“Gorgeous beach, crystal clear water”

I've been to beaches in Florida, Jamaica, Maui and the Caymans and Crystal Sands Beach was right up there. We have family on the east coast of Florida, otherwise this would be our new go-to for spring break and beach trips!

Rented a condo on the beach. Clean white sand, clear water, not very rough surf. Just lounged on the beach everyday and fished. Went out to eat once a day. Don't go here unless you want to hang out on a perfect beach. There isn't much else to do unless you like to do the tourist stuff, i.e. go-carts, put put golf etc.

beautiful and the sunsets were even better. It was quiet. not a lot of people. There was wedding on the beach and couple of other gatherings, but it was so peaceful.

We only stopped here on our drive for one night. Luckily our hotel was only one block off the beach. The crystal sand is simply impressive. The beach was clean as well.

Destin has the most beautiful and pristine beaches I’ve ever seen in the United States. The water is emerald colored and clear. There was no seaweed or shells on the sand. The beach looks like something out of a magazine... just unreal. The sunsets are nothing short of amazing. I traveled to Destin in December during the off season and without the heavy people traffic on the beach, you can see its real beauty. There are beautiful birds everywhere. The sunsets were spectacular!!! If you love the beach and have never been to the Emerald Coast, it’s time you take a trip. You will love what nature has done in Destin. I highly recommend!
