We were east of this and the sand was not this high. At low tide it was flat at the water and only about 18 inches at high tide.

This is the only "safe" place for snorkeling in Destin, The water is clear and the fish a beatiful. Unfortunately, it has become over commercialized and too crowded to really enjoy but we'll try again next vist.

The sand is so white and fun to walk on. I love this beach. Watching the dolphins and parasailing and other boats is so fun.

We had a great time in this area while the rest of the beaches were off limits do to rough tide and weather. This is a nice place for young children or all when the main beach is rough.

It has normal Florida beach traffic, not to crowded. We had a lot of fun. Very clean. I wish there were restaurants with beach access.

If you take Gulf shore drive to the end there is public parking. You can walk to beach and some of jetties. Water is shallow and great for small children. Snorkeling was a good experience for children here.
