“Okaloosa Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Absolutely a beautiful place! The beaches are beautiful and all the scenery there is to take in! The hotels and restaurants are much less here than at other beaches but we enjoyed that.

“Beautiful sand and water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Stay on the ocean (Gulf of Mexico) side. Has very white sand and gorgeous water colors especially around the Destin bridge - which is a destination for boaters who anchor on the shallow side and play around in the water.

“Great place for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Okaloosa Island had a lot to offer families and couples. There many accesses to the beach, many shops, and many restaurants. There is also a board walk with restaurants and shops and its located next to the Gulfarium. There are many hotels, rental properties and a campground neaby. Okaloosa Island is located between Destin and Navarre which are great towns as well.

“Find a nearby hotel! Enjoy the beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

There is so much to see; the wharf, the pier, the beach, take in the local atmosphere and visit the Destin Harbor Walk Village just over the bridge. We spent an entire day here and came back for a half-day visit, as well.
