This is a beautiful beach a little less crowded than the mid Destin area. There are many condos on the gulfside as well as restaurants and shopping. Located minutes to the Silver Sands outlet mall and SanDestin Baytowne.

We had a late spring break, so beach was not crowded and water was gorgeous. We easily found a space to plant our chairs and umbrellas and had room to spread out. We did see several underage drinkers get arrested by the beach patrol, so partiers beware! We, of course, are well of age, so no issues :-)

We spent a few days at the beach and loved it. It was not too crowded (week after Easter) and was easy to find a spot for our group. We brought some chairs with us, but were able to rent chairs as well. On two days we saw dolphins from the beach, one of which was clearly riding the waves.... More

Is there anything more relaxing than sitting on a beach chair under an umbrella on a warm summer day and just....being....? Crystal Beach gives you just the perfect venue. The beautiful Gulf, the brilliant white sand, the seagulls, the sights and sounds of summer.... bring the family and start making those beach memories!

Great white sand beach. Spring break crowds weren't too bad but much of the beach is limited on where you can set up tents and chairs. Get there early to get a good spot. This beach has post for volleyball but bring your own net. Has public bathrooms and shower.

Hands down this beach is in the top 3 I've ever been to. We stayed right on the beach in a condo and enjoyed every second of this place. What was considered the busy spring break week, I didn't mind it whatsoever and it didn't feel that busy. The sands are white and soft, the water was perfect and our... More

OMG...the beach is so clean and the sand feels like powder. Didn't want to leave. Due to it being spring break, had some rough waters, so couldn't get in due to red flag, but still enjoyed taking walks and playing games.
