Saltwater, Coastal Dune & Fresh Water Fishing

Welcome to fisherman's paradise!  There is excellent fresh water and saltwater fishing in this area.  You might even see some dolphins while you fish!

Topsail Hill Preserve offers freshwater and saltwater fishing

A fishing license and your favorite gear is all you need to fish in a pristine coastal dune lake. Catch bass, pan fish and freshwater catfish in these fresh water lakes. You can also catch saltwater fish - pompano, red fish, Spanish or king mackerel, more - on 3.2 miles of secluded beach.

Deep Sea fishing

Charter your own boat for a fantastic fishing adventure. There are several good charter services in the area.  One of the closest is Lil' Lucky of Destin, located right here in Miramar Beach on Horseshoe Bayou.  

Piers that are popular with people and dophins

Okaloosa Island Pier is a favorite with locals, tourists, and dolphins!  It's a great place for dolphin viewing, and great place to catch big fish. 

The pier extends way out into the water, offering access to pompano, sheepshead, squid, whiting, bonita, redfish, king mackerel and more.  Check out their Facebook page for daily updates on what's being caught.

For the more adventurous, the Destin East Pass Jetties also offer good fishing and spectacular views.  Be aware - the jetties are made of huge rocks, and there is no path on them.  You can learn more about them on the Fishing Destin Guide website, which has detailed picture instructions about where to park and how to get to the jetties.  Note: if you want to park close, get there before 8AM.

Loved the location... designer mall, great restaurants

Mainsail 131 was as gorgeous as the pictures in their review..the views, furnishings, and amenities were beyond our expectations.

Loved the location...having designer mall across the street and access to great restaurants. Kudos to owner for going over and beyond to return my hanging bag that we left at the condo! We really appreciate all the help by everyone to make our stay the best!

Took our 3 teens... best vacation ever!

We took our 3 teens on our family's first true vacation in years. The consensus was that it was the best vacation ever! The views of the beach and water were spectacular. The area was great! There was ample room that we weren’t on top of each other. We loved how close we were to the beach. We watched our kids play soccer on the beach while we sat on the balcony enjoying a nice breeze and glass of wine listening to the waves.

I seriously didn’t want to leave. It was wonderful to roll over upon waking up and see the beach and waves from the bed looking through the floor to ceiling slider in the master bedroom. The included chairs and umbrella were a dream after getting fried the first day we went to the harbor walk to parasail and snorkel. Kitchen was well equipped, bedrooms were big and had closets and plenty or drawers. The place was clean and decorated lovely.

They had shuffle board and tennis available. The pool looked nice although we spent all our time on the beach. We were right by the grocery and Dollar General for snacks and beach stuff. We can’t wait to return! I barely got home and started looking at the calendar for next year.

True ocean gulf views... convenienly located

This is a beautiful condo. You will not regret staying here. The owners were very friendly and easy to deal with, and the property itself is just perfection. We stayed here with our 2 boys aged 8 and 5 years and they both loved it too. The views are spectacular - if you want true ocean gulf views, this is the condo for you. The beach is in pristine condition, too.

Mainsail condos are conveniently located near shopping and restaurants and outside of the very busy center of Destin proper, and this is the best one we have ever rented. If you are looking for a beautifully appointed condo with amazing views and easy access to the beach, this is the place for you. We have visited the Destin area several times and this is by far the best place we have found to stay.

I wish we could come back every year! We definitely hope to stay in this lovely condo again in the future. It made a wonderful family vacation even more special! Thank you.
