About this beach

Warnings and hazards

Come early to grab a parking space!

Pets allowed on the beach only if you have a permit from the county!

In my opinion, this is one of the best beaches on the West coast of Florida. A perfect relaxing place for families or couples wanting to get away from the crowds and the noise.

Perfect views, warm white sand, and crystal clear waters. Lots of sea creatures, occasionally you can see a dolphin or two swim by. Simply perfect. After a few visits, I can tell that the beach is rarely crowded.

Great restaurants, a pub, a taco place, coffee shops and ice cream spots within walking distance. If you are staying for a few days, there's a health food store, and an organic bakery. 

Many condos nearby available for rent along the surf. Grayton State Park is only a few minutes away.

A nice bonus – fighter jets and Ospreys flying out of Pensacola and Jacksonville Naval Air Stations.

Driving time

  • From Destin – 30 minutes by car 
  • From Mobile, AL – 2 hours 20 minutes by car
  • Around 4 hours drive from New Orleans
  • Around 5 hours drive from Atlanta, GA

What we loved

  • Everything. The beach is perfect.

This is what my first morning of vacation looked like. Calm, warm, no red tide yet, and beautiful. The hurricane cut up the coastline in a very interesting way… neat little #sandbars everyone is enjoying

We can’t seem to put this baby down so she’s taking her sweet time learning to walk. Every time she takes a few steps we all get so excited we sound like her own personal cheer squad. 😂👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Why does the beach have to be so far away? 😭We didn’t get our full week in but I think the family enjoyed EVERY minute while we were here. My dad and I had planned to run the @30ahalfmarathon today (one of the reasons we came) but it ended up being cancelled due to the hurricane. Although I’m kinda glad it didn’t happen on account of not being in my best running shape, I was looking forward to seeing the course, getting a cool shirt out of it, and pursuing the prize money. Oh well maybe next year 💁🏼‍♀️ Of course I had to get in one last workout on the beach before hitting the road. This one will definitely leave your shoulders burning 💪🏼
