Originally established in 1940 by John and Ruth Nitsos, Frangista Beach was a Northwest Florida development purposefully sited far outside of Destin.  Over the decades Destin grew exponentially, and seamlessly merged with Miramar Beach, the town Frangista Beach is now contained within.  Today Frangista Beach is the very most sought-after locale near Destin, and rightly so.  This intimate neighborhood boasts the largest selection of beachfront homes with private pools found anywhere along the Gulf of Mexico.  Centered on a refreshing community pool, Frangista also hosts a range of properties from cozy cottages and condos to massive estate sized homes. This walk-able community contains several quaint eateries and shops, but is only a few minutes drive from the areas top attractions. 

Frangista Beach Dining:

No matter where you go on vacation, finding great dining options is a must. Luckily, Frangista Beach and the surrounding area (Miramar Beach & Destin) offer a variety of restaurants and cafes to satiate your hunger. After relaxing at the beach or lounging by the pool, be sure to check out the delicious dining selections in and around this quiet community.
