Navarre Pier/Lagerheads on the Gulf
There is always one court open for pick-up volleyball. Volleyballs are available for sign out at the gift shop. There are occasional tournaments, but a court is always left open for visitors and locals to use.
League play is from 6 p.m. until 11 p.m. Monday thru Thursday. Every other Friday evening and every other Sunday are open tournaments.
Most days courts are open during the day and volleyballs are loaned to those who want to play.
Schedules are posted at the Pagoda Bar which

Navarre Beach is has undergone “beach restoration.” One benefit of beach restoration is the additional of more shells than usual. Have fun shelling!
