It nice running or walking around in the white sands. The breeze from the Gulf of Mexico keeps the beaches cool and comfortable. It's best to go when the Spring Break crowds are gone.

This is a beautiful setting. Far more than I expected. I will return throughout the summer and fall. Restaurants easily accessed and family oriented,

We picked an excellent time of the year to come. Weather was perfect and beaches weren't crowded. Okaloosa Island is not near as crowded as Destin, but close enough to drive in a matter of minutes. You're close to all the restaurants and other attractions,...More

White sand, emerald waters and uncrowded beaches. What else could anyone want. Granted, we vacationed here in the spring but the laid back feel of the island will make you sad to go home.

I've been here before with family and even friends but this time I came with my husband. We just love the atmosphere of the island. There is plenty to do without being overcrowded. The beaches are clean and beautiful.

We came for the weekend and can't wait to book our next visit. There are a lot of great attractions. We went to pure spa and Cattywampus dolphin tour! Both where excellent experiences! The beach is amazing!

I think the Henderson inn in Destin is outstanding. They have a gorgeous big pool and spa as well. You might try AIRBNB and VRBO (vacation rental by owner). Have a happy wedding, and God bless you! You'll love Destin!

I think it’s an off and on thing that isn’t predictable. We have been there and had no problems and then been there and had a few bad days. Overall you can’t beat the white sand and green ocean no matter what!!
