We have been staying on the island for 4 years and just love it! There is no thru traffic, so the noise is minimal all hours of the day. The condos face the gulf and the sugar white beach which makes for the greatest of views. Okaloosa Island is a wonderful place to spend the winter, as we do, or... More

We rented a condo here over Christmas and were fortunate to have good weather. I appreciate that this island is not as crowded as Destin or some others I have seen. A treat was being able to walk on the shore area of Hurlburt Air Force and enjoy the shorebirds.

We enjoy okoloosa island because I Of it's beaches, clean and beautiful, so many sights to see and visit, all within walking distance. Many great restaurants, none better than the Asiago Skillet for breakfast! We always feel safe, and always feel welcomed! Come visit.

The peaceful beauty of the island and its beach is what keeps bringing us back. The white sand and emerald waters are amazing.

We have come to Okaloosa Island after a long search of accommodations. The area has a mix of private homes and condos. The area has the very white sand beach the area is known for. This area is quiet and laid back compared to Destin but still close enough to enjoy all of Destin as well. The end of the... More

We love to stay here. Less tourists. Less traffic. Good restaurants. Good hotels and resorts. Beautiful ocean view. Love walking on the pier and fishing off it. Our favorite part of Florida is right here. Paradise.
