Fun, Sun and Sandestin This Summer
The secret is out – the Panhandle of Northwest Florida is quickly becoming one of the hottest and most popular coastal destinations in the country.
Located in the heart of the Panhandle in popular South Walton is the iconic Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. This sprawling 2,400-acre playground has been rated as the #1 Resort in Destin by U.S. News and World Report and is universally recognized as the finest resort on the Emerald Coast. It seems Sandestin’s awards stretch further than its 7.5 miles of pristine beaches and bayfront – and with good reason – Sandestin is a four season resort for all ages. The resort features four championship golf courses, world-class tennis courts, swimming pools, marina, a variety of retail stores, fitness center, spa, the Village of Baytowne Wharf and so much more.
While any season is perfect to visit Sandestin, the late summer and fall time of the year is becoming more and more popular for vacations, fun getaways, or girls’ weekend. From August through October, the weather is nearly perfect, lodging options are plentiful and very affordable, and festivals and events happen weekly.
Fun for the Entire Family
There is something for everyone at the resort which has been entertaining guests for more than four decades. With almost 1,300 deluxe accommodations from which to choose from studios to four bedrooms to penthouses, all arrangements include versatile kitchens with full appliances and table settings. Wherever you choose to stay at Sandestin, the property is serviced by a resort-wide tram system, so you are just minutes away from the beach, spa, golf, fitness center, or guest pool areas.
For many travelers to South Walton, Sandestin means outdoor fun and those world famous beaches. Lounge all day and relax by soaking up the sun and splashing in the crystal clear emerald waters, or get up and get moving with a multitude of exciting activities like YOLO boarding, kayaking, wave runner rentals, parasailing and more. Sandestin offers more complimentary amenities than any other resort in Northwest Florida including daily bicycle rentals, access to 15 clay courts at the Tennis Center, fitness center and boogie boards. The days just don’t seem long enough to enjoy all the activities Sandestin has to offer. For families with children ages 4-12, take advantage of the resort’s Club KZ, rated one of the top such programs in the world by USA Today.
The Village of Baytowne Wharf
The Village of Baytowne Wharf is considered the center of activity at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. Enjoy shopping at Sandestin’s Family Retail Shops, Barefoot Princess, Island Clothiers, Coconut Kidz and Sandestin Clothing Company, all awarded 2015 “Best in Destin” honors. You can also choose from a number of great dining options throughout the Village to suit any budget, or appetite. Kids will love Baytowne Adventure Zone with cool activities like a ropes course, rock climbing wall, or try your luck inside the Blast Arcade.
Time spent on Sandestin’s world-famous beaches with their white sand and warm emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico, is priceless! And, with a full array of beach services, it is effortless as well. Soak up the fun in the sun with beautiful beaches, amazing events, endless shopping and more!
