June White Decker park provides beach access to the Gulf of Mexico from Scenic US Highway 98 adjacent to the Silver Shells Condominiums.
The park includes 1,000 or so feet of free public Gulf of Mexico shoreline ideal for sunbathing and swimming. The beach is bordered by the private roped-off sands of neighboring resorts and hotels. As you might expect, this little beach can get crowded quickly, so if it’s possible plan on arriving early in the morning and staking out a spot.
A fan favorite for Destin restaurants is The Back Porch which is adjacent to the beach at 1740 Scenic Hwy. 98. Several other restaurants and shops are located nearby.
