Simply stated, Destin is paradise. In June 2017, Destin Beach Tourism was excited to announce that the U.S. News & World Report named Destin as the #1 best beach town in the state of Florida! Destin’s white-as-snow quartz sand and its emerald-colored warm waters can’t be beat. And, if you’re looking for parasailing in Florida, look no further.
So, what’s the best beach in Destin FL? Without further ado, here are some of the top beaches close to Destin FL that you don’t want to miss, especially if you are looking for parasailing in Destin:

When you’ve just spent a day at the beach, head to the Destin Harbor. We like to go around 4:00 p.m. when the fishing vessels are coming it and they hang the day’s catch out on display. This is where Just Chute Me, the largest parasailing company on the Emerald Coast, is located. The boardwalk here also boasts the best seafood restaurants around!

If you get hungry or thirsty, there’s even a snack bar floating out in the middle of the intercoastal waterway here and the U.S. Coast Guard station is nearby.

One of the many Gulf front public parks in the area, this beach is gorgeous! It’s situated right by the Crab Trap Restaurant which comes in handy if you want a cocktail after a day at the beach. And, if you have a baby or an elderly person with you, you can rent umbrellas here, too.
