Powdery-Soft, White Quartz Sand

This sand consists of the smallest quartz particles from a process involving the Appalachian Mountains and the Apalachicola River 20,000 years ago! Sand so soft it squeaks when you walk on it! Come experience the softest sand you’ll ever feel between your toes.

This was our 3rd stay at Waterscape and A325 is our favorite! I would absolutely rent this unit again. The layout with 2 king suites and bunk area were perfect for our family. The decor and updates to the unit were top notch. Kendra hit the nail on the head! One night returning from dinner my 2 year old said “yay we’re home!” The amenities Waterscape offers are the best for our young daughters. They were always kept busy between the beach, splash pad, 2 pools and lazy river. We also enjoyed fireworks over the boardwalk right from the condo balcony. Perfect quiet location. Looking forward to renting again!
