Bottom Line

The Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Miramar Beach is a pretty, sprawling property with a total of 1600 rooms. It is organized like a little town that can be broken down into four resorts and 30 separate neighborhoods -- each with different decor and price range. Depending on the size of their group and budget, guests can choose between a standard hotel room, condo, villa, or town home. In addition to a village and market full of shops, restaurants, and entertainment, this resort is brimming with recreational activities: a 98-slip marina, 15 tennis courts, 19 pools, four golf courses, and over seven miles of beachfront.

Map of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort

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.

Located on a peninsula that separates the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay, Destin -- a 15-minute drive from Miramar Beach -- 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.
