“BEAUTIFUL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Getting to the island is so easy.Peaceful but still has a lot of different attractions.Restaurants on the island are very good.But you are so close to Destin & Fort Walton Beach for more shopping and restaurants.

“Perfect vacation for whole family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

We are enjoying this awesome place right now! The beach is absolutely beautiful! We are staying at Waterscapes which had awesome pools and splash pads for kids. Our 3 year old is in heaven and so is his mama:)

“Island jewel in the gulf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Our good friends purchased a condo on Oskaloosa Island last year, we were there for 10 days @ Emerald Isle & did not want to leave, this area is quiet, beautiful clean beaches, great access to every restaurant, shopping, Publix grocery store 2 miles, only 6 miles to Destin,if your destination is Florida, don't miss this truly one of the secret jewels of the Emerald Coast

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We stayed for a full week and had a blast. Beautiful weather and a great beach! Family oriented, but we did not feel out of place as twenty somethings. FWB is a cute mid sized beach town.

“Beauty and Relaxation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

One of the best places on the Gulf coast to go to if you're not interested in touristy junk and traffic. Beautiful beaches, nice restaurants and missing the crowds of Destin and other places.
