Destin Travel Guide, Florida

Destin is situated on the Emerald Coast together with Fort Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island. Destin is more popular than the second and it is situated west of it.

Being part of the Emerald coast you can expect as the name suggests sparkling beaches with emerald like clear waters, an area offering lots of possibilities for outdoor activities like fishing of all types, sailing, windsurfing, diving and many other water based activities and more as you can even play golf here and not just any golf but the best on year round golf courses. But guess which is the most popular? You guessed right, fishing. Destin has the largest fishing fleet in the state. You will see plenty of deep sea fishing charter boats but you can even rent a boat or yacht and choose to fish in deep or shallow waters you can get expert advice from the guides who can help you get a good catch.

Besides fishing beaches are the key attraction with powder like sand and beautiful waters, this place has attracted visitors and holidaymakers from all over the country and beyond.

You can sign up for dolphin excursions and parasailing at the Destin Bridge and it is still here that you can rent jet skis. Parasailing will offer you great views of the whole region

It has developed fast into a very popular holiday destination and it is still developing, much to the regret of those who want to have more space on the beach. The downside of this development is that the space for public beaches keep diminishing so you can expect huge crowds cramming in a small space especially in summer, but you can taste paradise at the full if you come in spring or autumn, the perfect season for coming to Destin. Or just got to Fort Walton Beach which is more low key. Prices drop in spring and autumn and you will be able to choose a type of accommodation that you might not afford in summer.

Anyway, any time you come you are to find all types of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets. Crowded periods like summer require booking in advance. Luxurious hotels, motels, campsites are filling up the beach and they have the capacity to host thousands of tourists. Being among America’s top beach destinations, Destin is sought by many tourists who want to spend their holiday in a great vacation spot and in a superb romantic atmosphere, a place that offers them all: great views, great activities, great food and great accommodation.

Who wouldn’t want to live here, but if you can’t afford it at least come to spend a few days in this paradise.
