 Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa in South Walton, near Destin, has become a beloved home-away-from-home for countless guests. People who first traveled here for a family vacation, a romantic getaway, a wedding or a meeting tend to come back, year after year. Sandestin is among the famed beaches of South Walton, home to the storied 30A highway that follows the stretch of white sand beaches along Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast. The scenic road connects 13 charming coastal communities, each with their own unique character — from traditional beach retreats to eclectic artist colonies.
