Complimentary daily activities for resort guests, weekly events and friendly competitions are part of a new family-focused programming initiative for 2017 spring break announced by Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort.
The resort’s plans will span a five-week period coinciding with spring breaks throughout the Southeast from March 11 through April 10 and includes events for resort guests only and events open to the public.
“We wanted to take a more positive and family-friendly approach to spring break and inform potential visitors that Sandestin and South Walton are great places to have a wholesome and fun spring vacation,” said Robert Kallmeyer, resort director of operations.
“Every day, the resort will have significant programming with the majority of it being absolutely free,” he said.
Some of the weekly free resort guest activities at the 2,400-acre resort will include: beach yoga, daily ice cream social, putt putt challenges, sand castle building, magic shows, beach volleyball tournaments, family cooking classes, family fishing tournaments, putt putt challenges, pick-up basketball games, Live Music Fridays and more.
Another favorite, which is also open to the public, are the weekly Tuesday night Luaus at the Baytowne Marina. Enjoy delicious Hawaiian cuisine, live music, a bonfire, limbo, magic show, face painting, bounce house, parrot meet and greet more. After enjoying the music, food and fun, cap off the evening with an amazing fireworks display over the Choctawhatchee Bay. For tickets, click here.
