Plan Your Valentine's Weekend Escape!

Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it and now is the time to plan a romantic weekend getaway to Destin, Florida. With the hustle and bustle of the holidays and the COVID pandemic, now is the ideal time to reconnect with your loved one for a quiet getaway.


Flowers and chocolates have become a common sight on Valentine’s Day, but a luxurious stay at Pelican Beach, a delicious meal and a soothing spa trip will make this Valentine’s Day truly memorable.  So this year instead of a dinner and movie night at home, make your Valentine’s Day getaway a little more romantic and one that they will never forget at the Resorts of Pelican Beach! Valentine's Day is better spent with a combination of romance, pampering and scenic views. 


Book your two- or three-night romantic getaway with our guest-favorite Romance Package or stay a little longer and enjoy savings with our Winter Escape offers. Choose from gulf-front, gulf-view or gulf side vacation condominiums.  Every condo offers a private balcony, full kitchen and spacious living areas and bedrooms.


Our Romance Package includes a beautiful bouquet of roses upon arrival, complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival, two souvenir Pelican Beach wine glasses, a plush embroidered Pelican Beach signature beach towel and eco tote bag - all perfect for sharing quiet time on the beach.

Whether planning a "once-in-a-lifetime" honeymoon with your loved one or a well-deserved anniversary or romantic getaway, our staff of "relaxation" specialists have plenty of experience in the little touches that can add so much to your romantic escape!
