“Best beach anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

The Emerald Coast has the best beaches of anywhere I've ever been. The sugar sand is fantastic. You'll love it!

“Great beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Condo buildings not as dense as in destin which makes for fewer people on the beach. Very soft white sand.

“We love this Island and want to take it back home with us!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We started our stay New Year's Eve; they had fireworks over the water. We have been here 21/2 months and have to leave soon. We love everything about this island - the quiet, natural beauty, people and easy beach walks to restaurants towards the bridge. Close to Ft Walton Beach and Destin which offer way too much to do. Already made reservations for our return next year! We'll miss it until then!!

“Great beaches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Best beaches are here: sugary sands and generally calm waters. A couple of nearby convenience stores or beach stores if you forget anything. Just remember, no alcohol allowed on the beaches.

“Beautiful beach!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We parked at the county park and walked on the beach. I could spend more time here. The sand is sugar white and the water is turquoise blue. What more do you want!
