The Destin Pass
Destin is located on a peninsula separating the Gulf of Mexico from Choctawhatchee Bay. At the western tip of the peninsula is East Pass (also known as Destin Pass), separating it from Okaloosa Island to the west. East Pass is the only outlet of Choctawhatchee Bay into the Gulf of Mexico. Because of this, it's a popular spot for boating and other water recreation. The Destin Harbor, the Destin Pass, Norriego Point, and Crab Island are sentimental to locals and tourists alike. Indeed, it's one of Florida's most beautiful destinations. Although only accessible by boat, Crab Island is one of my favorite swimming spots during high tide when the water is perfectly clear turquoise. I also like taking our kids to Norriego Point to swim. In my opinion, Norriego Point is the best place to watch the sunset and to watch fireworks! If you've never been to Destin, here are a few photos so you can get the idea...
As mentioned, this area is sentimental to so many people. That's why our friend Katie commissioned this piece:
