In the north of Florida, the Miracle Strip offers one of the most beautiful beaches in the state, and perhaps the whole country. Between Pensacola and Panama City, beaches are lined up from west to east, there is Perdido Beach (very quiet), Quietwater Beach, Navarre Beach, Fort Walton Beach (for water sports), Destin Beach (swimming and fishing in high sea), Grayton Beach (behind the dunes, perhaps one of the most beautiful beaches of the United States), Santa Rosa Beach (peaceful), Panama City Beach (very lively) and Saint Andrews Beach. All are covered by sand composed of 90% quartz, a mineral that gives the sand an almost blinding whiteness under the sun.
