Thousands of people visit our beaches every year, and many of them stay at Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort.

To be exact, the resort sees 550,000 visitors annually, said Mark Hodgdon, Sandestin's vice president and general manager.

With one mile of sugar white-sand beach to its credit, shops, restaurants, golf, tennis, and entertainment onsite, it's a natural choice for many.

The resort offers accommodations in four distinct areas of the property: Beachside, Bayside, Lakeside , and The Village, with more than 1,200 available rooms, condos and villas to choose from.

There are four award-winning golf clubs and courses on site — Baytowne, The Raven, Burnt Pine, and The Links.

There are more than a dozen restaurants and eateries on the 2,400-acre property.

Counting bay-front property, the resort boasts more than seven miles of water-front property, 15 world-class tennis courts, 19 swimming pools, a 113-slip marina, water sports, children’s programs, a fitness center and spa, 65,000-square feet of meeting space and a pedestrian village featuring a host of boutique shops, casual and fine dining restaurants, nightclubs and bars with strolling musicians, street performers, dancing fountains and lively festivals and events.
