Some of the beach accesses in Walton County have a wheelchair provided at the public beach access - just ask the lifeguard. Know for sure that the Miramar Beach Access by Pompano Joes has one.

There is a huge wheelchair ramp right by the bathrooms in the parking lot.

You might also check with the fire station in Crystal Beach. I have seen a family using a beach wheelchair in that area.
