The Boardwalk is just a so so place, ok if you are tired of sitting on the beach, or if it is raining, which is was when we went. Had dinner at The Black Pearl, on the 4:00 - 6:00 pm special. I had grilled shrimp and while they tasted pretty good, they were very small. Husband has a trio... More

Paying the $2 to walk on the boardwalk was worth it! You get an amazing view! But walking around in the shops/ resteraunt area is a waste of time. It's smelly, there is no ventilation, and it consists of only 4 resteraunts and 2 shops.

Well who would've thought but the little store that sold Gelato, had awesome ham and cheese breakfast croissants, and coffee drinks of all kinds.. The lady was so nice and helpful. Will definitely go get some Gelato tomorrow.

There were bad rip currents this particular day and the lifeguards were swarming the beach - whistles blowing. We were only allowed to swim... More

The rental company on the beach that rents the chairs and umbrellas employ the rudest people. My husband and I were sitting under one of the umbrellas…we had been for hours, we were unaware that they were rentals due to the fact there were NO signs saying so. Some “employee” walked up to us and asked us if we wanted... More

Very welcome change from the typical mall shopping experiences. Prices seemed decent for a tourist type area. The pier there also was a welcome adventure also. Was nice to walk off the meal and visit with the fisherman.

The little shops on the boardwalk were relatively comparative in prices to the other stores in Destin. The restaurants are okay, and it was fun to walk on the pier ($2 per person) to see the dolphins and people fishing.

We spent time here for dinner and also just hanging out. The shops are great and the atmosphere is awesome. Right on the beach and lots going on there to keep you entertained. We really enjoyed hanging out here.

We went to the beach. Love the play area for the kids and the outside giftshop. If you forgot to stop and walmart like we did, don't worry they had everything there at the giftshop lol
