Welcome to the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast. The Destin area features over 24 miles of dazzling pure white sandy beaches.
The white sand that comprises our shores is actually sculpted from Appalachian quartz over thousands of years, providing a pristine and unique canvas where you can view a remarkable array of aquatic life as you stroll along the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
The shores along the Emerald Coast are consistently ranked as some of America’s best beaches by publications like Parents Magazine, MSNTravel and many others including Southern Living which has ranked Destin as the #1 “Family Destination” and the “Best Beach in the South.”
Come see why our sunsets are considered legendary…and while a picture is worth a thousand words, being here is the only way to get a true sense of our local treasures.
