Destin Draws Visitors to Florida's Emerald Coast

Destin is a city on the Gulf Coast of Florida, but unlike many Gulf Coast vacation spots, Destin is not located along the western edge of the large peninsula that makes up the state of Florida. Instead, Destin is located in Okaloosa County, which is in the "panhandle" of the state. Okaloosa County spans a strip that stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to the northern border of Florida.

Destin holiday homes allow tourists to enjoy one of the most popular cities in its local region. According to the Environmental Protection Department in Florida, more than 4.5 million tourists visit the local area, known as the "Emerald Coast" each year. Of these, more than 80% visit Destin to take advantage of the white beaches and emerald-hued sea waters that give the entire region its name.

Destin publicizes itself as the "World's Luckiest Fishing Village," and claims as part of this heritage the largest fleet of fishing vessels in all of Florida. Certainly, tourists here can see a wide variety of fishing boats, some of which are available for charter. There are more than 12 access points to the beach; after a day enjoying the surf and sand, tourists can dine in restaurants that serve fresh seafood. Fishing has been a way of life in Destin since Captain Leonard Destin first settled in the region during the mid-1800s.

The city limits of Destin encompasses more than eight square miles, but of this area, almost 8% is water.

Many miracles of nature caress Destin. The underwater 100 Fathom Curve draws closer to Destin than to any other spot in Florida – creating the speediest deep-water access on the Gulf. This phenomenon makes the area the “Billfish Capital of the World” with a world record catch of 1,061 lbs. and an area of sensational seafood offering over four times more types of fresh fish per season. the Emerald Coast is the combination of sun-bleached, shocking white shores, stretching 24 miles like ribboning white satin, with rich, emerald-jeweled waters. Sprawling shores provide seating for performances by dancing dolphins and sandpipers, as well as postcard-perfect sunrises and sunsets over the Gulf – all compliments of Mother Nature.
