An oceanfront community in Okaloosa County on Santa Rosa Island, Destin is a busy tourist destination on a deep water inlet across from Oklaloosa Island. It sits to the west of a string of natural lands protecting some of the world’s rarest lakes, the Coastal Dune Lakes, most of which are in adjoining Walton County. They are freshwater bodies that flush out to the sea sporadically. Large bays punctuate this coast, providing even more shoreline for hiking.[mapsmarker layer=”1″]
