Dine and Unwind with Sandestin

As the temperatures start to cool, we’re warming up for a memorable holiday season. Spacious accommodations, mild weather and festive events make Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort the perfect place to spend Thanksgiving with the whole family! Forget the stress, and create new traditions as we take care of everything you need for a relaxing, fun holiday.


We couldn’t mention Thanksgiving without mouth watering culinary creations! Our chefs will be cooking up a gourmet feast that can be picked up or delivered to your house or accommodations. Simply contact Terese Schott at or call 850.267.7579 to order by November 25th. If you’re looking for something different this year, look no further than the SunQuest Cruises SOLARIS Thanksgiving Buffet Dinner Cruise.

There is no better way to get in the holiday spirit than at the Village of Baytowne Wharf! Join as we kick off the season in the Village with a special showing of The Polar Express on the big screen, November 29th at 6pm. Return the next night for a chance to spot a special guest—Santa Claus! Cheer Santa on as he makes his way to Baytowne, watch as he lights the Village tree and enjoy face-painting and kids crafts! The event will end with a beautiful fireworks display.

Sports – Cheer them on and work it off!

Some compete in the kitchen on Thanksgiving, and others compete on the field. Marina Bar and Grill at Sandestin will be playing all of the big games, so you can cheer on your team with fellow fans! They will be open starting at 11 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day, and the game schedule can be found on their Facebook page. If you prefer to be in the action instead of just watch, our brand new pickleball courts are calling your name. Our pickleball courts are open regular tennis hours (Monday-Friday: 8 a.m.- 6 p.m.; Saturday-Sunday: 8 a.m.-5 p.m.), and gear can be purchased from the pro shop. Looking for a traditional holiday experience in a not-so-traditional setting? Baytowne on Ice is the perfect opportunity to dust off those skates, and get in the winter spirit. The ice rink is open until February 1st, and you can find hours here.
