Now we’ve barely mentioned our beach! The Emerald Coast is on the western panhandle of Florida that has the famed “Sugar Beach,” so called because of the nearly pure white super fine silica sand which has the consistency of sugar. These super refined crumbs of the Appalachian Mountains that have been washed down from the mountains for thousands of years now cover the beaches of the Emerald Coast and are around 97% pure quartz. This sand is unique in that it is so soft that it will squeak under your feet. Little wonder that it is considered one of the finest beaches in the world! Western Florida boasts over 300 sunny days per year. Water temps are high 80's in the summer and low 70's to mid 60’s in winter.

                          Situated in the Seascape Community, Ariel Dunes towers over the adjacent golf course and offers breath-taking views of the Gulf of Mexico as well as magnificent views across the golf course to the Choctawhatchee Bay.

                          When you enter off of Scenic Gulf Drive and proceed through the security gate, you will instantly know that you have chosen the perfect vacation destination! While pulling up in to the building's drive thru entry court and main floor lobby, you will immediately admire the expansive pools (some of the largest in Destin) which total in excess of 11,000 square feet which include several waterfalls, as well as the large adjacent deck areas and extensive landscaping. As an added benefit the enormous pools include a section that is heated as well as lots of lounge chairs.

                          Golf: Dont forget our wonderful Golf courses!

                          There are (10) Championship golf courses within four (4) miles of this condo. Each offers its own character and challenges. All are public courses with full service facilities with a restaurant, practice range, rental clubs, professional lessons and pro shop stocked to meet your needs.
