Anybody on here know what kind of lows Navarre beach gets? Is there any benefit to all of the water?

Probably something between what you see in Pensacola and what you see in Destin.  Poke around on this map for the time frame you prefer and check the average and record lows on each of the nodes close by: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1QCS-fTHGPmghnQJ7Q1phu7gSXSD6Rtxq&ll=30.259765833774892%2C-86.97146200703936&z=10

based on Penacola, Navarre beach is 9b ish. All I saw there were sabals, phoenix, and butia. Wonder about things like arenga, beccariophoenix, queens. Bizmarkia. Too sandy? Or I didnt look hard enough.

The 30-year averages for Pensacola is 24F and Destin has averaged 25F with 24 years of data available.  The issue I would see with Beccariophoenix is the temperatures between 19-21F in 2014 and 2015.  There are specimens of the others mentioned that have survived temperatures in this range, so they aren't out of the question.  @JLM, @Matthew92 and @Estlander could probably point you in the right direction as far as seeing Queen palms and others of interest in the region.  My work doesn't usually take me to the Panhandle, so my knowledge of palms in that area is limited.

If you are looking at the barrier island then Queens will definitely work. There are two mature Queens on Pensacola Beach that have been there for a while, although they dont fruit because they get hurricane cuts every year. The city of Navarre itself might be able to support a Queen, but once you reach Holley it will be on extremely barrowed time. The Gulf Breeze area has some Queens, Gulf Breeze is in between Downtown Pensacola and Pensacola Beach.  Pensacola's Scenic Hwy seems to have some sort of microclimate, there are some protected roebeleniis there. Otherwise, i could see the whole barrier island from Fort Pickens to East Pass being near or just into 9b. Navarre itself is probably a lower end 9a. Navarre Beach is nothing but sand as its on the barrier island.
