The Henderson, a Salamander Beach & Spa Resort Dining

Dining

The Henderson, a Salamander Beach & Spa Resort has four restaurants, from elegant “gulf-to-table” seafood fare at Primrose, to casual waterfront dining at the Beach Cantina. For a sweet indulgence or a quick coffee on the go, stop by the retro parlor, Sprinkles.

Primrose – Named after the luckiest fishing boat in Destin, Primrose is a light-filled restaurant with murals of fish shoals, wicker chairs, high ceilings, and an open kitchen. Start your day with eggs, bagels, and fresh fruit on the terrace. Later, dine on blackened snapper with corn puree, pea succotash, and gnocchi, or sit at the sushi bar, watching the sushi master craft a platter of succulent sashimi.

Horizons – Sip a Salamander Crush — a refreshing concoction of Patron Silver tequila, Chambord-muddled raspberries, fresh mint, and tonic — at the octagonal bar with mesmerizing gulf views in the distance.

Sea Level Poolside Bar & Grill – Spend the day at the pool and stop by this casual grill for a brick-fired pizza or a cold drink to refuel and re-hydrate.

Beach Cantina – You don’t have to leave the beach for a laid-back lunch of fish tacos or fresh ceviche, you can wander up to the cantina directly from your sun lounger with the sand still between your toes.

Sprinkles – Treat your sweet tooth to a root beer float or a thick, frothy milkshake at this vintage-style ice cream parlor.

The Henderson, a Salamander Beach & Spa Resort Activities

Activities

Start the day with a beachside yoga class, or a work out at the 24-hour gym, and then spend the rest of the morning stand-up paddle boarding, scuba diving, or kayaking on the gulf waters in front of the hotel. Take a nap by one of the two pools, or head down to the Salamander Spa for a hot-stone massage. There are plenty of games to play too, from croquet to corn hole. The Poppy’s Kids Club is perfect for your kids, with plenty of full-day programs.

After lunch, head out on a nature walk through the scenic Henderson Beach State Park (as a guest, you get a complimentary day pass), or rent a bicycle for the day and explore the coastal Timpoochee Trail, cycling past dune lakes and through state parks. In Destin — the world’s luckiest fishing village — wander through HarborWalk Village, where you can embark on a dolphin cruise or charter a fishing boat. Watch the fishermen haul in their catch and feast on the snow crab platter at harbor-side Harry T’s.
