Beeuutiful! We rented a condo on the beach. The beach was beautiful and the ocean was so clear and calm during our stay. There is quite a bit of traffic in this area but lots of places to eat. Will stay on the island again next year!

Came down for a relaxing vacation. Walked the beautiful white sand beaches. Great pool. Time to relax and enjoy reading and the sun. Wide variety of restaurants and things to do. Something for everyone. Shopping, sports, horse back riding and dolphin cruises. Fun fun fun. Would recommend this location for family reunions as well as vacation. Loved the time away!!!!... More

You can't beat the beaches on the Florida panhandle and Okaloosa Island doesn't disappoint. The beaches are clean, water is so clear and no crowds like other beaches we go to on the East Coast!

This is a great place to do water sports (both bay and gulf), lay on beach,visit the Gulfarium, Water park, people watch, rent a condo/hotel, eat etc without the traffic woes of Destin. You can enjoy the pier, boardwalk, Beasly park, many restaurants and a few bars.

Our drive to Destin was just a few minutes long. Avoid all the traffic and stay here. There are lots of good places to eat there without having to go into Destin and fight the traffic.

The island is beautiful!! Hated to leave. Everyone was very friendly. We stayed at the Ramada and was in walking distance to Fudpuckers and the boardwalk and pier. We had a great time ❤🌴🐬🍹

Beautiful beaches, much less crowded and less party oriented than panama and Destin. If you want to relax and enjoy some quite beach time Fort Walton is great. Just mniutes from Destin and all the night life you might want, but away from the crowds.
