This was such a wonderful place right on the beach! You are never far from a grocery store, pharmacy, beauty salon, outlet shopping etc. Would definitely return to this area!

Uncrowded compared to other places like Destin, but the same powder-soft sand and beautiful water. More family friendly, too. Compared to Destin, it's less expensive to stay. Everything is within walking distance pretty much on Okaloosa Island. Great restaurants, condos, liquor store, grocery store right across the bridge with a sidewalk for walkers, shops, etc. We plan to stay on... More

Some of the restaurants were very overpriced, but the food and service was good. The beach is very nice and clean.

We stayed at blue dolphin condominiums for the weekend for my daughters seventh birthday this past weekend. It was amazing. We had such an amazing time. I love the fact that when you use this condominium that there is no check in and check out counter, so you are not struggling with your little ones when it is time to... More

Drove through here between Destin and Navarre. On the way back we stopped at the pier and walked around a bit. This is a neat place that I'd like to spend more time at next time!

I've been coming here for 8 years for spring break. The beach is wonderful and not too crowded. There might be a little more to do in Destin, but the crowds there can be too much. Destin is a short drive if you must go.

I highly recommend the beaches when you 1st cross the bridge from Destin onto the island. There are no restrooms or restaurants there, but there also was not a crowd and they were so beautiful, the water took my breathe away. If you put a blindfold on me and put me here, I would have thought I was in a... More

We traveled here for a quick overnight family vacation and had the BEST time. Our kids have not been to the ocean very much and we wanted to make sure we went to a great beach without a whole lot of crowds. This beach fit the bill perfectly and exceeded our expectations. Parking was free and super close to the... More

It is the same view I've experienced since 1963, and it never gets old. The emerald green waters and snow white sand give you a taste of paradise here on earth. A lot has changed since the '60's. Now there are wonderful places to stay on the beach, and terrific little restaurants as well. Ususally a bit cheaper than Destin,... More
