Back to the Beach in Destin Florida

Monday, October 16, 2017
This is our third visit, and still the best place to stay in Destin. Located on Florida’s Emerald Coast, which gets its name from its beautiful, clear green water. Beaches here have extremely fine, soft sand, so if you’re a beach-walker or your kids enjoy building sand castles, this could be a great family destination. 

Here are some tips for you all: 

  • If you come to Destin in March or April, keep in mind that it's high season — prices are higher, and it tends to be noisier and more crowded.
  • If you come in July - August the temperature is in high 90's.
  • Remember to wear comfortable footwear and clothing, keep yourself hydrated throughout the day, and use sunscreen.
  • If you want to avoid peak season, October and November are quieter months. During low season, restaurants and attractions stay open and keep normal hours.

The best days are the B.E.A.C.H. days!

Family bonding is always fun.

Hard to resist a group picture by the beach.


Surf Hut  was become our favorite stop on our venture through Destin. Service was great, the atmosphere was lively, and the food was fantastic! We ordered the "Catch of the day", grouper maybe don't quite recall but it was good. Served with rice and coleslaw --  good choice! My husband and I enjoyed sharing a fresh salad topped with seafood with a vinaigrette dressing for dinner.

They also have a great outdoor area with sand and a few tables on a covered deck.  We settled down outside on the deck I liked the open breezy feel of the place and enjoyed the views from our oceanfront table.

I love the retro feel atmosphere of this restaurant.

This year we took my parent's to Destin just because they missed our beaches back home (Philippines) at the same time we want to show them how beautiful the Florida Panhandle is .  No doubt they fell in love with it as much as we do.  Each day we watch the sunrise and sunset by the beach.  Memories that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

Destin's Miramar Beach is the cleanest most beautiful beach ever. 

Considering a trip to Destin, Florida? You should check out Mainsail - the perfect beachfront vacation destination. Located in the heart of Destin's Miramar Beach, Mainsail Resort boasts spectacular views of the emerald jewel-colored waters, close proximity to popular beachfront restaurants, grocery stores and a multitude of family amusements.

  7. Down the road in Panama City, we close certain big tourist places for the season. But if you're not worried about checking out the tourist traps, and are only interested in the beach then the pandhandle is a great place to be.
