Sunny the Sea Turtle is Back!
Our favorite Kids Krew Mascot returns
Sunny's job is to advocate the protection of marine life, especially endangered sea turtles. Guests of all ages are able to learn about protecting mother turtles as they lay their eggs – the process of hatchlings making it back to the Gulf and Hilton Sandestin Beach's efforts to protect sea turtles through turtle-safe lighting by reading the information on Sunny. As a result of its a 2010-11 renovation project, Hilton Sandestin Beach has made a number of enhancements to decrease their carbon footprint further and protect the natural wildlife that surrounds the beachfront property. Hilton Sandestin Beach installed more than $250,000 in "turtle safe" LED lighting, specially designed to minimize disturbances to nesting sea turtles, their hatchlings, and other coastal wildlife. The new lighting was installed as part of the newly renovated 20,000-square-foot pool deck, giving off a warm, orange glow so guests can enjoy beach side dining and evening swims, without distracting turtles from the moonlight.
Families vacationing at Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa have all their needs met – from kid-friendly accommodations – including the popular bunk beds in the Junior Deluxe Suites, and in-room cribs - to dining options the kids love, and a multitude of activities for all ages. Whatever you need – or forgot – we’ve got the entire family covered! Learn more about our Kids Krew program.
