Introducing Destin…The Jewel on Florida’s Emerald Coast

destin header

Sugar-white beaches, bountiful exotic food and magnificent, luxurious beach-front properties await you in Destin, Florida. Get ready to test the warm waters of the famous American Panhandle with our series of blog posts offering the low-down on the best places to eat, sleep and play in this beautiful location.

map of destin

Destin lies on the Northwest coast of Florida, snuggled next to the Gulf of Mexico in a blanket of white sandy beaches. Alabama and Georgia press hard against the borders, contributing a large cultural influence on this small strip of land, which boasts a true laid-back, deep-south way of life.

Surprisingly, this area used to be the cultural centre of Florida, before Miami emerged out of the swamp to the south, taking much of the plantation owners business down to Tallahassee. This left much of Destin to remain uninhabited and in its natural state – not that is a bad thing – the natural beauty is a massive draw for those who visit here, whether they’re relaxing along the seemingly never ending Miramar Beach, or the rugged wilderness of St Vincent Island.
