Glittering Emerald Coast

A 30-minute drive from Northwest Florida Regional Airport, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort is a self-contained recreation enclave on the sun-soaked Emerald Coast. To explore farther afield, guests can drive east, reaching Navarre Beach in 50 minutes and Pensacola Beach in just over an hour.

Golf, pools, pampering

The resort sprawls over 3 neighborhoods, linked by trails and trams. Golfers can play several courses, while kids burn energy in the Blast Arcade or in the 4 pools. Acclaimed seafood restaurants draw diners to Baytowne Wharf, and guests can design their own pampering program at Spa Sandestin.

From condos to villas

From high-rise condos overlooking sugar-sand beaches to intimate lakeside villas, there’s an accommodation type to suit every couple or family. Guests looking for a community vibe choose the Village of Baytowne Wharf, which brims with shops, restaurants, and nightspots.
