Emerald Coast city of Destin, snuggled against the Gulf of Mexico in northwest Florida
Destin is located on Florida’s Emerald Coast, which gets its name from its beautiful, clear green water. Beaches here have extremely fine, soft sand, so if you’re a beach-walker or your kids enjoy building sand castles, this could be a great destination for you.
Florida's Emerald Coast is the 60 miles of snow-white beaches and emerald-blue waters. The Emerald Coast goes from Destin (served by the Emerald Coast/Fort Walton Airport-VPS) to the East on historic route 30A which extends to Rosemary Beach (served by the Panama City Airport - ECP)
Destin by the numbers
Destin is known for its Gulf of Mexico beaches and many golf courses, as well as the Destin Harbor Boardwalk. Nature trails pass through the dunes of Henderson Beach State Park in the south, where the coastline is dotted with pine and oak trees sheltering wildlife. To the west are the tall slides, waterfalls and pools of Big Kahuna’s water park.
