Azure, blue-green waters and long silky white sand beaches are no doubt a large part of why you’re planning a getaway to the stunning Emerald Coast. While there are a variety of beaches to choose from, be sure to add James Lee Park to your list.

Plan a Visit to James Lee Park Beach

James Lee Park is situated along Scenic Highway 98 in Destin. With pristine white sand and gently swaying dune grass, this destination is a place of postcards. Spend a day in the sand and sun at the beautiful James Lee Park in Destin! At James Lee Park, the sandy ocean bottom extends far into the ocean so you can explore out away from shore without having to swim. Bring or rent a beach chair and umbrella and be prepared to stay for the day along this lovely section of seashore. Swim in the tranquil Caribbean blue waters, people watch, or go for a walk along the ocean. Families with children will love James Lee Park for its beauty as well as the facilities that are available. Restrooms with changing rooms and showers are onsite, making it easy to spend the day. Pack a picnic to be enjoyed along the beachfront or at one of the many picnic tables or pavilions. If you’d rather enjoy the fare onsite, the Crab Trap Restaurant is just steps away. A nice option for the kids is the playground onsite as well for when they’re ready to take a break from the sea. Bring the family and make it a day at James Lee Park in Destin!
