We have two kids under 3, and even with it being a crazy spring break week, the beach was still perfectly clean. Gorgeous water, endless white sand. You could sit anywhere and have a good view. Lots of space! Beats Panama City Beach hands down!

We came to Destin for a family vacation and stayed 1 block from the beach. We spent every day in the sun and surf with the kids and came back refreshed.

I know you cannot take them on Crystal Beach and the other person who said Mirrimar Beach was incorrect. You cannot take pets on that beach either. I am not sure of any beaches that are dog friendly.
