About the Emerald Coast
Ask someone their impression of the Emerald Coast and the first thing they will probably answer “snow white beaches and emerald waters”. In fact our crystalline sandy beaches and vivid waters have received national and international acclaim. If you like to fish, you’ll love these emerald waters. Destin is known as the Luckiest Fishing Village in the world. If you like golf, this area has dozens of championship golf courses. Tennis? We have that too. Shopping? You bet. We have colorful, quaint local boutiques and we have the Destin Commons and Silver Sands Designer Outlet Center – the largest designer discount shopping experience in the country.

Besides its world-famous beaches, the Emerald Coast is known for fresh seafood, great cooking, and an incredible variety of memorable restaurants.
