The Most Exciting Family Activities in Sandestin

Land Activities

sandcastle30A is a wonderful playground for families with a lot of kid-friendly activities. The biggest perks of this destination is by far its gorgeous scenery and the variety of outdoor adventures it has to offer. Obviously, one of the greatest outdoor activities is to go to the beach! Mom can relax on her towel with a good book while dad goes out swimming with the little ones. You can also build sandcastles together and enjoy a picnic under the umbrella. Nothing tops the memories of a sunny beach day with your loved ones.

Water Activities

Another fabulous way to have fun with your family outside is to hop on a dolphin cruise! Get an up-close look at these friendly creatures as you sail on the turquoise waters of 30A. Shell Island Cruises offer day and sunset tours that are fully narrated. Tickets only cost $34 for adults and $12 for children. 

You can also enjoy the water by taking your children or parents on a deep-sea fishing excursion. Sandestin is known to be one of the best fishing spots in Florida, so take advantage of it! With luck and skills, you’ll catch some grouper, triggerfish, shrimp, and even flounder.

Evening Entertainment

We know your kids need their sleep, but while on vacation on 30A, let them enjoy a bit of the nightlife with you! One of our favorite places in Sandestin to recommend to families is the Village of Baytowne Wharf. During the spring and summer, they regularly offer free events to the public, like Sunday Night Cinema, fireworks over the lagoon, as well as concerts. They also have great activities for children at the Adventure Land Playground and Adventure Zone, including ziplines, slides, climbing walls, and even an arcade and laser maze!
