Miramar Beach

A little village that grew, Miramar Beach was once a sleepy spot on old Highway 98. Today this strip of coast road still reflects the community’s laid back beach personality. As it meanders past classic beach shops, seafood shacks, condos and private beachfront homes, it offers panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico.

A wide variety of accommodations options are available, from full service resorts to single family luxury beach houses. There’s also one of Florida’s rare finds, a beachfront camping and RV park. Local restaurants offer everything from Seafood to Thai cuisine and there are ice cream parlors and coffee shops located all along the beach.

Recreation includes beachcombing, fishing, parasailing, golf, tennis, and shopping, especially since Miramar Beach is home to the nation's largest designer outlet center, Silver Sands Factory Stores. Then again, grabbing a book and heading to the nearest beach chair is always a popular activity.


For years, the name Sandestin has been synonymous with fun. Located on U. S. Highway 98, Sandestin features 2,400 acres of beach and bayfront with stunning scenery and a never-ending list of activities that includes golf, tennis, swimming, and bicycling. There’s even a zip line attraction and a nature trail designed with kids in mind.

The Sandestin Beach area includes Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, a full-service beach resort featuring four golf courses, a marina, and 1,450 accommodations located within 30 distinctive neighborhoods. The Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa, a contemporary high-rise beachfront hotel with 600 sleeping rooms including suites, is situated within the 2,400-acre Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort complex as is Grand Boulevard @ Sandestin, a premier shopping venue that features brand name retail stores, galleries and restaurants.

Sandestin Beach is also home to numerous events and festivals throughout the year along with award winning restaurants.


A quiet residential community on the east end of Scenic Highway 30A, Seacrest is a mixture of “old” Florida beach houses and new, “Floribbean” charm. This mostly residential beach community has traditionally been one of the quietest since there is very little commercial development. It is also home to Camp Creek Lake, one of several rare coastal dune lakes in the area.

Bordered by Camp Creek Golf Course on the north and the Gulf of Mexico on the south, Seacrest offers a variety of traditional beach vacation activities and outdoor recreation. There’s golf and tennis, kayaking and canoeing, fishing, and hiking in nearby state parks. Beachgoers can enjoy swimming, sunning, kite flying, or sandcastle building and perhaps a game of beach volleyball before watching a spectacular sunset.

In addition, the 19-mile Timpoochee Trail traverses the community allowing walkers and bicyclists easy access to nearby shops, restaurants and other activities.


Resort, village and beachfront playground, Seascape blends recreation with easy living.
