The sand is so white and fun to walk on. I love this beach. Watching the dolphins and parasailing and other boats is so fun.

We had a great time in this area while the rest of the beaches were off limits do to rough tide and weather. This is a nice place for young children or all when the main beach is rough.

It has normal Florida beach traffic, not to crowded. We had a lot of fun. Very clean. I wish there were restaurants with beach access.

If you take Gulf shore drive to the end there is public parking. You can walk to beach and some of jetties. Water is shallow and great for small children. Snorkeling was a good experience for children here.

We stayed in the Jetty East right on the beach. Storms had moved through overnight while we were there so the water was a bit choppy, but the emerald color was beautiful and the sand was too! We walked down to the jetty to snorkel...More

This may be one of the best places in Destin. Not too crowded and the sand is like walking on air. Don't forget your sunscreen though!
