Destin Hotel Guide

Many of Destin's hotels lie along the Emerald Coast Parkway; likewise a bunch of these accommodations afford views of either the Gulf of Mexico or the Choctawhatchee Bay. Writers highlight the all-inclusive Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, a 2,400-acre resort with four golf courses, multiple tennis courts and a day spa. More affordable chain properties also sit along the Emerald Coast Parkway. If you're on the hunt for a more unique budget vacation, recent visitors suggest setting up camp at Henderson Beach State Park, which sits east of the city center and in the middle of the peninsula, and offers a respite from the more crowded resorts.
