10 Reasons to love Sandpiper Cove Condominiums in Destin, FL.
Updated: Sep 3
With Destin's Emerald Green Waters and Soft White Sands, the beach at Sandpiper Cove is always a good choice. We all love a day at the beach, and this is a good place to do it. The beach chair staff, upon request, will set up your umbrella and chairs before you arrive. All you have to concern yourself with is enjoying a day of relaxing, making new friends, kayaking, paddle boarding, or doing nothing, nothing at all. #destin
One of the best restaurants in Destin, in my opinion, is on the property of Sandpiper Cove Condominiums. Take a short stroll or golf cart ride to some of the most delicious dishes on the Emerald Coast, dishes like Grouper Pecan (more on that later), Steaks, Seafood Dishes with a Louisiana flair are all on the menu. Simply delicious. Louisiana Lagniappe overlooks Sandpiper Cove's Marina and the Destin Harbor. What a view! #finedining
3. Golf Cart Life
There is just something about Golf Carts; Wind in your hair, tan skin, shoes optional. You are on the way to the beach, listening to your favorite tunes waving and exchanging pleasantries. This is the you that you like the most. The version of yourself that you miss on a cold day in January. The you that you can't wait to get back to this Spring. Sandpiper Cove is a Golf Friendly Community. We like that. #golfcartlife
4. Marina and Canal Docking
Choices are at the heart of what makes Sandpiper Cove so special, and the boat options are a great example of this. With a Marina, a canal for pull up parking, and a boat launch, choice is the name of the game. Each has it's own set of guidelines, but at the end of the day it is one of the biggest pluses for this property. #boatlife
5. 1,2,3,4,5 Pools!
Yours truly, at one of the 5 pools. You know I am having a good day when I take a selfie. Something about a cool dip on a hot day gets your mood just right. Each pool has its own vibe. Some of my favorites are the relaxing Pool overlooking the Marina and Harbor, and of course the fun one with the Lush Landscaping. In the cooler months, the hot tub one comes in first. Choices are good. #teampool
6. Rick's Sand Trap
Located in the Pavillion on the Beach is Rick's Sand Trap. Home to the very delicious, Gulf fresh grilled fish of the day tacos. On a recent trip, I had Grilled Mahi Mahi Tacos. Yum! 2 Nice size fish tacos and a soft drink with a priceless view $10...really...$10! Frozen drinks, Bloody Mary's, Beer, Soft Drinks, Frozen Drinks, and all your traditional fare such as burgers, fries, etc. If your beach doesn't have a bar and grill, trust me you're missing out. #fishtacos
7. Pitch and Putt Golf Course
Ok I admit this isn't really on my personal top 10 (I'm terrible at golf), but had to include because so many people LOVE IT. I mean LOVE IT! This 9 hole pitch and putt course meanders through the beautiful tropical landscaping of the property and is often played and much loved. It truly makes Sandpiper Cove unique. #golfisgood
8. The Grounds
The just mentioned grounds are tropical, beautiful, and well maintained. Paths throughout the property provide for opportunities to uncover new gems. Last time I was there, I was lucky enough to see this beautiful Bird of Paradise in bloom. #myownparadise
Ok not the most fun thing to talk about, but still important. Sandpiper Cove has 24 hour security and the property is gated. Owning a second home or investment property often means not living nearby. 24hr security that is a phone call away, will give you peace of mind while you are there, and especially when you are away #safeandsound
10. Grouper Pecan
This is my favorite dish in Destin. Yes I know, Louisiana Lagniappe is already on the list, but my favorite dish deserves it's own place. Fresh Gulf Grouper, pan sautéed and topped with toasted pecans and meuniere sauce - Everyone has their own favorite. What will yours be? #grouper
