Great time fishing. The price is low and we had fun fishing and enjoyed the dolphins. Good in morning and evening.

One of our favorite places to vacation! The beaches are always gorgeous and the pier is a great place to go for fishing.

We stayed on the Bay side so we used the public beach access #2 to get to the beach. This access had showers and restrooms. Once on the beach this area had open space that didn't include all the typical umbrella rows from the near by condos. This gave us space to set up our own beach shelter and chairs.... More

Stayed at The Breakers. Loved it. The entire beach area has beautiful white sand, is clean, well attended and enjoyable. Not a lot of things to do, just mostly the beach, which was what we were looking for. Very pleasant stay and will go again.

Beautiful beach. It wasn't too crowded, the area was very family friendly. God to see dolphins swimming! Too many jellyfish!

Loved the white sand beaches and emerald water! Good choices for restaurants in and around the island. Only con~ the empty lots need improvements which would make the island more aesthetically pleasing.

We're from Texas, so it doesn't take much beach to impress us, but Okaloosa Island had beautiful sand and nice surf. The only problem was with all the algae. We dubbed the greenery "sea boogers" because of how they looked. I'm still trying to get them out of my swimsuit. Otherwise? Just lovely.
