Destin Area Information

Destin is well known as the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village largely because of its roots as a top fishing destination and quick access to the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Destin boasts the largest charter fishing fleet in the state of Florida. If you have an interest in charter deep sea fishing – Destin is the place. But, there is much more to Destin than charter fishing. Destin has evolved over the years to be a top beach vacation destination. Featuring sugar-white sand beaches and emerald-colored water, it is an absolutely beautiful area. The town itself offers many upscale shopping, dining, and entertainment opportunities. Much of the development of the area has been done with luxury lifestyles in mind. Destin also has one of the busiest private airports in the country. There are an abundance of things to do in Destin to include water parks, water sports rentals, parasailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, power boating, sailing, fishing, tennis, shopping, or just plain relaxing on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

Just what we needed! Clean, updated and fully stocked.

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Emerald Dunes was right on the beach with very easy access to the beach! We enjoyed the free beach chairs and umbrellas everyday because my in laws aren't suppose to be in the sun. We enjoyed the deck overlooking the beach every morning for breakfast as well as at lunch. The condo was very convient to Publix and Walgreens which we visited frequently. We will for sure come back, this was our first visit to Destin and it was by far the best beach! If you get a chance make sure and rent a pontoon from Luther's and go to crab island and see the hundreds of hermit crabs. We had one day where the water had no waves and the sting rays came to visit which was a neat experience, we saw dolphins just about every morning and evening. Much needed family vacation!

Emerald Dunes 203

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at Emerald Dunes. It was a very spacious condo and we had ample room. We shared the space with another family and it was perfect! The property management company Compass Resorts did a great job managing the property. They checked in regularly and when we called they very accomodating to early and late check out. The condo was well equipped with kitchen utensils and even spices. The location was in Crystal Beach and quieter than other sections of Destin which was perfect. It was central to a lot of restaurants and stores. The pool was in a weird location at the front of the building that faced the street but we did not use as much. The condo only came with 2 chairs and a umbrella so bring your own unless you want to pay an additional $150 for a week for an extra two chairs and umbrella. Great vacation and location overall. We would definitely stay again and are already looking to book again this summer.
