Crystal Beach Destin
Destin's Crystal Beach development is appropriately named due to the composition of quartz crystal sands that have made this region of Northwest Florida known worldwide. The sugar-white shore borders the jewel-toned waters on the Gulf of Mexico. Crystal Beach Real Estate is a newer upscale residential community of single-family homes and luxurious condominiums located along Scenic Highway 98, boardering Destiny towards the east and the expansive Henderson Beach State Park towards the west.

Crystal Beach Homes
Crystal Beach Real Estate includes everything from cozy cottages to opulent beachfront mansions with prices ranging from the upper $200s to well over a million dollars. Architectural styles include Mediterranean, Victorian, Antebellum, Old Florida Style with white picket fences, wrap-around porches, and tin roofs. Many of these homes and condos provide good investment income since owners can rent them out as vacation rentals weekly, especially during the busy summer months but still relish retaining them for their use during other times of the year.
Crystal Beach Amenities
Three Crystal Beach restaurants are located right on Scenic Highway 98. At the far western end is the Beachwalk Café. The rich, award-winning gourmet food is exquisite, and “oceanfront” dining doesn't get much better than this. Views towards the west are 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 Destin's famous Harbor Docks. 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 meatloaf. It is a popular place since an outdoor patio is available for dining right next to the beach.
Crystal Beach Location
There is easy flight access to Crystal Beach since the Destin - Fort Walton Beach Airport is less than thirty minutes away by crossing the Mid Bay Bridge towards the north. Just a few blocks away is the upscale shopping village, Destin Commons. The pedestrian-friendly palm-lined retail shopping complex is complete with many designer clothing shops, specialty boutiques, restaurants, a multiplex theater, and an enormous Bass Pro Shop. 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 and family fun at the Village of Baytowne Wharf, and shopping in Miramar Beach.
