Beach Activities, Destin
You can't go to Destin without going to the beach. In fact, the beach is probably your reason for visiting Destin. The sand is white & very fine. Destin is my favorite place in the world to go to the beach because it is so beautiful. For more pictures of the beaches in Destin, check out my travelogue.
crab hunting is one of my all time favorite attivities to do when i am at some beach somewhere in the world. its not a beach trip without a night of crab hunting and destin was a great spot for this activity.
the crabs were huge that night and they made for a lot of fun catching (even though tim let two of the biggest ones get away) dont worry none of the craps were harmed and were all returned to the water safely without a scratch.
be careful when crab hunting not to let one of those buggers get a hold of your finger. after all u are the one chasing them and they are trying to defend themselves, so when they get a hold of u, they let u have it. i guess we deserve it.
make sure to wear clothes u can get wet in, and a pair of sandles. bring some flash lights and some buckets or nets. if u have a big group u can split up and see who cant catch the most or biggest crab. it may sound silly but dont knock it until u try it. have fun and remember to return the crabs safely to the ocean
* feel free to rate this tip or any other of my tips, i am always looking to make improvements

Rosemary Beach like almost all of the Beaches on the Gulf in the Panhandle have pure white sugar sand. Unlike a lot of the beaches this one is peaceful, uncluttered, and pretty quiet.
