Clear emerald color water. Able to see the fishes swimming around your feet. Better than Panama City beach and Destin. Also more quiet and less crowd. The best beach on gulf coast area with close to hotel and restaurants.

This public access beach is gorgeous all year 'round. Soft sugar-white sand, plyground for the kids, public restrooms, restaraunts and gift shops. There is a nearby pier for fishing. Bring the family for a visit but please, remember to only leave footprints in the sand.

We absolutely loved the island. The beautiful white sand and emerald water. My husband said it was his favorite place we have been in Florida. I wished it had sea shells. I know we will definitely be back to this area again in the future.

This is a nice laid back area. If you just want to enjoy the beach and eat out occasionally this is a good spot. If your looking for robust night life and go carts you may want to look else were

I think the Henderson inn in Destin is outstanding. They have a gorgeous big pool and spa as well. You might try AIRBNB and VRBO (vacation rental by owner). Have a happy wedding, and God bless you! You'll love Destin!

I think it’s an off and on thing that isn’t predictable. We have been there and had no problems and then been there and had a few bad days. Overall you can’t beat the white sand and green ocean no matter what!!
