Named one of the Top Ten Best Beach Destinations by The Travel Channel, the beaches of Destin Florida are some of the most beautiful in the world.
Known for our sparkling emerald waves and unbelievable, ultra-white sand that stays remarkably cool even during the hottest parts of the day(cooking an egg on the pavement is not make believe folks, trust us), our coastal paradise hosts an endless array of indoor and outdoor activities available no where else on earth.
Imagine visiting an old plantation, historically preserved, or exploring the natural beauty of Henderson State Park, and walking stretches of pristine shoreline or hopping in some kayaks, to paddle around the bays and bayous as you explore our amazing wetlands.
There is something for everyone in your family, regardless of age or ability.
For a more laid back afternoon, enjoy playing a fun round of golf at some of the most beautiful, prestigious courses in the country or perusing the shops and eateries at Silver Sands Outlets, or Destin Commons.
Take the family down to Destin Harbor to watch the sunset and spot the dolphins following our fishing crafts to port. While you’re at it, chat up one of the many captains who operate state of the art fishing charters, who can take your crew out for some spectacular sport fishing, to reel in Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Marlins and more, on the Gulf.
You will find something for the whole family on the Emerald Coast! Situated amidst all the pristine, coastal beauty is the only place to stay when visiting the Emerald Coast, the original beachfront landmark the Sea Oats Motel.
Ideal for the traveler who prefers a more quiet, laid back vacation on the shore, our comfortable accommodations are set away from the noisy crowds along Old Highway 98, yet still moments away from all the awesome attractions that you came to see.
Our suites are appointed with fine furnishings, spacious living areas, cozy bedrooms and oversized bathrooms as well as fully equipped kitchens for cooking up an intimate meal of freshly caught seafood, private patios overlooking breathtaking views of the Gulf, access to washer/dryers, high speed internet, and large, flat screen televisions with movies on demand and more!
Our beach service will gladly set up chairs and umbrellas, or arrange access to jet skis, paddle boards, kayaks among other toys. Or spend the time between the beaches and other activities, lounging around our beachside pool surrounded by our unique, semi-tropical bounty of lush foliage and fragrant flowers.
There’s so much to see and do that you may not know where to start, but you will know that you started off your visit right when you choose to stay along the shore at the Sea Oats Motel in sunny Destin Florida.
