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.

To me this is not an attraction, it's a condo. We've been coming to Destin for over twenty years. We have tried a couple of other places, but always return to Jetty East. The people here are friendly. The site is impeccably clean. The beach is awesome. Pool is great. Good place to stay for any age group.

we went to this beacj with the children to snorkle. The beach is very nice and protected from the Wind because of the jetties but I'm glad we didn't pay a boat trip to snorkle there. There is nothing to see! It's still a perfect place to go with children because there are no waves.

I love the area (Holiday Isle). I love that you can see and walk to the jetties. Beautiful sunset. Very clean. Gated with security. Great swimming pool. My only complaint is the balconies. They are solid walls so you can't see the ocean while sitting inside your condo.

This part of the Destin area is nice now that the beaches are back. (Due to some very serious storms, the beach eroded and was practically non-existent). The sand is back and the dunes are fixed. The water is just a little prettier here because its shallow further out allowing for that emerald green to really show off. Its nice... More

Pretty spot to watch the big fishing boats coming and going. Sunset is breath-taking. No surf but quiet water. Good for young kids. Be careful if you dive off the jetty. When the current is going out you can be swept out to sea. But swimming is safe from the beach.

Beach was nice. Moderate walk from Public access point. Water was off while we were there. Murky, low visibility, dirty. But spoke to people that come every year and they say they had never seen it like this before. When the water is clear/ and at high tide this is the place to snorkel for free!!!!
