"Great for Families"
We stayed in Beachside 1 with four adults and two children under the age of 2. It is a great family place with so much to do. My Dad enjoyed the bike and kayak rentals. The rest of the family enjoyed the beach for most of the days. We went in October, which is a goregeous time to go. On one of the nights, we have a bonfire set up by the resort. That is absolutely a must do! So much fun roasting marshmallows on the beach!

Things to Do
Places for Teens to Hang Out
Check out these teen hangouts:
What's cool by the pool?
Show off your hot new suit and strut your stuff on The Beach House Pool Deck. This is the "see and be seen" place to be. Listen to live music in the afternoons and all weekend long. Cool off with tasty treats at the Pool Bar.
The best seat in the house
As dusk approaches grab your friends and head to Marina Bar & Grill for the best spot on the resort to watch the sunset. Not yet legal? No problem, ask for a virgin version of their many creative concoctions – yummy.
Find your journal and lose your parents for some time alone and retreat to a quiet swing overlooking the bay on Jolee Island. Up for company? Plan a picnic or cookout with friends on this beautiful, five acre nature park lush with Florida scrub and pine.
Located in the Village of Baytowne Wharf. Caffe Siena is the perfect place to enjoy fresh coffee, cappuccino and pastries. Plus, try the brand new donuts and specialty cake offerings!
Village of Baytowne Wharf
The Village of Baytowne Wharf features an array of boutiques, eateries, galleries and nightlife -- not to mention a jam-packed schedule of outdoor festivals and special events for the entire family. This spectacular setting, all within the gates of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, is the perfect spot to spend a great time any time of the day or evening.
The Emerald Coast is known to possess the most beautiful beaches in the world. Our powdery white sand stretches for seven miles and is a great place to spend the day soaking up the sun, building sand castles, or taking a refreshing dip in the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Dunes Putting Course
Swing over to the Dunes Putting Course for a hole-in-one miniature golf experience. Test your skill against this adventurous par-51 course, with 18 lushly landscaped and contoured holes of fun. These challenging par 2, 3 and 4 holes measure 25 to 60 feet in length and incorporate sand traps, water hazards, fairway mounding, elevation changes and unexpected man-made "breaks."
