Travel Guide

Sandestin which includes a hotel

Enter the Gated City for its enormous golf resort, stay at a beachside villa and go shopping on this scenic peninsula.

Sandestin is a resort community with sandy shores and deluxe golf courses. It has a laid-back pace and offers picturesque views of the beaches, which are backed by rows of palm tree and hotels. Find a spot on the white stretch of sand for peaceful sunbathing.

Take advantage of a warm, clear day with a swim in the emerald-green Choctawhatchee Bay or the Gulf of Mexico. Both sides of this narrow strip of land contain beaches, hotels and shopping malls.

Snap photos of the white sand dunes on Miramar Beach, on the southern side of the peninsula. Stay at one of the many condos overlooking the water. You can also sleep beneath the stars in the upscale Camp Gulf RV park.

Browse the many stores, restaurants and cafés in the large Silver Sands Premium Outlets. For a change of tone, visit the nearby Resurrection Catholic Church.

Drive or walk around the northern side of the strip of land, which is dotted with scenic lakes. Enjoy the excellent views of the water features and the northern bay. Stroll through the Sandestin Baytowne Marina and pick out your favorite from the exclusive yachts and boats.

Golf is one of the main leisure activities in the area, which previously hosted the Boeing Championship at Sandestin. Practice your swing at Raven Golf Club, set against a marvelous backdrop of forests and lakes. Much of the town is centered on Sandestin Golf Resort, 2,400 acres (970 hectares) of terrain that is considered a gated city. Make your way through the 30 neighborhoods, featuring swimming pools, tennis courts and hotel buildings.

Find the neighborhood on a narrow peninsula jutting out from the northwestern coastline of Florida, not far from the Alabama border. Fly to Pensacola International Airport or Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport and rent a car to get here.

Sandestin is a haven for golfers, shoppers and beachgoers.
