El matador is PERFECT, beach is clean, family and romance friendly, most relaxing week ever. Spend the money on the beach umbrelllas. It is tough to find perfect restaurant, but still perfect.

Went to the beach with my husband over Memorial Day weekend and was extremely impressed with the beach...but most importantly we didn't have to fight a ton of people, so I was surprised! It's the best place in the area!

Okaloosa Island isn't a "real island" but it's close! Jutting off the strip on Hwy 98 in Ft. Walton Beach, we have been to this beach several times, and it is our ultimate favorite beach in the Destin area. The beaches are snow white, the gulf water a tourquoise blue or sea green, depending on the month you vacation in, no high rises (nothing over 6 stories) and peaceful. Funky shops in Ft. Walton, and all kinds of seafood places to dine in Ft. Walton and over to Destin and in between. Being beach bums for over 30 years, all up and down the gulf coast, Okaloosa Island is a true paradise. The best rates are after mid-August and the crowds are practially gone, and you can walk into almost any resturant and get a table asap!

Water was clear and nice, weather was beautiful, white sands and not a big crowd. Couldn't have asked for more!

Absolutely gorgeous beaches! Beautiful white sand. We've been going for several years and always in August which is hit or miss with the weather. We've been rained on 50% of the time for at least 1 day during our 4-5 day stay.
