Right on Miramar Beach, about 15 minutes from Destin
Miramar Beach (not to be confused with Miramar City in South Florida) is one of 15 beach neighborhoods in South Walton County, an area that encompasses about 26 miles of Gulf of Mexico shoreline and the communities of Grayton Beach, Sandestin, and Seaside.
Located on a peninsula that separates the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay, Destin is a Florida Panhandle city that draws over four million visitors each year. It’s known as “the world’s luckiest fishing village", and like many of the other beach towns that sit along the Gulf, its sugar-white sands are a popular tourist attraction.
Huntington by the Sea's 29 units sit on the white sandy shores of Miramar Beach, near Destin. Condos offer lovely views of the turquoise Gulf waters from big balconies, as well as full-size kitchens, a spacious living room area, and free DVD rentals -- but no washer/dryers. Condos are big but vary greatly in decor between units, and most have dated furniture that's showing wear and tear. This no-frills resort is appealing mainly for its private access to the beach and free beach chairs.
