Sun, Surf, Sand, Savings and Suite Accommodations Attract Families to Gulf Coast Resort

DESTIN, FL, Feb. 15 /CNW/ - As the majority of the United States begins to warm up and dig out from record-setting snowfalls, sunny Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort on Florida's Emerald Coast prepares for its own record-breaking forecast:  a bullish spring and summer travel season.

"The amount of snowfall and ice the rest of the country received has a direct correlation to travel to Sandestin and the beach," says John Russell, President of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. "The more snow and cold, the more people are ready to escape to warmer temperatures, soft sugar white sand and gentle surf.  We call it the 'spring thaw effect,' and we are ready to help everyone trade in their snow shovels and boots for their sand shovels and flip flops." 

Already ahead in terms of reservations versus spring of last year, Sandestin credits a busy Spring and Summer 2011 to more than just record snowfall.  

Sandestin's unique "Beach to the Bay" 2,400 acre resort caters to family dynamics, a group of people at various ages who enjoy doing different things. 

For the beach purist and sun lover, miles of Gulf of Mexico beachfront and Sandestin's popular beach services await.   

"Type A (A for Active)" personalities can hit the links on one of four award-winning golf courses, have a ball on one of the 15 world class tennis courts, go kayaking, or even bicycling. 

Water sports will keep even "Techno Tween" travelers busy and off their computers with a floating water park obstacle course, YOLO Boarding (stand up paddle boarding), parasailing and fishing.    A lively social scene at Finz Pool Deck adds to the appeal.   For children ages 3-12, Sandestin has completely redesigned its exclusive Club KZ, a supervised program which includes everything including Pirate Adventures, Wet N' Wild activities, and even a new club house.
