We love this park and beach! We visit Henderson every time we are in Destin. The beach is phenomenal and the $6 entry fee helps keep the immense crowds away. It’s our favorite!

This is the best beach I have ever been to in my life. It's clean and the view is beautiful. It was crowded but I found a great parking spot. Definitely a great place for families.

What’s not to love about soft white sands, crashing waves, the emerald and blue waters of the gulf! Such a lovely beach!
