Welcome to Destin Florida!
Destin Florida is often referred to as the jewel of the Emerald Coast due to the natural beauty of this magnificent stretch of coastline. The formerly sleepy little fishing village attracts national and even international attention for its powdery white beaches and amazing blue-green water. USA Today recently named Destin Florida as the winner of its reader's poll for the #1 beach in America. Regional publications including the Atlanta Journal and Southern Living have consistently placed Destin atop their annual rankings as the best beach, best family vacation destination and the top "drive to" vacation destination in the region.
Families choosing to visit the Destin area (including Sandestin, Fort Walton Beach and the communities on Highway 30-A) will find many attractions beyond the beautiful beaches to keep them coming back year after year. Whether its diving or snorkeling on the natural reefs, wrecks and barges in Destin's emerald green waters; testing the validity of Destin's "World' luckiest fishing village" moniker by chartering a boat from the state's largest fishing fleet or playing golf at one of the area's picturesque golf courses, visitors will find Destin to be a recreational paradise.
