My family stayed at a hotel on the beach. It is a short drive into Destin and a more laid back atmosphere. LOVED IT!

Sugar white sand, emerald green ocean, clean, quiet. A relaxing place to spend the day and unwind with family and friends.

Okaloosa Island will not allow high rise condos so you don't have to crawl over people to get to the water. They will ask boisterous people to keep it down. More of a family atmosphere....

I love this place however this go around the algae is so think it's gross to think about swimming in the ocean.

Crystal waters, white sand and family friendly! We will definitely come here again! The water was clear and warm. We were there on a Saturday and it still wasn't overly crowded. Very enjoyable day!

Nice, peaceful place to enjoy the beach. Not too big of a island though. The only downside is that their is 5-6 different strips clubs at the entrances to the island.

I loved it! The beach was beautiful and it was quieter and not so touristy as Destin; however, you are only a short drive from all the things to do and restaurants in Destin. We stayed at Emerald Towers West. We very much enjoyed our condo and would stay there again! De
