this is a very walk able beach unlike some of Destin beaches. You can go to the point of the marina entrance and catch an awesome sunset or see the boats traveling in and out of the Bay. Nice white sand slightly packed down to make it nice to walk on.

How can you beat this beach? I challenge you. Been to most "white sand beaches" around the world and this is top 5, without peer!

Not sure why this picture is the lead for reviews of this stretch of beach. It was taken years ago right after a hurricane. The whole beach has been rebuilt and is now a wide, pristine, beautiful place, maybe the most beautiful stretch of beach in Destin.

Take the kids and their snorkels and let them enjoy all the tiny fishes, and fun sea life on our jetty...the beach is a great place to watch the boats and sea doos going in and out, and also a nice place to launch your sea doo. It is a little hike but well worth it, if you want to... More

My hubby and I were able to get away for a long weekend without the children, which hasn't happened in the 12 years since they've been with us. We stayed at the Jetty East Condos, and we loved the easy beach access. The beach was uncrowded and had lots of shells that we kept saying the kids would love. It... More

This is a beautiful place to snorkel and take young children! The inlet is calm and has a quiet secluded feel.

I gave it a 3 star even though I didnt go, because I WANTED to go but its a long walk out over thick sugar sand, it was 105 heat index, and I would have had to haul fishing equip ect thru all that. Wish they could build a boardwalk out to it, because honestly it was the only area... More

feel like you're completely in another country around this location. With the rocks and the great water quality, it's very different than a typical beach location.feels like I'm in Mexico or the Caribbean around the jetties.the calm water of crab island is usually quite a treat, but obviously can change depending on time and weather conditions.also absolutely the very best...

The profile pic of Jetty East Beach was taken during beach restoration. It looks a million times better now. The hurricanes of 2003-2005 really took a toll on this beach, but it is back to prime. I've submitted a current picture. This is my favorite beach in the world.
