I have never felt sand so soft! Absolutely beautiful, not crowded at all. Just pick your piece of beach for the day. Nice public facilities.

This is one of my favorite drives. The beaches are absolutely beautiful. You never get tired of the view. There is always people out on the beaches. It takes about 20-30 minutes to drive because of the low speed limit, but it is worth it....More

Lovely white sand dunes with seaoats and other natural flora. Nature trail and several boardwalks for viewing. Beautiful area to watch the sunset!

We did a quick drive along the National Seashore late in the day after a long day of driving. The sand is an amazing white colour. We didn't have time to relax but enjoyed the drive. Similar to Grayton State Park further down the coast.

A little west of Destin is Gulf Islands National Seashore. It is definitely secluded, and the sand is soft and white. Because there are picnic shelters and bathrooms, you could spend a day here if you wanted to. I was... More
