Destin Florida Beaches
Destin Harbor entrance
Destin Fla Wanderer (www.destin-fla-wanderer.com) tells you all you need to know about Destin, its incredible white sand beaches, its attractions, its things to do and see, and where to stay when you visit.
Destin is the 'luckiest fishing village in the world' and its location on the Gulf of Mexico in the Florida panhandle makes it so. Destin harbor sits on the entrance of Choctawhatchee bay and the Gulf. Fishing boats can take either route so you have a choice of salt, or fresh, water fishes to eat at the end of the trip.
For most visitors, it's the white sand beaches that keep them coming back. Miles and miles of sugary-white sand lapped by warm, emerald waters and backed by lush green golf courses makes this the perfect spot for families, March-break students, and golfers -- as well as anglers.
And there's plenty to see and do in Destin for those days the beach doesn't appeal. From the amazing Eglin Air Force Museum, the Big Kahuna Waterpark, Gulfarium with its dolphins, dolphin and sunset cruises, to the quiet, stately, Wesley House and Eden Gardens, there's something for everyone.
And for those who like nature, there are National and State parks nearby for hiking, cycling and canoeing -- getting close to wild Florida. For Birders, there are a number of stops on the Florida Birding Trail around Destin.
