We liked that we were able to stay right on the beach at one of the condominiums. The accessibility was nice. The water was beautiful and we enjoyed our week there. It amazed me though that people trash up the beach so much. There was some attempt to keep the area clean but overall lots of trash such as lost flip flops, smashed hats, chairs and tents, cans, cigarette butts, flotation devices etc. We might see that any where though. Throughout the week, the crowd was more family oriented but on the week end the beach-goers were younger and all that entails. Even though we loved the sand and the water, I will probably go a little more towards Destin area next time.
