Having reigned as the premier golf and beach resort on Florida’s Gulf coast for more than three decades, Sandestin Florida Beach Resort continues to top the list of beach destinations - and for good reason.

Having reigned as the premier golf and beach resort on Florida’s Gulf coast for more than three decades, Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort knows a thing or two about creating the perfect beach vacation. Whether returning for an annual week at the beach or visiting for the first time, Sandestin Florida Beach Resort continues to top the list of beach destinations.

Travelers can vacation at one of the best places in the world, with no passport required. The Northwest Florida Gulf Coast joins the coveted ranks of international dream destinations on the Frommer’s 2010 list of twelve Top Destinations in the World. Citing stunning beaches, nature trails, great restaurants, and a cozy, yet quirky, sense of community, Frommer’s makes a compelling case to include the Florida Gulf Coast among the world’s best.

Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort is “destination central” with its seven miles of beaches, charming Destin beach rentals, restaurants and a multitude of activities. Sandestin packs in value with a host of complimentary amenities including free rental of bicycles, canoes, kayaks, tennis courts; free fitness center access; free children's activities (in season) and complimentary resort-wide tram service – offered every day of a guest’s stay.

Guests can also take advantage of the Spring “Stay Three and Get One Night Free” promotion, which is good through May 26th. Summer Hot Dates and Rates – with savings of up to 30% or more – will be posted on Sandestin’s Web site, http://www.sandestin.com, beginning May 25th.

Beyond the beautiful beaches, Sandestin features four championship golf courses, 15 world-class tennis courts, a full-service, 98-slip marina with an array of water sports, a fleet of bicycles, an action-packed Baytowne Adventure Zone with a Zip line, Ropes Course, Euro-Bungy, Rock Wall, Adventure Landing Playground, and more. After a day of play, guests can even indulge in the day spa and salon featuring more than 50 professional services.

Stay a week at Sandestin and never eat at the same place twice. With more than a dozen restaurants on the Florida beach resort property, not only will guests never go hungry, their palate will never get bored! From the surfside fare of Finz Beachside Grille to the family friendly atmosphere of the Village at Baytowne Wharf, it is all within walking distance or on the resort shuttle route.

Covering 2,400 acres from the beach to the bay and everything in between, the luxury beach resort’s complimentary shuttle service is always just a phone call away. Simply pick up the house phone and request a shuttle; it will be dispatched immediately – kind of like having a personal driver. Let someone else take on the mantle of “Family Chauffeur.”

Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort’s Free Wednesday Night Concert Series features fun music and entertainment at a price that is music to your ears – Free! Held at the resort’s Baytowne Village every Wednesday from March through summer, the series showcases new talent from a variety of genres from southern rock to the legendary Florida pop/reggae sensation Heritage.

“You Only Live Once,” at least that is the motto of Y.O.L.O. board founders who developed this fast growing sport fusing surfing with paddling. Perfect for any age and skill level, standup paddling offers a whole new point of view: from paddling to Jolee Island to sneaking up on blue crabs, to dropping in at a favorite surf-break, the act of YOLO-ing or stand up paddling has evolved from its surfing roots to a far more extensive means to enjoy time on the water from a new perspective. Available at Baytowne Marina.

Forgo the standard room with two double beds. Here, the majority of Destin accommodations come in the form of studio, one-, two- and up to five-bedroom cottage, villa, and condo rentals. High-rise condominiums, townhomes, and villas include fully-equipped kitchens, living areas whirlpool spa baths, laundry facilities and more. With more than 1,500 accommodations serving up views of the beach, bay, fairways and village, Sandestin offers a variety of options.

With a cool wine bar, wonderful wine menus and award-winning wine events, Sandestin is the toast of the town for wine lovers. The award-winning Sandestin Wine Festival held each April – taking place April 22-25 this year – hosts nearly 3,000 people who gather to learn about, taste and purchase more than 600 domestic and imported wines. Now in its 24th year, this festive four-day event is considered the “Kentucky Derby” of wine events for wine lovers.

The Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport opens May 23, 2010, with new direct service by Southwest Airlines, making Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort more accessible than ever. Most major airlines are already offering affordable airfare from many markets into Northwest Florida Regional Airport (VPS) and the Pensacola Regional Airport (PNS).
