Life on the Bay

Amazing sunsets and stunning views from every angle are found from Destin homes on the bay. This provides a perfect vantage point for taking in the natural beauty of the area. Whether you enjoy watching the seagulls swoop down on unsuspecting fish, eagles soaring above, or the menhaden busting the top of the water, these homes are perfect for you.

Since the bay is 6 miles wide or more in most spots, owners of Destin bayfront real estate enjoy panoramic and unobstructed views and often see dolphins playing in the distance, trout feeding in the grass beds or mullet jumping out of the water as they are being chased by redfish.

The water along the shores can become very shallow so bayfront houses in Destin have docks that will only accommodate small boats. You won’t have any problem keeping deck boats, pontoons, or small center consoles in your backyard and nearby marinas are available to keep yachts and cruisers.

Homes on the Choctawhatchee Bay are perfect for those looking for primary residences or second homes and provide a great place for water related activities. Traffic is never an issue as you can jump on your boat, find an amazing private beach to enjoy the day or take a short boat ride to one of the many fine restaurants on the Destin harbor.
