An old Florida cottage and Caribbean style community where the beach is never more than a glance away, the Crystal Beach community of Destin, Florida is an excellent place to live, invest, and retire.
Along the sugar-white beaches and emerald-green waters of the Emerald Coast, lay a small fishing village and vacation haven called Destin, Florida. Along the beaches of Destin, lay the quaint beach-side community of Crystal Beach nestled between the Henderson Beach nature preserve, Destiny development and the beach.
One of the older places of settlement in Destin, Crystal Beach has been home to settlers since (at least) the 1940’s… long before Destin became a municipality in 1985. Once home to only a few beach homes and the popular Crystal Beach pier for fishing and adventure, Crystal Beach is still a quaint community with a small “beach” feel. (picture below is the remnants of the Crystal Beach pier, destroyed in 1975 by hurricane Eloise.)
Accentuating the small beach-town vibe, Caribbean and beach cottage architecture dominates the landscape, yet a little discovering can reveal remnants of pre-1960’s style.
