna Haven community. The Emerald Coast offers approximately 80 miles of pristine white-sand beaches stretching along the Gulf of Mexico. The legendary pure white sand is attributed to quartz crystals washing down from the Appalachian quartz and reflects the sunlight through the surf, giving the water its beautiful emerald-green color.
