Florida’s Emerald Coast is a an ocean-lovers paradise, with 24 miles of white-sand beaches, composed of quartz from the Appalachian mountains, and signature emerald-green colored warm waters. In the heart of Destin, facing the Gulf of Mexico is Henderson Beach State Park, a 1.5-mile stretch of beach and protected dunes, with natural trails, picnic areas and campsites. Cross over onto Okaloosa Island, and several ocean front parks line the gulf-side retreat, including John Beasley Park, with two dune walkovers and visitor amenities, and the Newman C. Brackin Wayside Park, adjacent to the popular fishing pier. Destin is known as the luckiest fishing village in the world, so try your own luck at surf fishing, where fisherman often reel in pompano, red fish, flounder, catfish, whiting, and sometimes cobia.
