the beach was wonderful, and pretty. There were weddings on the beach as well, ppl were friendly. very calming to just walk the beach, or lay out for a tan, and take a nap as well. the children enjoyed flying kites as well.

Sand is sugar white and actually made of quartz. Water is beautiful, you are able to see wild dolphins at play. A nice cement fishing pier has a great view. Awesome location for families, couples and singles!

I love reading the reviews. Now first off, the review about the seaweed. You just happened to be here when the seaweed came in. This is very rarely a problem. Usually green-blue waters. The one about the Landfill. I don't know who recommended your place, you stayed, but almost all the condos here are nice. I don't understand why you... More

It was a very relaxing day. All the locals were very friendly and the prices were great for a beach community.

Very misleading. When they say they are catching all different fish, it really means maybe one. The desk persons remark was "That's fishing." No one we talked to leaving the pier caught anything either. They only skunked us once.

I was stationed at Hurlburt Field in the late 90s and lived on Oklaloosa Island in Marina Motel for several months. I was sad to see that it had been torn down and even more upset to see that the beautiful beaches I once called home were full of sea weed. I didn't even want to get in the water.... More
