Destin, Florida is the ultimate destination for a couple’s getaway! Located on the famous Emerald Coast, Destin boasts some of the most beautiful scenery in the nation. When you stay at the Henderson Park Inn for your escape in Destin, you’ll have the perfect home base for exploring everything our charming city has to offer. To help you make the most of your next vacation, we have put together a guide to five of the best activities in Destin FL for couples.
1. Enjoy a Couples Massage at Salamander Spa
Situated across the street from the Henderson Park Inn at our sister property, The Henderson, Salamander Spa is a can’t-miss stop for any romantic escape in Destin. We highly recommend trying Salamander Spa’s Couples Massage. For 90 minutes, you will lie side by side with your sweetheart as you both enjoy customized massages, complete with hot stones and aromatherapy blends. Salamander even offers a special couple’s suite where you can enjoy your private session with one of the spa’s talented massage therapists.
2. Go Wine Tasting
Wine tasting is another one of our favorite activities in Destin FL for couples. While it may not be as well known as Northern California’s Wine Country, the Emerald Coast has a thriving wine scene that is welcoming to both visitors and locals alike. Destin is home to a number of wine cellars and wine bars, and in April, the area hosts two major wine events: the Sandestin Wine Festival and the Destin Charity Wine Auction. For more information about all of these businesses and festivals, check out our complete guide to wine tasting in Destin.
3. Have a Golf Date
If you like to hit the links with your sweetheart, Destin does not disappoint! Guests at the Henderson Park Inn will be just 5 minutes away from Regatta Bay Golf Club, which was named one of the “Top Places to Play in North America” by Golf Digest. Playing 18 holes at Regatta Bay is always a luxurious experience, as the course provides GPS-equipped golf carts, chilled apples on the 1st and 10th holes, mango-scented iced towels, and circulating beverage carts.
4. Take a Sunset Sailboat Cruise
For an unforgettable experience, we suggest taking Smile n Wave’s Sunset Sail. This wonderful sailboat tour takes guests out onto the Gulf of Mexico to watch the sunset. As you explore the Gulf, you might just catch a glimpse of pelicans flying through the air or dolphins swimming in the water. Touring the coast in a sailboat is especially romantic because there is no loud motor to spoil the mood.
5. Order Room Service from Beach Walk Cafe
No stay at the Henderson Park Inn is complete without ordering room service from our award-winning onsite restaurant, Beach Walk Cafe. Specializing in locally caught seafood prepared with French and Italian flavors, Beach Walk Cafe serves some of the most-buzzed-about dishes on the Emerald Coast. Be sure to save room for dessert because the restaurant’s banana cream pie is out of this world!
