Vacations at Destin Pointe on Holiday Isle provide a dazzling experience at the beach. This exclusively gated residential enclave has a premier location at the far western end of Holiday Isle, which is Destin's version of island living since it is surrounded on all three sides by jewel-toned waters. It borders Destin's Harbor towards the north, East Pass on the west side and the vast expanse of the gulf with endless views into the southern horizon. The sugary shoreline wraps around this privileged community which is centered upon two natural coastal dune lakes named Caroline and Christina. Coastal Dune Lakes are quite precious since they are found hardly anywhere else in the world. Their magical composition of salted fresh water attracts abundant wildlife including fish, Great Blue Herons, Snowy White Egrets, Seagulls, Ducks, and seasonal Pelican visitors. Many residents and guests experience stunning views across the lovely lakes and the waters beyond.
East Pass is Destin's only opening between the Gulf and Choctawhatchee Bay. Known as the "World's Luckiest Fishing Village" due to this unique location, Destin is home to the nation's largest private charter fleet because of the cornucopia of fish. From early morning till twilight you may watch the fishing boats or big yachts departing to the gulf and returning to the harbor. The Destin Jetties at East Pass attract colorful tropical fish and snorkeling here is a popular pursuit. Many people enjoy fishing off the jetties when they are not snorkeling, swimming in the gulf, sunbathing on the beach or strolling around the tropically landscaped neighborhood.
Destin Pointe also features a sparkling swimming pool, a playground, shuffleboard and tennis courts which makes it a very friendly family destination. In addition, fabulous fireworks are shot off over East Pass on a weekly basis during the summer season and during major holidays, which can easily be seen. Many of our Ocean Reef guests pack a picnic basket, amble down to the beach with their kids, throw up some chairs or spread a blanket and enjoy the show from there while sipping their favorite drinks.
We are proud to offer four fantastic vacation homes at Destin Pointe: The Lonestar Sandcastle and Aqua Easy overlook a beautiful coastal dune lake with views of East Pass in the distance while Land Zen and Aqua Sound sit upon a sugar white dune beside the gorgeous gulf.
