Shopping in Crystal Beach
Crystal Beach has a remarkable, convenient location just a few blocks away from the upscale shopping village, Destin Commons. This pedestrian friendly palm lined retail complex is complete with a myriad of designer clothing shops, specialty boutiques, restaurants and a multiplex Theater. It is anchored by an enormous Bass Pro Shop at one end and a Belk's Department Store on the other. A large Publix Grocery Store and other shops and restaurants are also close by at the adjacent Paradise Key shopping complex.
From this centralized point Highway 98, known as Emerald Coast Parkway, leads west towards central Destin in one direction and out towards Sandestin to the east. This allows property owners and visitors to be a relatively short distance away from all the action at Harborwalk Village on the Destin Marina as well as family fun at the Village of Baytowne Wharf and shopping in Miramar Beach.
Crystal Beach Attractions
There is easy flight access to Crystal Beach as well since the Northwest Florida Regional Airport is less than thirty minutes away by crossing the Mid Bay Bridge towards the north. Three Crystal Beach restaurants are located right on Scenic Gulf Drive. At the far western end is the Beachwalk Café. The rich, award winning gourmet food is exquisite and ocean front dining doesn't get much better than this. Views towards the west are totally unobstructed since this spot borders Henderson Beach and offers a great vantage point for beautiful sunsets. Camille's is another Crystal Beach restaurant founded by Charles Morgan, the longtime local owner of the popular Harbor Docks of Destin. They have everything from sushi to pizza and specialize in specialty seafood served in a casual atmosphere decorated with vibrant Tuscan colors. The third restaurant in Crystal Beach is 790 on the Gulf, located at the Inn at Crystal Beach. The main entrees here include “down home cooking” with ample portions of New Orleans Cajun seafood specialties, fried catfish, chicken, a variety of gumbos and even meat loaf. It is a popular place since an outdoor patio is available for dining right next to the beach.
Crystal Beach has real estate offerings for just about everyone. The beauty of the beach here and convenient location attracts a lot of visitors from throughout the southeast. Many of these homes and condos provide good investment income since owners can rent them out as vacation rentals on a weekly basis, especially during the busy summer months but still relish retaining them for their own use during other times of the year.
