5 Romantic Things to Do in Destin Florida

As one of the most romantic hotels in the nation, we’d like to think that those of us at Henderson Park Inn know a thing or two about romance. Some may even consider us experts on the topic, and while we believe spending plenty of time on Henderson Park Inn property provides plenty of romance for couples, we compiled a few of our favorite romantic things to do in Destin Florida:

1. Toes in the Sand at Beach Walk Café

While this dining experience is on Henderson Park Inn property at our in-house restaurant, you won’t find a more romantic activity on the emerald coast. With Toes in the Sand, you and your love dine directly on the beach. Featuring delicious food crafted by Executive Chef Daniel Peters, a dedicated server and spectacular up-close views of the Gulf of Mexico, this is one of the most romantic things to do in Destin Florida.

2. Helicopter Tour

While relaxing on Henderson Park Inn’s secluded, private beach, you may notice a number of helicopters passing throughout the day. Some of these crafts may be from the local Air Force bases, but many are helicopter tours offered to visitors in the area. A private two-person helicopter tour just before sunset is definitely one of the most unique romantic things to do in Destin Florida, offering a whole new view of our little beach town and the beautiful water surrounding it.

3. Couples’ Massage at The Spa

The Henderson, our sister property and part of Henderson Beach Resort. All of our guests have access to their incredible amenities, including their state-of-the-art spa. So, take a moment to truly relax and be pampered together with a couples’ massage at The Spa at The Henderson.

4. Take a Sunset Cruise

Just a short drive from the inn are a number of sunset cruise options. From a dinner cruise on the Solaris to a quick ride on the water, you can find the perfect sunset cruise to suit your fancy. Each offers a unique romantic experience perfect for couples looking for extra time spent together with beautiful views.

5. Toast to Your Love at the Rooftop Bar

Also on Henderson Beach Resort property is the Rooftop Bar at The Henderson. It has one of the most spectacular views of Henderson Beach State Park, and it is the perfect location for a before dinner cocktail and appetizer. Plus, it earns its spot on our romantic things to do in Destin Florida list as one of the best places to watch the sunset. You can cozy up in one of the corners and watch the sun sink into the horizon, giving you plenty of quality time in a beautiful setting.

There are still hundreds of other romantic things to do in Destin Florida, and if you’re having trouble finding what you and your better half are looking for in a romantic vacation, our guest services team does an incredible job with recommending activities for our guests to enjoy.
