Florida Beach Conference Venue

Fun in the Sun: Entertainment and Team Building

At Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa, we’re in the business of creating unforgettable and successful meetings. But we’re also in the business of creating unforgettable and exciting experiences for attendees.

Our resort can provide a unique combination of recreational opportunities that you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. For one, our Destin resort is the only full-service resort in Northwest Florida that’s directly on the beach. Our property houses a world-class spa, an array of dining options including a AAA Four-Diamond restaurantindoor and outdoor pools, championship golf, tennis, world-renowned fishing, beach volleyball, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and other water sports. When it’s time to take a break from meeting, we've got you covered.

Inventive Activities for Groups

Our recreation staff can help you make the most of our stellar beachfront location – and our temperate, sunny climate – by helping you plan fun outdoor group activities, such as a customized golf, tennis or fishing tournament.

  • Beach Volleyball

  • Castaway Beach Bowling
  • The Amazing Race

Beach Olympics & Team Building

With the Beach Olympics, and other team building events, we provide your group with recreation team members, an experienced host and master of ceremonies and any recreation equipment needed (from volleyballs to water balloons).

To hold your own Beach Olympics, the final contract (including group sizes and total costs) with Hilton Sandestin Beach should be received, signed and agreed upon two weeks prior to the date of the event. Custom and new events may be added upon request.

Other recreation and team building opportunities we offer at Hilton Sandestin Beach are:

  • A 5K or 2K Fun Run or Walk around the resort, with signage, mile markers, water stations and numbers for runners.
  • A dance party and competition with a DJ and prizes
  • A crab chase, with buckets, nets and flashlights, as well as prizes for the most crabs, biggest crab and smallest crab
  • The Hilton Quest scavenger hunt with teams of four or more. Your team hunts not for things, but for scenarios. The host might want to see a man wearing women’s shoes, for example

For all events, a 23% service charge applies. Any audio visual assistance required must be arranged through Hilton Sandestin Beach’s in-house AV department or using the group’s own equipment service.
