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.

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.
