Featuring beautiful serene waters and a new boardwalk finished just a few years ago, Destin Harbor brings together the unique character of the harbor with recreational activities, shopping, restaurants, and more. In 2012, local property owners banded together to create Destin Harbor’s beautiful Destin Boardwalk, offering visitors easier access to the water. With the addition of the boardwalk, visitors can easily enjoy fishing charters, recreational boating charters, and plenty of exciting water activities.
Along with the beautiful new boardwalk that makes it easy for visitors to access all that the harbor waters offer, Destin Harbor is packed with restaurants that offer great water views and fantastic food. For those who love shopping, plenty of charming stores line the boardwalk.
Not only does Destin Harbor’s Boardwalk offer almost a quarter-mile of walking along the beautiful waters of the Harbor, but an extension of this boardwalk also goes on to become HarborWalk Village. Its central location in Destin makes it a hub of activity, with a wide variety of restaurants, events, and family-friendly activities for locals and visitors to enjoy.
Destin Harbor offers a great spot to book a cruise out on the Gulf of Mexico or around the Harbor. Many cruises are available right in the harbor, from dolphin watching cruises that take people right out into the Gulf seeking beautiful dolphins in the lovely blue waters to a harbor lights cruise that offers an evening on the water viewing all the gorgeous lights that line Destin Harbor. Evening fireworks cruises are even available.
For those who prefer something more active, fishing charters abound at Destin Harbor. From private charters to group charters to inshore and offshore trolling, everyone is sure to find a fishing charter fulfill their dream of finally reeling in a big one.
Beyond the hustle and bustle of the shops, restaurants, and the myriad of activities always going on at Destin Harbor, it’s always a relaxing place to sit and enjoy the local beauty. With plenty of seating along the walk, beautiful lighting on the boardwalk at night, and boats continually coming and going in the harbor, many visitors enjoy simply sitting down and watching the boats or taking a few moments to enjoy a gorgeous sunset from Destin Harbor.
