Crystal Shores

The privileged residential enclave of Crystal Shores has an outstanding location in the heart of Destin's Crystal Beach, a very short stroll away from the bright white sand crystalline shoreline. This exclusively gated community wraps around in a circular pattern on prestigious Ocean View Drive, with entry points at each end on Hutchinson Street and Crystal Beach Drive. The lush, established landscaping of towering palm trees, live oaks, and other indigenous plantings provides a wonderful tropical paradise of its own.

Besides access to the beautiful beach, which is only one block away, this neighborhood also features its own lovely lagoon-shaped swimming pool. This pool is heated during the cooler times of the year. It includes a paver stone patio for sunny lounging and convenient bathroom facilities with showers. The lavish vacation rental homes of the Crystal Shores neighborhood are two and three stories high with charming columned front porch verandas, upper-level balconies, along with Old Florida-styled metal roofs. Some of them include their own private pools with spacious landscaped patios, grill areas, and tables with chairs for poolside dining.

This highly sought-after locale is south of Emerald Coast Parkway, extending down to Scenic Highway 98, nearly bordering Destiny towards the east and the expansive Henderson Beach State Park towards the west. Popular gulf front restaurants and friendly beach bars are minutes away. They include the locally owned Camille's Restaurant, 790 on the Gulf, and the Crab Trap.

This private world is only two blocks away down Hutchinson Street from the highly acclaimed pedestrian-friendly shopping village known as Destin Commons. This idyllic retail destination is complete with picturesque turret towers, a classic fountain, a plaza patio with spurting geysers that provide fun refreshing frolic for kids, avenues adorned with Royal Palms, loads of fine clothiers, fashion boutiques, shoe shops, jewelers, specialty shops, restaurants, bars and a state of the art AMC Multiplex Theater. It is anchored by a giant Bass Pro Shop, a Belk's Department Store, and Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl & Grill. A Publix Grocery Store, wine outlets, specialty stores, and many restaurants with bars are also close by at three adjacent shopping centers.

This centralized point near the Midbay Bridge and Emerald Coast Parkway intersection is halfway between all the action at HarborWalk Village on the Destin Marina as well as abundant amusements at the charming Village of Baytowne Wharf in Miramar Beach at Sandestin. They each feature great restaurants, lively bars, outdoor concerts, fun festivals throughout the year, and exciting seasonal firework displays.
