I visited this beach because of the reviews stating it is a good location for snorkeling. The beach is not as clean as Crystal or Henderson beaches, and it is more crowded. Plus, numerous snorkeling tour groups came in, which meant it was much more difficult to snorkel comfortably. I was kicked with snorkelers' fins multiple times. There were more... More

The beach is breathtaking! Our chairs were set up every morning ready for our arrival. The water was clearer than it has ever been. Very little seaweed and the jellyfish stayed away this year!

We've stayed at the Jetty almost every year since 2000. It's like home away from home. This year the beach was so horribly managed it has us looking to stay elsewhere next year. The beach and the pool are flooded with non-Jetty East guests from all over the place. If you leave your spot for a bit there is a... More

The posted photo of the Jetty East Beach was a few years. The Holiday Isle Gulf side property owners, along with the city of Destin, paid to have sand literally blown back up on the beach from the Gulf of Mexico. The beautiful sugar white beach has been restored, but most properties decided to place a large burm between their... More

What happened? No beach. Steep drop for the kids in to the waves. I would not pay the prices they charge at these condos for the simple fact that the beach is packed full of people and no place to walk. Do not stay here.

Never crowded. Always nice. I find the condos around this area (Holiday Isle) are a better price than the newer ones further down plus the beach is never crowed.

This is a short beach in front of the condos which is great for me as I have to bring everything out. It is next to the Jetties and opens up wider. No crowds, white clean and room for fishermen also. Keep it under your hat!

We stayed at a friend's condo. We loved the location on the beach. There were chairs you could rent after you walked over the bridge to the beach. The pool was heated, and it was very large.

Perfect place to watch the boats come and go. Also, lovely sunsets over the bridge. White sand (of course). Fairly quiet location-many families were having picnics while watching the sunset.
