Pelican Beach = major crowds?

We were considering staying at Pelican Beach Resort, but from what I gather, the beach is very crowded in the summmer.

What is a comparable place to stay...Jade East? I want to stay in that vicinity of Destin.

Pelican Beach is very crowded. The beach in front of the resort has them packed 5-6 deep. Jade East is much nicer and you won't have any issues with getting a great view of the beach from your chair. Breakers East is also nice and just east of Jade East. They were replacing the pool last March so you might want to call them to see what the pool status is.

We have stayed at Jade East many times. Even in July and August there is plenty of room at the beach.
