Beach Vibes

The stunning green waters of the Gulf of Mexico give the Emerald Coast its name and, and it is known the world over for its beautiful beaches. With powdery white sand that stretches for seven miles, pull up a chair and soak up the sun or take a refreshing dip. There’s nowhere else you’d rather be.

  • Father and son fishing

Great Catch

Fish one of the catch and release lakes or right along the beach, enjoy the excitement of a deep sea fishing trip, or charter a pontoon. Sandestin's Baytowne Marina has everything you need, from bait to boat. Even if you don’t catch a thing, it’s a day you'll always remember.

  • A couple stand-up paddle-boarding.
    Stand-up paddleboard, one of the many watersports at your fingertips.


A day out on the water can be a relaxing escape or thrilling adventure. Try out standup paddle boarding, zip through the waves on a WaveRunner, meander along the shore by kayak, or play around on water bikes and boogie boards. Make your way to Baytowne Marina and before you know it you’ll be making  waves.
