This condo is located on the third floor which is the perfect height. Plenty high to see over the sand dunes and not so high you get a nose bleed!. This is a small 42 unit condo complex. No standing in line to jump in the pool like the big complexes. No trying to catch a ray of sunshine or a glimpse of the ocean sitting in the third row of umbrellas. Seldom are there more than 8 to 12 umbrellas along the beach in front of this complex. It's like your own little private piece of the beach.
The fishing pier is located only about a 4 mile walk east along the beach. Wyndam Resort's outdoor restaurant and bar are just about a mile walk east along the beach. And just about a mile walk west along the beach is the end of all development on Okaloosa Island. Enjoy your own private walk for miles with just you, the ocean, and the sand!
Feel comfortable walking, or even letting the kids walk, just a few blocks down quiet Santa Rosa Blvd to a Tom Thumb convenience store for snacks. A few more blocks and you're at the intersection of Santa Rosa Blvd and Hwy 98 where there are 3 gift shops. Don't try that on hwy 98 in Destin!
You are less than 2 miles from the Black Pearl, Crab Shack and the Gulfarium. You can get to Crab Island and McGuires Irish Pub quicker than you can from most condos in Destin and you are only about 10 minutes from Big Kahuna's Water Park.

Why Emerald Towers West: The location is quiet but still close to many attractions. Santa Rosa Blvd. has very little traffic, especially at night when you are ready to kick back and relax. Emerald Towers West is a relatively small complex, having 42 units, which results in fewer people along the beach directly in front of the building. Located about 3-4 blocks away is a convenience store which is handy for purchasing items such as ice, snacks, or soft drinks. However, a full service grocery store is less than a 5 minute drive back to the Miracle Strip Parkway. There you can find numerous restaurants, souvenir shops, clothing stores, historic downtown Fort Walton Beach, the Gulfarium, and the popular Okaloosa island fishing pier. If you desire to visit the attractions in the Destin area, the drive takes only 5-10 minutes, depending on the Hwy 98 traffic.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Enjoy relaxing and fun-filled days on the beach. After dark, grab a flashlight and hit the sand to hunt sand crabs. Reserve a private chartered deep sea fishing trip or join a party fishing boat. Big Kahuna’s Water Park in Destin is always a hit with kids of all ages. Indoor activities include shopping at the Santa Rosa Mall in Fort Walton or taking in a movie at one of the local theaters.
