Beaches of South Walton, FL (PRWEB) January 31, 2007
After seven years in the making, the Walton County Tourist Development Council has announced the completion of the Western Walton County Beach Nourishment Project. This project restored 26,200 feet of beach on over five miles in Western Walton County, adding 75-100 feet of beach in these areas.
More than 2.3 million people each year vacation in the Beaches of South Walton. The area's local flare, unique festivals and inviting attractions persuade many to come, but most visitors will admit that their main attraction is the beautiful beaches. Regional Director of ResortQuest Northwest Florida, which includes Destin vacation rentals, Mark Steiner, agrees, "For years our guests have been awed at the expansive natural beauty of our crystal white sands and emerald green waters. They come back year after year to enjoy the Gulf of Mexico and all it offers."
The Beaches of South Walton is comprised of fourteen different beach communities and encompasses the eastern portion of Destin known as Miramar Beach. In addition to the 26-miles of beautiful beaches and crystalline Northwest Florida gulf waters, visitors can also explore powdery-white dunes, vast stands of pine forests, cool underground springs, marshlands, bays and backwater bayous.
