snorkeling

I went here to snorkel but due to the water not being all that clear I found it hard to find something to look at. Still nice place to go and have some fun.

Came here with new friends to see the sunrise before leaving Destin. Amazing. So many dolphins. Calm like a lagoon. Will definitely bring children back to play on this beach. There is a foot shower, but no bathrooms, and the parking is minimal and on the street. Get here early.

Each time I've been to the jetty, I see something new! They've recently dropped a statue of an angel in about 20-25ft of water next to the jetty. You need to look for her or you won't find her!

very relaxing and nice place to catch some sun. If you can rent a boat and go out on the water even better

Slippery, but well worth the walk for a great view any time of day! We went at sunset and got some amazing family photos while we visited

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.
