Bahia means "bay" in Spanish, which is the perfect description for this premier destination as it sits right beside the beautiful Choctawhatchee Bay on the prestigious Sandestin Resort. Views toward the west are almost limitless and panoramic views to the north extend five miles across the sparkling waters towards the mainland. The regal front of this stately building overlooks a large lagoon shaped swimming pool, a bubbling hot tub, and a kid's wading pool. The curvy pool is edged by a patio with chairs, perfectly positioned for lounging in the sun. Palm trees and lush plants adorn the pool for a tropical flair. Besides the pool, a Beach Tram can whisk you across the resort's grounds over to the sugar white beach where you may luxuriate in the glowing gulf waters.
Bahia is located in the heart of the Village of Baytowne Wharf, which is an absolutely charming "nouveau" rendition of the New Orleans French Quarter. This picturesque village is a short stroll away in an enchanting world of its own. A long wharf sweeps out across the water beside the Sandestin Marina. Romantic sunset cruises are available there aboard the Solaris which provides special discounts for Ocean Reef Resorts guests. Many like to fish off this long wharf or stroll out to the end to enjoy the shimmering scenery. Stellar sunsets occur over the bay throughout the summer as the golden orb lowers down into the western waters. The bay often mirrors these vibrant colors in the sky in heavenly fashion. Baytowne offers a wide array of restaurants, lively bars, seasonal festivals with fireworks, free concerts and abundant amusements. Grand Boulevard is also a short distance away serving as Sandestin's Town Center with additional restaurants, bars specialty shops and upscale clothiers.
