In Destin it's all about water. And why not? With sugar-white sandy beaches and emerald-green, crystal clear Gulf water, it's the perfect base from which to sail, wind surf, scuba dive or snorkel. If there's a water sport you're interested in, Destin is destined to have it. In addition to the beach, families will enjoy an outing to Big Kahuna's Water and Adventure Park which offers thrilling water rides, plus go-kart tracks and a mini-golf course. Or take the children to see and learn more about the region's unique marine life at the Gulfarium, in nearby Fort Walton Beach. Join a cruise to spot dancing dolphins, a favourite pastime on the Emerald Coast, or go on a deep-sea fishing excursion. When you're ready to get out of the water, consider teeing off at any of the area's top-notch golf courses, enjoying a fine bottle of wine at a fabulous restaurant and settling in at a comfortable hotel. Because in Destin, it's also all about recreation and relaxation.
