This is one of the larger public beach access points with shower houses, covered canopy areas and enough parking for a large high school. Great for those that have RV's and need more room. The guest shower and bathroom areas are usually locked at night and reopen around 9-9:30 in the morning so keep that in mind. When you come here you are close to crab island and on the beach facing the harborwalk inlet area, so views are great! No food or bars here...so bring your own and leave the beach the way you found it!

We went here with the baseball team for a family picnic. The pavilions were clean along with the bbq pits. The beach access was close and the showers were super helpful. Definitely visiting this park again.

This was one of the most beautiful beaches I have been to! Very clean and the water was exceptional! Plus it only cost my daughter and I $4 to park and enjoy for the day!

Love the Beach at Henderson Park. Boardwalk to the beach makes for easy access...and during the Summer months it's the place to be...less crowds. We checked out the camp sites and facilities, but didn't use them. Very clean and well maintained.

Henderson Beach is a nice place to spend the day in the Sun be sure and stop by Walmart and purchase a low-cost umbrella a couple of chairs to sit in small ice chest put ice in it and drinks to make your day a lot more enjoyable there is a $6 cost to enter But there is plenty of parking in a bath house to rent off we chose to go back to Henderson Beach two of the days that we were at Destin.
