Here at Navarre Beach, there is hardly any light pollution. With the closest major city miles away, and only a handful of buildings near the beach, the night sky is as dark as can be, lending to near-perfect stargazing potential! To further increase your chances of a clear night, plan your stargazing session on a night with no moon.
