The City of Destin's Harbor Boardwalk stretches nearly a quarter of a mile along beautiful Destin Harbor, providing increased access to the waterfront and preserving the harbor’s unique character.
The boardwalk project was completed in June 2012 and is the vision of the 2003 Harbor Community Redevelopment Area Plan. It includes new decking and pavers, landscaping, lighting and seating. Multiple property owners along the harbor participated in the project to add continuity along the harbor with easy access to local fishing charter boats, great restaurants and a multitude of water activities.
The future home of Captain Royal Melvin Heritage Park (map it) is located in the center of the stretch of boardwalk. Plans for this park are underway that will add a gateway to the harbor.
**City staff is currently in the process of collecting information on transient slips in the Destin Harbor.**
There are 3 transient slips at Captain Royal Melvin Heritage Park and commercial activity is not allowed.
