Crab Island is a must for your to do list when visiting Destin. Although it’s called an island, it’s actually an underwater sandbar. You can reach crab island by renting a boat, kayak, or other watercraft. However, it is not suggested you swim out there as the current in the bay can be quite strong.

Florida’s Scenic 30-A is a stretch of beach road that stretches along the Emerald Coast from Sandestin to Rosemary Beach. Dotted with beach communities, resorts, beach bars and 25,000 acres of protected state forests and rare dune lakes, 30A is a must see for those who love the beach.

 

This stretch of road is made up of unique beach communities that still offer that laid back lifestyle and local vibe that you would expect from a Florida beach town. If you are making a day trip from Destin, plan on having lunch in Seaside. The motion picture “The Truman Show” was filmed in Seaside. Definitely, a beach lovers paradise.
