The view and beach here are unbeatable! I will definitely be staying here again! Loved watching the boats come and go from the harbor. We could also see the fireworks from our balcony!

This place used to be great but ever since the oil spill it hasn't been the same. It is way overcrowded and there is just less and less beach to enjoy.

Beautiful calm water. Never to crowded and a great place for snorkeling and swimming especially if you have little ones.

Its a beach... what can i say? Ok.. i usually stay a half mile east of this beach but i walk thru this part everyday on my walk to the jetty and its usually pretty crowded. Other than that its your typical destin beach. Great sand and great water!

Great place for a vaction with kids and the ocean is breathtaking. All the stores that u would need to by food from are all relatively close to the condo. For fun there is also big kahuna right down the street So far everything has been great

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.
