Area Information

Crystal Beach is one of the most popular in Destin vacation beach rental neighborhoods. Crystal Beach is an approximately 300-ft. stretch of white sandy beach highlighted by the backdrop of cozy cottages and high-rise vacation homes. It is located directly on Scenic Hwy 98 or 'Old 98' as known by locals.

Known for its adorable beach cottages in a rainbow of pastels, this portion of Destin is probably the most sought after vacation location in Okaloosa County. Scenic 98 curves past a unique blend of beach homes and hot spots like The Crab Trap -- a tourist favorite! The clouds never seem to hang over Crystal Beach and the sugar white sands appear to shine a little brighter here.
