Staying at Majestic Sun in Destin

So, you’ve reserved a beautiful vacation condo at Majestic Sun and you’re all packed and ready to go! Wondering what to expect? Well, be prepared because you are in one of the best beach resorts in Destin.

Majestic Sun is located directly across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. The views are simply amazing. When you are ready for a day on the beach, crosswalks provide a safe and easy way to access the sugar white sands of Destin. Majestic Sun also offers an indoor pool and an outdoor pool and hot tub that offers views of the Gulf while you soak.  

Incredible dining options are available within walking distance of the resort, including Whale’s Tail and The Crab Trap, both of which offer Gulf front dining, fresh seafood, and great drink specials. You can also rent a bicycle or a golf cart and explore the coast in style.

As a guest of Destin Palms, be sure to enjoy our free VIP activities and go on a dolphin tour, charter fishing cruise, or play a round of golf for free – every day of your stay (excludes day of departure). Also, be sure to do a little shopping while you are here! There are two large open air shopping centers located just minutes away from the resort.

If you are still considering a stay at Majestic Sun, we have some fantastic vacation condos in Destin still available. Call 850-270-5227 and speak to one of our reservation agents now to book your dream vacation.

Turtle Tips – Help Keep the Turtles of Destin Safe

It’s turtle nesting season along the beautiful beaches of Destin and 30A from May 1 – October 3. During each nesting season, a female turtle will create four to seven nests in the sand and lay more than 100 eggs in each nest. They usually do this at night. After 60 days, the eggs will hatch and the baby turtles will make their way to the water. These turtles are precious and everyone wants to see this miracle of nature, but you have to be careful or you could interfere. Here are some tips to help keep these turtles safe.

Do not leave anything on the beach and fill in any holes. This is super important! If anything gets in the way of these turtles it could be a matter of life and death.

Don’t shine lights on the beach at night and/or use a red filtered flashlight. The artificial light confuses the turtles. Keep the beaches dark and clear.

Do not try to help. If you see turtle activity, call the Walton County Sheriff at (850) 267-2000.

Let’s keep the beaches clean and safe for these turtles and us! We hope you have a great time on the Gulf Coast and enjoy your Destin Vacation rental!
