Voted #13 Best U.S. Beach by TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Award in 2021
Imagine strolling down a pristine sugar-white sand beach with more than 6,000 feet of natural scenic shoreline bordering the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Just east of the heart of Destin you can escape it all. No hotels or condos back up to the beach. Just you and the natural beauty of the Emerald Coast.
Henderson Beach State Park was established for many reasons. Not only is it a great place for weddings, family reunions, and large events, it provides protection of the area’s natural features, and the last remaining coastal scrub area in Destin.
Henderson Beach State Park is ADA. Accessible amenities include beach wheelchairs, picnic pavilions, grills, and campsites.
