Explore Destin-Fort Walton Beach
Destin-Fort Walton Beach is a natural playground for water adventurers. The emerald waters and pristine white sands are a highlight for travelers who consider vacation synonymous with beautiful beaches.
There’s so much to explore―swimming, snorkeling, SNUBA and paddleboarding, in or on the water. Rent a pontoon boat you can captain yourself, or catch a ride on a charter boat, many of which are great for families with young children.
Beachgoers can lay out on the sand, letting time slip away and break up their days on the boardwalks. Stroll down Destin’s HarborWalk Village and savor plates of Gulf-to-Table seafood served at restaurants just steps away from the fishing boats that just pulled them from the water.
No matter what time of year you visit, Destin-Fort Walton Beach has something for everyone. What will you do in Destin-Fort Walton Beach?
