This area has some of the most beautiful sands of the Gulf. It feels like you are walking on flour. The sand is very clean and minimal debris or seaweed. There is not a lot of larger shells but you can find smaller ones after...More

The beaches are beautiful, with the white sand and clear emerald water you can't go wrong. Sunrise and sunset are spectacular! A lot of beach front hotels to choose from. Plenty of delicious seafood. As with most any beach during peak times there is traffic....More

A girls spring break trip to Fort Walton Beach on Okaloosa Island was terrific. Many of the hotels and condos have chairs provided on the beach meaning we didn't have to pay to rent as we did in Pensacola. The beach is flatter here than...More

A beautiful island with clear green water and Snow White sand. Smaller and family friendly. There are several waterfront hotels and restaurants and more available on nearby islands.

Okaloosa island is much more built up than you would think from reading the reviews. The beaches are beautiful but mostly lined with long rows of multi-leveled condos that make you think you are entering not a quiet beach but a booming metropolis. Without superheroes.

We stay on the island every time we visit. We just love it. Have been coming for a few years and will continue to bring our family for years to come. The quiet sugary white sand beaches and teal water is amazing.

Not sure about spring break timing. Beach is very safe, this is mostly a family type location- not the ratio of bars to other venues lots of condos vs hotel rooms! Not conducive to spring breakers for strictly partying... More
