Why Destin-Fort Walton Beach?
Destin-Fort Walton Beach is surrounded by water–making it the easiest place to try a new water adventure. We have the fastest access to deep sea fishing in Florida. Our sand is made out of quartz–making it bright white and super soft. We have dolphins, sea turtles and a ton of other marine life that will make your kids (and you) squeal with delight. And if you want even more reasons to choose Destin-Fort Walton Beach, chat with a Scout, our local experts on everything to see, do and discover in the destination.
