Sandestin Beach Resort
Sandestin Resort on the Beach
Located in Northwest Florida just a click east of Destin, the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort is a sprawling 2,400-acre resort that offers stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico and the bay, as well as bountiful recreation and amenities. Spilt into two sides, this resort features a “Beach” side that is located along the Gulf and a “Bay” side that features a majority of the golfing and attractions. These sides are connected via a walk-under—a tunnel which passes under Highway 98. ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals has luxurious vacation rentals in the Westwinds, Beachside I and Beachside II complexes as well as the Tivoli by the Sea and Fairways communities.
As the name would indicate, part of this resort is located directly on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and feature the sugar-white sand for which the area is famous. Beach access is just a short walk from the Beachside I and II and Westwinds complexes located directly on the Gulf.
Additionally, there are multiple championship golf courses weaving through the resort, one of which—The Raven Course—has served as the host site of professional golf’s Champions Tour events. The pro shop at the foot of the Links Course is open to the public and provides everything you’ll need for a round on the picturesque fairways and greens.
However, beach fun and great Northwest Florida golf are but two of the countless activities available at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. In fact, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort was named one of the Top 75 Tennis Resorts in the World for 2013 by Tennis Resorts Online, a leading industry publication.
Guests at Beachside I and II and Westwinds can stay active and fit at the onsite fitness centers at each of those complexes. Our proximity to the Gulf opens the door to water sports. Plus, the onsite Baytowne Marina is a great spot from which to launch boating and fishing activities, while Adventure Lane, Adventure Zone, Blast Arcade and Laser Maze, EuroBungy and the Tower Climb—all within Baytowne Wharf—offer family fun and recreation.
Additional features of this resort’s “beach” side include the Serenity by the Sea spa on the east end, as well as the Elephant Walk restaurant. Crossing over to the “bay” side of the resort, guests will find more than 30 shops, specialty boutiques and renowned restaurants in The Village of Baytowne Wharf. Bike rentals are also available for those that want to explore the resort’s natural beauty and the JoLee Island—a nature adventure area great for family fun. Guests can also fish in the numerous catch-and-release ponds dotting the landscape.
Nationally-recognized outdoor shopping malls such as Silver Sands Premium Outlets and the Destin Commons are mere minutes away. Also, the Grand Boulevard Shopping Center—home to a state-of-the-art movie theater and Ovation Dining Club—are a very short drive away, making the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort the perfect location for your next beach getaway to Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast.
