This is by far one of the best places to visit the beach. Bathrooms clean, beach clean, beautiful water. Not much more you can ask for!

This is a great beach access point with bathrooms and outdoor shower, no big buildings around to obstruct a great ocean view; there are some shelter houses to have picnics under, and the beach area is super for swimming, sunning or looking for shells!

This is a great beach destination, especially for families. There are no fees to enter or park. There is a large pavilion with restroom and changing facilities and two other pavilions for picnics. The facilities are not fancy, but they are clean and well stocked....More

We were there from 3PM-5PM today (a Sunday in late August). Thought there would be a snack bar, but if there was one it was closed. Most disappointing though was that the bathrooms (both mens and womens) were all locked up with out-of-order signs on...More

This is a great beach. There isn’t a ton of parking which means it’s never very crowded. The beach is clean and the outdoor showers are great!

This is a great place. They have bathrooms and showers and ramps all the way to the beach for carts and wagons. And of course the beautiful white sand beach. The only drawback is that it’s crowded.

My family and I had a wonderful time here. It was very clean and not too crowded. They have a pavilion that has picnic tables, an outdoor shower and vending machines. We will definitely be back.

This was our first experience on the emerald coast. The water was clear but there was soooo much floating algae! Turns out it’s the season for algae bloom so it’s not always like that. We moved farther into Destin after this park and it was...More

No dogs are allowed on public beaches in Walton County unless they are service dogs. I never saw a dog in Beasley Park. There are many beautiful dog parks in Fort Walton with access to the water. Hope this helps.

Not sure of that. I really didn’t see any pavilions.

It depends on the time of the year but I have found there is far less algae here than further down the coast (ie, Gulf Shores, Orange Beach). The water here is usually pretty clear.
