This Destin Florida babymoon guide is packed with unique day trips, romantic evenings, adventurous afternoons, and of course, delicious food! Let’s break down the things you need to see, where you need to stay, and the things you need to eat!
A babymoon is a luxury vacation that expecting parents take, similar to that of a honeymoon! Babymoons are typically taken at some point during the middle of the pregnancy, but they can be taken later as well. The purpose is to allow the couple to have some alone time and celebrate their soon-to-be parenthood with each other. They are a romantic way to appreciate their past and ready themselves for the future!
Destin, FL is filled with relaxing activities for soon-to-be-mama’s! There are also plenty of options for couples to attend together to celebrate their upcoming newborn. Let’s talk about the must-see options for your Destin, FL babymoon!
Henderson Beach State Park is a wonderful spot for couples and single mama’s to enjoy their Florida babymoon. The park hosts numerous boardwalk areas for walking along the water. You can also walk along the shoreline with your bare feet in the sand! Consider it an exfoliating foot massage if you will! Consider visiting at sunset for a romantic evening of picnics and cheek kisses.
Harbor Walk Village is similar to a board walk, but much more small-town feel, even “homey”. The village is filled with small shops run by the locals. You can find anything from handmade soaps to custom jewelry to baby clothes!
There’s also plenty of unique places to eat at Harbor Walk Village. All restaurants there are small, family-owned locations that treat each guest like family! You can enjoy a “momjito” for a fun drink and whatever pregnancy cravings your heart (and baby) desire!
Shopping at the Destin Commons on your Florida babymoon can be one of the most exciting activities for a babymoon in Destin, FL (yes, even for the dads!). With 69 stores to shop in, new mama’s can spend hours upon hours walking the outdoor shopping area! There are 4 stores dedicated to children’s wear, but plenty of other stores that you can shop in for your newborn. I highly recommend getting some baby clothes during your babymoon in Destin, FL as there will be pieces you won’t find anywhere else!
At the very least, the Destin Commons is a great way to get out of the hotel and walk around for a few hours.
Relaxing during your Florida babymoon should be high on your list of things to do in Destin. Prenatal massage is recommended for pregnant women and it can help relieve the aches and pains of pregnancy, as well as improve circulation. Typical benefits of prenatal massage include: relaxation, improved circulation and muscle tension relief. There are a number of different types of massage therapy, from classics like Swedish and deep tissue to more exotic styles like shiatsu.
Whatever type of massage you opt for, be sure to ask your therapist about their experience and the essential oils they use. You can find my blog post on recommendations for prenatal massage spas in Destin, FL in the listicle below. I highly recommend booking your appointments in advance for your babymoon in Florida.
Located near the beach, the Henderson Beach Resort is an ideal location for couples and single moms! The hotel features beach front rooms with spectacular views of the clear waters and white and beaches. The rooms are equipped with the comfiest bedspreads and there’s a hotel bar/restaurant for the nights you just want to stay in! This resort is a beautiful option for your Florida babymoon!
Although it is undergoing renovations right now, the Watercolor Inn and Resort is one of the top rated resorts in Destin, FL. The resort is guaranteed to make your babymoon that much more romantic and relaxing. The Inn has a rather homey feel and design concept.
