The spectacular coastal paradise of Destin Florida, with miles of pure white sand beaches, sparkling emerald surf, freshwater estuaries, protected wetlands and countless waterways to explore, is a natural wonderland, better than any man-made amusement park.
With an endless array of unique indoor and outdoor activities, combined with shopping, dining and live entertainment, there is guaranteed to be something for everyone in your family, regardless of age or ability.
For a laid back afternoon, enjoy playing a fun round of golf at some of the most beautiful, prestigious courses in the country or perusing the shops and eateries at Silver Sands Outlets, or Destin Commons. Take the family down to Destin Harbor to watch the sunset and spot the dolphins following our fishing crafts to port. While you’re at it, chat up one of the many captains who operate state of the art fishing charters, who can take your crew out for some spectacular sport fishing, to reel in Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Marlins and more, on the Gulf.
One of our favorite things to do with the family is collecting sea shells along our gorgeous private beach. Our beautiful, pure white shorelines are particularly bountiful and are home to a wide array of sea life including corals, sea fans, crustaceans, sea snails, mollusks and more.
With over 500 different types of shells, all different shapes, colors and sizes, along with shark’s teeth, coral, and other gifts from the deep, the most common way to find these mementos of your time at Silver Shells and the Emerald Coast, is to just walk down the silky soft sand, particularly after a storm.
Another great way to find great seashells is by snorkeling, and when you stay at Silver Shells Beach Resort and Spa!
Your family is just moments from some of the best snorkeling spots in Destin. Our concierge services can help arrange time for your family with a licensed, safety certified snorkeling tours which will provide mask, snorkel and fins, as well as expert guidance, access to premium diving spots, and knowledge of local species.
When you have found some real treasures, and after you hang up your fins, you’ll be pleased as punch to be heading back to the Silver Shells Beach Resort and Spa to relax.
Sit on your private balcony and sort your shells as you watch the sun go down listening to the sounds of the surf mingling with the live music drifting up from our seaside Sandbar, serving yummy handmade cocktails and light bites.
Our suites are appointed with fine furnishings, spacious living areas, cozy bedrooms and oversized bathrooms as well as fully equipped kitchens for cooking up an intimate meal of freshly caught seafood, private patios overlooking breathtaking views of the Gulf, access washer/dryers, high speed internet, and large, flat screen televisions with movies on demand and more!
Spend the time between the beaches and other activities, lounging around our unbelievable tropical lagoon inspired pools, with dancing waterfalls, surrounded by lush tropical foliage and fragrant flowers of jasmine or magnolia. Or spend a day being pampered at our cutting edge Spa where you can arrange for a private massage right on the sand.
