Now a mecca of resorts, fishing fleets, beaches and culture, Destin’s charms have not been overlooked by locals or tourists. For your beach getaway, we’re providing details about three of our area favorites, from things to do in Destin to where to stay.

Big Kahuna’s

For couples who want to step out of the ordinary vacation, Big Kahuna’s is an obvious choice. This Destin adventure and water park features a wave pool, water slides, go karts, lazy river and more.

Inside the park is a Super Speed Raceway, Sky Coaster and Cyclone Coaster for those who need time to dry off. When you’re ready to splish and splash, the Humunga River takes you through waves and currents. If you’d rather have a water ride or slide, you have plenty of choices since there are ten throughout the park.

Destin Fishing

Destin has always been known as the “world’s luckiest fishing village.” Today, tourists and locals have opportunities for deep sea fishing, jelly-fishing and trolling.

Charter fishing is another popular choice for things to do in Destin, as many vacationers want a private chance to catch the big one while enjoying the sun and water.

Where to Stay

Located only yards from the beach and minutes from central Destin sits a New England Style bed and breakfast. As the only beachfront bed and breakfast in Destin, Henderson Park Inn provides guests with a high-end and character-filled experience.

To reserve a suite, call us today at (866) 398-4432. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will answer any questions and would love to help plan a dream beach vacation.
