Beautiful beaches and great things to do

Great place with things to do for all ages of people. The beaches were beautiful. There were times when traffic was a bit heavy but well worth it.

Came down for a long weekend! The beach is wonderful, clean sugar white Sand!! Very quiet & calm! Sun rise is absolutely breath taking!! I do wish the water had been a little more clear but the kids still loved it!! This was our first January trip but I highly doubt it will be our last!

Very beautiful white sand beach. We opted not to go on the pier because there is a charge. It was a very nice day playing in the sand

Bring your own chairs and stuff during the winter. Not many people here and the beach is pristine and clean.

Beautiful white sands and excellent view if you are lucky enough to get a place right on the beach. Dolphins, terns, herons, etc. are abundant. Enjoyed unseasonably warm weather for December--70s all week we were there. Great walking to Airforce area which many do not walk as it is private but accessible. Got my exercise in walking 5-6 miles a... More

Beautiful beaches and a nice choice of restaurants to choose from! If all you want to do is walk along a beautiful gulf beach, you can do that. If you want a calmer walk on the sound side, you can do that too. If you're tired and hungry there are hotels and restaurants that range from cheap to that was... More

We have stayed on three properties on Okaloosa Island and have never been disappointed with this beach. The city keeps it swept and cleaned up. Walks are always romantic, but especially at night! Destin is great to visit, but Okaloosa Island/Fort Walton Beach is the place to stay and get away from it all!

What a great winter destination. White sands, blue skies and every activity under the sun. Super clean beaches! I tried several restaurants...All tasty. I stayed at the Ramada Inn, which was very clean, accommodating, low key and relaxing. Everyone was so nice and polite. Such a happy vibe for our family holiday break. Highly recommend over some other more pretentious... More

Wonderful place to come and stay a week. They keep the beaches clean and worth spending the day there. Or of course, get a condo and stay the whole week.
