There’s always so much unbelievable fun to be had when visiting the phenomenal, outdoor wonderland and jewel of the Gulf, Destin Florida.
The question then becomes, when there’s so many amazing activities and attractions, where does one family begin first?
With this query posed quite often to the friendly staff over the check in counter at the Sea Oats Motel, an original beachfront vacation hideaway, we have given a considerable amount of time and thought into our answers.
Over the next few days, we will provide travelers to our tropical ‘Garden of Eden’ with a few of our favorite things to do while staying at the Sea Oats Motel in sunny Destin. Let’s begin:
You may have seen the brightly colored, little torpedo shaped boats or giant surfboard like contraptions, gliding over the waves as you lounges on shore in the hot sun.
But if you’ve never considered Kayaking or paddleboarding before, you should know that it is the perfect way to escape the crowds and beat the heat this summer while also marveling at all the natural splendor and charm of the beaches or coastal wetlands of the Emerald Coast.
When you’re out on the water with friends or family, time seems to stand still. There’s no better way to reconnect with loved ones, nature and yourself than when you are dipping a paddle into our crystal clear waters.
Luckily, the private shoreline at the Sea Oats Motel, and the astounding, semi-tropical land/seascape of Destin Florida, is the ideal place to learn the ropes or take the lead on your own coastal adventure.
Be sure to catch a guided eco tour via kayak with a company like Bay Water Sports, who will provide your family or group with the necessary equipment along with expert operating advice, and escort you as you coast around the various pristine Gulf habitats which are home to a vast array of furry, finned, and feathered creatures which you will likely get to see while on your tour.
We recommend early morning or late afternoon excursions to avoid the hottest part of the day and increase your chance to see some of our unique wildlife.
Paddleboarding or kayaking the best way to see our gorgeous native flora and fauna for the same reason which makes it wonderful for finding inner peace… it’s very quiet, some might even say tranquil. With no loud marine engines to scare away the sea life, dolphins can be seen swimming and frolicking right next to your kayak.
And with no choking exhaust fumes, you will get a healthy dose of fresh sea air, maybe even catching the delicate fragrance of confederate jasmine, honeysuckle, or wild magnolia, which all grow along the banks of our pristine waterways.
At the end of the day spent exploring gulf coast waterways, you will be tickled as pink as our sunsets to head back to our cozy haven on the beach, with its comfortable furnishings and spacious living areas complete with a fully equipped kitchen and private balcony overlooking our beautiful beaches.
You will appreciate the fact that we are set away from all the hustle and bustle on Old Highway 98, and yet all the outstanding shopping, dining, and gulf coast attractions that make Destin one of the Top Ten Best Beach Vacations, are just a whim away.
With so much to do on the Emerald Coast, you may have a hard time deciding what to do first. You shouldn’t have a hard time deciding where to stay though, and with a little help from the caring staff at the Sea Oats Motel, you’re family will create memories that will have them smiling for years.
