Top 5 Summer Beach Moments You Won’t Want to Miss

It’s just not summer without a trip to the beach. Why? Because while you can visit a cabin in the mountains or take a trip to the lake, you’ll miss out on these magical summer beach moments.

Feel the soft sand on your feet.

There is no substitute for the feeling of stepping onto our soft white sand that actually squeaks when you walk on it. Whether you’re seated or walking, the feeling of the warm soft sand brings a wave of relaxation. Then, cleanse your mind, body and soul with a long leisurely walk down the coast. It’s a great way to clear your mind and feel rejuvenated when your return to chair. 

Watch a beach sunset.

Sure you can watch the sunset anywhere in the world, but there is something special about spending time with family and friends in the sweet, salty summer air as the sun sets, creating a majestic sky filled with color. The daily sunset celebration signifies the end to another amazing day at the beach. (And once it is dark, grab your turtle safe flashlight and watch the ghost crabs dart around grabbing dinner.)

Dine on fresh seafood overlooking the water.

Everyone has a favorite South Walton or Destin restaurant that requires a return visit each year. Whether it’s Harry T’s, Dewey Destin's or Brotula's Seafood House & Steamer on the Destin Harbor or a coveted location overlooking the beach, such as the Crab Trap, Pompano Joe’s, or Whale’s Talil on Scenic 98 or Vue on 30A or Bud & Alley’s on 30A, summer won’t be the same without dining on succulent fresh seafood from the Gulf accompanied by your favorite appetizers and dessert.

View marine life.

The fun part about encounters with nature is that each one is different. Whether you watch the dolphins playing from shore, take a dolphin cruise or visit the Gulfarium to observe the Gulf’s resident marine animals, each and every sighting of a bottle nose dolphin is special. Some things we appreciate about dolphins is that they are smart, social animals that enjoy playing in the surf of boats and seem to love an audience. While you’re at the beach watch for fish, sea turtles, sting rays, and other marine life.

Take your annual beach portrait.

There will be an empty space in the photo album without this annual tradition. By capturing memories through a beach portrait, families and groups of friends document a moment in time that is irreplaceable. The frame worthy photo provides a constant reminder of the amazing week you spent at the beach.
