The shimmering crystal white shoreline wraps around the exclusively gated Destin Pointe community, centered upon two natural coastal dune lakes named Caroline and Christina. Coastal Dune Lakes are very precious as they are found hardly anywhere else in the world. Their magical composition of salted freshwater attracts abundant wildlife, including fish, Great Blue Herons, Snowy White Egrets, Ducks, and seasonal Pelican visitors. Many guests experience stunning vistas of this natural beauty across these lovely lakes and the gleaming waters beyond.
The East Pass is Destin's only opening between the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay which became the "World's Luckiest Fishing Village" due to this unique location. It is home to the largest private charter fleet in all of North America. From early morning till twilight, you may watch the fishing boats or big yachts departing to the gulf and returning into the harbor. Rock jetties line the shoreline at the East Pass, which attracts colorful tropical fish, so snorkeling here is a popular pursuit. Many people enjoy fishing off the jetties when they are not snorkeling, splashing around in the gulf, sunbathing on the beach, or strolling around the lush, tropically landscaped neighborhood.
Destin Pointe features a large sparkling swimming pool, a kid's playground, shuffleboard, and tennis courts - making it a perfect family-friendly Florida destination. Fireworks are shot off over the East Pass weekly during the summer season, with fabulous vibrant displays featured during the major holidays seasons. Many guests pack a picnic basket, stroll down to the beach with their families, put down some chairs or spread a blanket and enjoy the show while sipping their favorite tropical drinks.
This fantastic Destin location is close to grocery stores, shopping adventures, restaurants, and friendly beach bars. Many of them are located at the captivating destination of HarborWalk Village on Destin's bustling harbor. It features waterfront restaurants, live music, specialty shops, outdoor concerts, fun festivals, and seasonal firework displays. Guests also enjoy recreational water rentals for pontoon boats, sunset dinner cruises, dolphin sightseeing excursions, charter fishing expeditions, and even a treasure hunt aboard a replica of a sail mast pirate ship with a rollicking costumed crew.
