Inviting sugar sand beaches and shining turquoise waters along with ample opportunities for activities, dining and shopping make the East Destin Beaches a popular destination among visitors to Northwest Florida. Including the beautiful Crystal Beach community with its cheerful coastal cottages painted in a sunny palette, the East Destin Beaches offer differing residential options from established efficiency condominiums to new luxury developments like 1900 Ninety Eight to private beach homes of all sizes. Henderson Beach State Park with over 6,000 feet of undeveloped coastline is a favorite spot to enjoy the area’s natural beauty with nature trails, campsites, pavilions and a playground. Local seafood restaurants serve up fresh gulf seafood, many located directly on the beach, and the nearby Destin Commons lifestyle center offers the latest trends in shopping along with bowling, play areas and events.
