Beautiful sandy beaches for relaxing on, clear water for swimming and plenty of fishing areas. A really great place to go for a family day out

This is our first time on Okaloosa Island, and it's been a very fun visit. Lots to do. Beautiful water and sand. Beautiful condo. We did parasailing in Destin, took in the Gulfarium (fun!), Goofy Golf, eating out at local restaraunts, lots of shopping, boardwalk, etc.... But it is considerably more crowded than we expected. Very busy place. The traffic is unreal. People out at all hours. Like a mini Destin. We prefer quieter and calmer locations, so this was a little too crowded for us. But if you like to be right in the middle of the action, with just minutes to anything, then you'll probably love it here. Lots to do, and beautiful.

Loved the public beach access at Beasley. No crowds, lots of room to spread out as compared to the hotel / condo private access. Not as many people playing in the water near the public access as in the hotel area. Beautiful water, clean sand, well kept facilities

Nice place to stay for a beach vacation and avoid the crowds and traffic in Destin - however, Destin is only a short drive away if you wish to travel there for the restaurants or harborside bars.

This is a great thing for folks who want to fish but do not want to have to purchase a license just for one day. You do pay to fish or even to walk the pier, but it is so well designed and the kids will have a ball. No worries if you do not have poles or bait, they have them for rent when you enter on the pier. Locals are happy to share stories with you how to fish. Whatever time of day you decide to go, you can come and go whenever you want up until midnight the day you go.
