Which Destin Bayfront Community is Right for You?
Destin bayfront homes can be found in gated communities, have small or large lots, and be as large as 15,000 square feet or more. Some of the most popular neighborhoods are:
Kelly Plantation bayfront homes favor Mediterranean architecture and are finished on the luxury end. It’s pretty common for these homes to have a swimming pool, fitness room, media room, and immaculately landscaped lots. Buyers expect to find high ceilings, crown moldings, granites, exotic flooring, and other appointments. View listings for bayfront homes in Kelly Plantation
Regatta Bay is another gated bayfront community in Destin. Like Kelly Plantation, these homes have the same high end finishes and the neighborhood has around the clock security and residents enjoy access to swimming pools, tennis courts, fitness centers and other amenities.

Emerald Bay is another gated community overlooking the bay in Destin and is considerably less expensive than Kelly Plantation and Regatta Bay. The lots are slightly smaller but the views are fantastic. View Listings for homes in Emerald Bay
Indian Trail bayfront homes are preferred by those looking for an estate. These lots are close to an acre in size and allow owners to build compounds with guest homes, detached garages, and other accessory buildings. These homes are typically found along Indian Trail and Calhoun streets in Destin. View Listings for homes in Indian Trail

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.
