The newest addition to the WaterColor Crossings, a local favorite and 30A hot spot – The Perfect Pig opening up at a leisurely 8 AM and offering some of the most indulgent southern coastal comforts 7 days a week. If we had to choose (but don’t make us choose) we’d order the House Made Quiche, every time!

Ride off Your Breakfast

Considering how close you are to all of the amenities in WaterColor we suggest an early afternoon bike ride through the 499-acre community to absorb the incredible architecture placed thoughtfully around hiking and biking trails for those looking to create their own adventures with bridges and lakes guiding you on to discover the local natural habitats of Northwest Florida. Stop for a water break at The Boathouse Paddle Club and test your skills on a stand-up paddle board, canoe, or kayak. What fun! You won’t soon forget the exhilarating experience of paddling along Western Lake, a unique coastal dune lake, and watching from the water as the life on land continues to buzz.

Fun in the Sun!

Nothing compares, a day at the beach just can’t be beat! Grab your surf boards and beach towels and settle in, we know you’ll be here for a while. Reserve a beach chair setup for the most enjoyable day, with access to shade by way of your umbrella and a standard set of 2 chairs you can get comfortable watching the kids jump the waves as they lap the shore or simply recline and relax.

Sunset on the Veranda  

End the day with the best view of the sunset in WaterColor! Pick a table on the veranda and order your favorite libation. Cheers to a day of experiences that won’t soon be forgotten. Sandy shoes on the deck and half empty sunscreen bottles. You’ve quite an appetite after a day of Florida fun all within the charming community of WaterColor. Our day would be complete with Sweet Tea Chicken and Carolina Pimento Cheese complementing Gulf Oysters in the raw. Indulge in “WaterColor Casual” at FOOW formerly Fish Out of Water and watch the sun lower into the gulf, spreading like fire across the horizon and then disappearing into the night.
