Henderson Beach is a great place to take the family! It is really clean and safe. My grandchildren love to go there!

“Great place to get away...”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

Leave the "tourist crowds" behind...pay the small admission fee and spend the day in a relaxed area enjoying the sun,sand and water.

“clean dunes”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

You are not allowed to walk around in the dunes because they are protected, but they make a wonderful background for beautiful beach pictures.

“It's the way it used to be...”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Perfectly preserved with the dunes, white sand beaches and water the color of aqua. If you're looking to see an unadulterated beach in Destin this is the place to go BUT be aware that just down the road (east of Henderson) there are plenty of public beaches where you do not have to pay a fee to enjoy the beach. It's true that Henderson has the best preserved environment but if you are looking for free parking, washrooms and beach access there are many free access areas on old Scenic 98 which runs along the beach (as opposed to Business 98).

“What a gorgeous park.”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

Very clean restrooms. The water is so clear you can see your feet when neck deep. The sand is so clean it squeeks when you walk on it.
