Spring Break 3 Ways
Spring break is right around the corner. If you’re looking for all the vacation essentials — sun, sand, activities and more — consider Hilton Sandestin BeachGolf Resort & Spa your Florida beach destination of choice.
Florida’s Gulf coast is one of the best spring break destinations out there. From the emerald green waters to the sugar-white sand, it’s the perfect place to get away, relax and celebrate the season. And the best part? There’s something for everyone.
The Adventurous Spring Break
When the weather is (nearly) perfect all season long, you take advantage andexplore the great outdoors. At Hilton Sandestin Beach it’s easy to explore by land or by sea — and we’ve got plentyof great spring break ideas and activities. Spend your first day of vacation on the water stand up paddle boarding and right here at the resort. Or head to nearby Baytowne Marina for fishing charters, dolphin-watch cruises, parasailing and more. Switch things up on your next day in paradise by visiting Vortex Spring in Ponce De Leon for some scuba diving. There you’ll find the largest diving facility in the state and one of the best diving destinations in the country — equipment rental and lessons are all available on site. After some underwater exploration, check out the zip line, or use the rope swing to jump back into the crystal-clear waters. Before returning to the resort, stop by Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, and to take your picture next to the 25-foot sand dunes. Then come back home and rest up for more adventure at a fantastic Florida beach destination.
