Destin rests on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Our miles and miles of glistening, powder-soft, white sand beaches are framed by the equally striking emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This collaboration has won the attention of travelers for years and inspired many awards. Destin’s beaches have been named “Number One Beach in the South” and one of the top five “Favorite Family Vacation Destinations” by the readers of Southern Living year after year. On our beaches, often referred to as the Emerald Coast along with neighboring Fort Walton Beach, people of all ages find themselves engaged in some of the simplest pleasures of searching for seashells, building sandcastles and watching the water for playful dolphins. Renew your senses and relax your mind at the beach.

If you seek more exciting activities and and want to explore more Destin, Florida attractions, you will find them here, too. Destin is home to the best water park in the south, Big Kahuna’s, as well as many other fun places to see and things to do. Fishing, boating, paddle boarding, wave running, parasailing and so much more await you. While most activities involve the water, we also have incredible land-lover activities, like one of the most popular ones to do while on vacation – shopping. Destin bursts with great opportunities. Let our Destin Gulf Coast Guide, as well as our vacation rental blog, show you the way. Visit our Destin vacation rentals for your place at the beach.
