Make a holiday apartment in Mary Esther your home away from home

Mary Esther holidays apartments offer a quieter alternative to the more boisterous party towns of the Florida Panhandle's Emerald Coast. Sited just to the west of bustling fishing and beach resort Fort Walton Beach, rentals at Mary Esther are party to all the convenience, but none of the fuss. Incredible Gulf Coast beaches lie just a short distance away on the barrier islands, which shelter the inland waterways for peaceful watersports such as fishing and boating. Most Mary Esther accommodation comes equipped with air-conditioning and has direct access to the beach and a pool. Most rentals at Mary Esther also come with a BBQ area, satellite or cable TV, and are family friendly.

Things to do

-Beaches: The extensive beaches on the Emerald Coast are known for their pure whiteness, a unique quality of the quartz crystal that constitutes most of their sand. These beaches lie mainly on the long strips of barrier island, accessible from Mary Esther rentals by boat, causeway or bridge. There are also more secluded beaches on the small intervening islands and islets.

-Watersports: From surfing to sailing, and fishing to waterskiing, popular tourist destinations like this stretch of coast abound with marinas and surf shops, so guests are really spoiled for choice when it comes to who they deal with. Clamour for custom can generate some great deals.

-Nightlife: As guests might expect, popular Spring Break destinations like Fort Walton are tremendous places to party, even when the college kids are back at school studying. While there are only a couple of bars and restaurants in Mary Esther itself, a great selection is only a couple of miles away in Fort Walton Beach, or even ten miles along the coast around Destin harbour.

-History: With the 19th-century discovery of an ancient Indian Temple Mound built by the Fort Walton Culture of native Americans during the middle ages, Fort Walton's Indian Temple Mound Museum, and the Heritage Park and Cultural Centre explore the unique history of this stretch of coast.

-Nature: When the partying and beaches get old, there are always the wonderful parks and preserves to explore for a quiet day out enjoying some more natural surroundings. John Beasley Park lies directly across the Intracoastal Waterway from Mary Esther on Santa Rosa Island, while Topsail Hill Preserve State Park and Blackwater River State Park are only a short drive away.

Weather in Mary Esther

Florida has a humid subtropical climate, which typically means long, hot, wet summers and short, mild, dry winters. However, Mary Esther's position on the western panhandle flavours this somewhat, and unlike other areas of Florida, precipitation is more evenly spread throughout the year rather than concentrated in just the summer months. This means the summer is the high season here, whereas in southern Florida the reverse is often true. Temperatures can also get a little hotter, creeping into the high-30°C range during the summer and the low-20s in the winter.

Travel to Mary Esther

Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport is the closest airport to Mary Esther, at 62 miles away. Tallahassee Regional Airport is another option at 166 miles away, but these two hubs are only reachable by changing flights. For direct flights, guests need to make the longer journey to Atlanta International Airport at 319 miles away. While some guests may baulk at such a distance, petrol is so cheap in the US and the road system so well designed, road trips quite fly by. In addition, public transport is nearly always a bad idea in the US, so fly/drive is usually the only viable option.
