Northwest Florida’s emerald waves and sugar white sands landed several top spots on TripAdvisor’s 2019 Travelers Choice 25 Best Beaches in the Country list.

Panama City Beach earned the best spot at No. 3, Pensacola Beach was awarded No. 5 and Navarre Beach secured No. 12.

TripAdvisor is the world’s leading and largest travel site. Each year they conduct a series of Travelers Choice awards.

The winners are determined based on the quality and quantity of traveler reviews and ratings made over a yearlong period on TripAdvisor.

Of this year’s best beaches, 40 percent are in Florida and 30 percent are in Hawaii — the leading beach destination states.

The site lists notable comments for each beach. Panama City Beach — “Beautiful white sand that looks like snow, but isn’t cold” and “The most beautiful beach in the world.” Pensacola Beach — “White sand and clean bathrooms” and “Awesome atmosphere.”

Navarre Beach — “Heaven on Earth” and “One of the best well-kept vacation secrets in the U.S.”
