Pristine beaches and sugar-white sand in a coastal fishing oasis
Destin is a technicolor dream of emerald waters, turquoise skies, and vibrant green palm trees. In fact, the vivid blue-green water gives the area its Emerald Coast nickname. This one-time fishing village may have humble beginnings, but you would never know it from the look of things today. This tropical oasis is perched on a swath of land separating the Gulf of Mexico from the Choctawhatchee Bay. It is renowned for its pristine beaches, gorgeous golf courses, and spectacular real estate.


  • Powdery white sand
  • Stunning custom estates
  • Panoramic peninsula views
  • Exquisite cuisine and tony boutiques


Cities often claim to have it all, but in the case of Destin, the declaration is justified — this breezy, balmy locale is brimming with glittering beaches, jewel-toned water, and first-class dining. Destin residents enjoy boating trips to Crab Island, indulging in the freshest seafood at world-class restaurants, and taking in glorious sunsets.

A perfect blend of fashionable events and unpretentious family activities, Destin is an ideal spot for a second home or vacation getaway. This hidden gem features the most lavish of restaurants, kitschy adventure parks, and, of course, Destin’s silky sand that attracts sunbathers and afternoon picnics. Saltwater fishing at Okaloosa Island Pier is a big draw for residents, as is swimming in the warm gulf waters.


The Creole influence of nearby Louisiana shines at Louisiana Lagniappe, a stylish waterfront spot with spectacular harbor views. Southern cuisine is at its best with standouts like the oyster's lagniappe, blackened redfish, and shrimp and grits. Marina Cafe enjoys the distinction of being Destin’s most frequent award-winner, and just one taste of the impeccably crafted dishes will prove the reputation is well-deserved. Stellar service and soft candlelight set the tone for excellence, while the global flavors, fresh seafood, and perfectly paired wine menu make this a local favorite.

The elegant dining room and chef-driven fare at Seagar’s Prime Steaks and Seafood are simply divine. This classic steakhouse features an exquisite wine list and delicacies like wagyu beef and caviar.

Perched on the shores of Destin Bay, HarborWalk Village is the city’s liveliest destination. Every week, fireworks light up the sky over the water while live music adds to the soundtrack of crashing waves and ocean breezes. Shops and cafes line the walkway, and adventures await in the form of pirate-ship expeditions, glass-bottomed boats, and water sports.


The abundance of sunshine and rich emerald waters make Destin a prime destination for outdoor activities. The Regatta Bay Golf and Yacht Club and Kelly Plantation Golf Club has one of the state’s top-ranked courses, breathtaking scenery, and a golf academy, which makes this a paradise for avid golfers. Destin was made for boating, and marinas like Destin Marina cater to both seasoned boaters and nautical novices. Crab Island is a delightful daytime excursion where boaters can cruise to a sandbar, drop anchor, and lounge or splash in the clear water.

Visiting the beach is another time-honored Destin tradition, and Snorkel Beach is a prime spot. Stroll the gleaming coastline or dive in and watch the sea life at play. The crystal clear water makes snorkeling a dream, and this is another boater-friendly area — it’s even easier to boat over than to find a parking space. Waterslides, lazy rivers, and more than 40 rides and attractions make Big Kahuna’s Water and Adventure Park a Destin icon, and families have been enjoying the fun since 1986.


Destin residents enjoy access to several excellent schools through the Okaloosa County School District, including:
