If you aren’t at the resort, there is no public street access. The security guard will make you turn around.

Clean by most standards, very well maintained and though out. Many bring dogs. NIce beach, trails and very kid-friendly with swings, play houses and tree-houses. Plenty of benches to rest should you wish. Nice!

This "island" is within Sandestin Resort and situated along Choctawhatchee Bay in Walton County. Jollee encompasses a very small area so unless you are staying within the resort, it may make little sense to visit. It is peaceful and typically sparsely occupied by other visitors....More

Jolee was adjacent to our resort, so it made a nice walk and is a great place to relax and enjoy the bay view. Fish were jumping every few seconds. Sitting by the water, it felt about ten degrees cooler.

I would not have visited here if we were staying anywhere other than Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort. It would have been out of the way. We stopped here to have a look around after wandering around Baytowne Wharf. If it's a hot, sunny day,...More

Unless you are staying at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, there isn't any reason to go out of your way to go here. There's nothing to see , it's just a super tiny island with a small playground. So much else to see and do...More
