Destin is known as the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village”, and with great fishing, comes a great harbor. We’ve always known that the harbor is a must-visit while on vacation in Destin, but now Coastal Living has let the world know by naming it one of America’s Best Harbors!

The Destin Harbor is an exciting place to visit while staying in an Emerald Coast condo or vacation home. Not sure where to eat? Stroll the harbor. Want to have some fun, but not sure where to start? Take a walk down through HarborWalk Village. Looking for a little nightlife? You get our point. The harbor is a one-stop shop for fun when you aren’t down on the beach.

While the restaurants, shopping and events along the harbor are great, the true reason to visit is to get a look at the heart of this little town along the beaches of Northwest Florida. This is where Destin began. Thanks is an easily accessible pass through to the Gulf waters and nearby deep water, fisherman have been bringing in the big catch for many years, drawing anglers and visitors to our area before the beautiful beaches did.

Love to fish and want to see what all the hype is about? Just call any of the numerous fishing boat captains who park their vessels in the Destin Harbor and gear up for an adventure on the water.
