Dazzling Destin Pointe is a private gated upscale residential community located at the far western end of Holiday Isle. This is Destin's version of island living since Holiday Isle is surrounded by jeweled town waters on three out of four sides. The views from Destin Ponte Real Estate are indeed dazzling since pure white sand dunes shimmer in the sun and the emerald green gorgeous gulf extends all the way to the southern horizon. Towards the north you can see the Destin Harbor which is home to the largest charter fishing fleet in the entire Gulf of Mexico. The iconic towers of the Emerald Grande, charming Harborwalk Village and the arching Destin Bridge mark the beginning of “East Pass” which borders the neighborhood towards the west. Here the charter boats and big yachts travel back and forth since this watery passage connects Choctawhatchee Bay to the open gulf. East Pass is the only opening between Destin and the bountiful marine life of these open waters which made it “The World's Luckiest Fishing Village.” The closest other openings are many miles away in Pensacola and Panama City. All day long from early morning till nightfall you can watch the big fishing boats come and go.
The beach wraps all the way around Destin Pointe with over 3,000 linear feet of crystal white sand frontage that extends around this hallmark peninsula. The Destin Pointe neighborhood is also centered on two interior natural lakes named Caroline and Christina. These uniquely pristine, coastal dune lakes attract abundant wildlife including Great Blue Herons, snowy white Egrets, Seagulls and an assortment of wild ducks. The views are stunning across these sun dappled little lakes since they are bordered by sugary dunes topped with golden colored sea oats and the glistening open waters can be seen beyond. Rock jetties on each side of East Pass attract an abundance of colorful tropical fish and snorkeling here is a popular pursuit. Many people also enjoy fishing off the jetties when they are not swimming in the gulf, sunbathing on the beach, enjoying a picnic or walking around the neighborhood in this very pedestrian community. During the entire summer vacation season and on most major holidays, residents enjoy seeing awesome displays of fabulous fireworks light up the skies above East Pass which can be easily seen. Many often amble down to the beach with their kids, bring a picnic basket, spread a blanket, grab a cold one from the cooler and enjoy these shows from there. The beautiful beaches, shimmering lakes, landscaped parks, a kid's play ground, private tennis courts and a large community pool with a club house create a very friendly family Destin community.
Even though you feel far away from everything at the very end of this “island” you are just minutes away from Destin itself including Harborwalk Village and the marina. Fishing excursions, water recreation and the popular seasonal parties held at nearby Crab Island are just minutes away. Restaurants abound there as well along with lively bars, musical entertainment, art galleries, and boutiques. Big Kahuna's Water Park is also close by for refreshing adventure and fun amidst waterfalls, water slides, “Lazy River” rides and tubing. They also have thrill rides and a lushly landscaped miniature golf course.
