Bicycling in Destin

I've lived in California and loved going to the boardwalks where people roller skate and ride cruiser bikes up and down the beach; however, I can't seem to find anything similar in my Destin searches so far. I see there is Harbor "Walk" Village, but can you also ride bicycles there or are there any other boardwalks that allow this?

There are bicycle paths and more bicycle riding at Seaside and in that area.

Miles of bike paths.

Bicycling thru the Seaside community.

You should check that out.

Harborwalk is not a really long extensive area.... And, will be packed with pedestrians when busy.

I am not sure if one rides on the soft sands on this area of the Panhandle or not.

I don't think it is like the packed sands you are familiar with out in CA.

We rode on the Mission Beach Boardwalk there, which was a paved boardwalk, and definitely not on the sand (that sounds like hard work!). So I'm looking for something similar to this: a-zsandiegobeaches.com/images/beaches_photo_…

I love to ride my bike on the beach. Unfortunately, you can't do it here- the sand is too soft.

When I do ride around the Harbor area, security guards always approach me to "walk" my bike. My usual ride is about a 10 mile round trip along the bay on a nice path that goes by several parks to the bridge and back to my house. Very few other cyclists.

There is a very nice rideable path in Crystal Beach from one end all the way down through Miramar Beach.

30-A has a great path, it can be very congested with pedestrians too. The speed bikers take to the road and upset the vehicular traffic, a constant battle.

And there is a terrific ride in Navarre all the way to Pensacola Beach that is very scenic.
