As you can imagine - we get this question often, and it's a great inquiry to make when planning your beach vacation. We want to be sure our guests know that we are set back from the beach by about 2 blocks; so, no, we are not located directly on the shoreline of the Gulf. The resort does have a private beach access that is about 200 paces from the pool gate to the scenic route of pedestrian friendly 98. For our guests needing mobility assistance, our guest services is glad to provide golf cart transportation from our front drive to the resort beach access point by request and on a first come, first serve basis - we are glad to assist!
The views from the west side, Gulf View rooms, have a great sunset view overlooking 1.5 miles of preserve and the coastline.
It would be a pleasure to welcome you to The Henderson Beach Resort!

Great question as you plan ahead for your trip! There are fireworks scheduled around the area along the waterways. In Destin, a large fireworks display is annually scheduled at the Destin Harbor which is less than 5 miles from the resort to the west. From the resort's Sunset Vista located on the rooftop, guests can view this show from the distance and without crowds! We will have more information on our Independence Day activities available to share with our guests soon!
