Destin Florida Vacation Experiences

Your Ideal Florida Beach Resort Vacation

Some guests will choose to visit us at Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa for just one reason – our beautiful Gulf of Mexico views, for instance, or the nearby world-class golf options. But once they arrive, they discover there’s so much more to our Destin, Florida resort. And without fail, they end up leaving with memories to cherish for a lifetime.

We recommend allowing time in your schedule to explore the resort, to try a new activity, to taste a new food, to leave your comfort zone. Who knows – maybe you will find a brand new passion while here.

Our Florida Gulf Coast beach is what draws many to the resort in the first place. The water is clear, clean and calm, and we offer plenty of beach activities and amenities. The resort also features three pools (two outdoor and one indoor), whirlpools and an expansive sunbathing deck. We boast an award winning full-service spa and salon, as well as a 24 hour state-of-the-art fitness center.

A Fantastic Florida Family Resort

Hilton Sandestin Beach is considered one of the best family vacation resorts in Florida. We offer daytime and evening programs for kids, babysitting services and kid-friendly dining options and accommodations. On our resort property, we feature six distinctive dining choices, ranging from the casual Barefoot's Beachside Bar & Grill to the AAA Four-Diamond Seagar’s Prime Steaks & Seafood Restaurant.

Guests at Hilton Sandestin Beach have full access to four award-winning, championship golf courses, a putting course, 15 tennis courts and bike rentals at Sandestin. The Destin area is world-famous for fishing, and the nearby Baytowne Marina offers bay, beach and gulf fishing charters, as well as boat rentals, wave runners, parasailing trips, and dinner and nature cruises. Only minutes away is The Village of Baytowne Wharf, home to charming shops and boutiques, a variety of restaurants, nightlife options and year-round festivals and other fun events and activities. Complimentary shuttles run regularly from Hilton Sandestin Beach to the golf courses and tennis courts at Sandestin, to Baytowne Marina and to The Village of Baytowne Wharf.

Fun Things to Do in Destin

In addition to the Village of Baytowne Wharf, our resort is close to many other Destin shopping centers, including the area’s largest factory outlet center, Silver Sands Premium Outlets. Shopping aficionados should also check out Grand Boulevard and Destin Commons. Other Destin attractions, such as state parks, a water park, aquarium, cultural attractions and opportunities for snorkeling and scuba diving, are conveniently close to our resort.
