As a career military officer I have either lived or visited every well known beach in the continental United States. I consider the beaches between Destin and Pensacola FL with out a doubt the most beautiful in the states and Okaloosa Island is clearly the center piece. With clear blue waters, pure white sandy beaches and mild temperatures one could... More

We just returned from our vacation here and it was awesome! We will definitely return. There were 7 of us that went together including one child age 7. The beach here was beautiful white sand, very clean and not that crowded. The waves were a lot of fun and I enjoyed running on the beach. I did learn I needed... More

Really Pretty. Warm Water. Lifeguards. Family Friendly. It was a bit trashy this year. As in Trash on the beach everywhere. Very Disappointed. If I didn't love this area, I would have given only 3 stars!

Went here for the first time last weekend with my 1 year old 9 year old, and it was wonderful to walk around, pick any restaurant to have dinner and take a beautiful walk along the boardwalk or beach. It was nice to sit and relax and have some icecream while my older son can play on the playground. The... More

Sugar-white sand, crystal clear water, never too crowded. Wish I still lived across the street. Love Okaloosa Island.

This is one of the most beautiful places on earth! It was wonderful waking up to the beautiful sunrise everyday. It was also a nice place to unwind at night with a nice glass of eine. This is now one of my favorite vacation spots!

Came here with the wife and four teenage boys, all of us had a great time. Okaloosa is a little slower paced than some of the nearby tourist destinations, but lively enough for a great time. It is close enough to "touristy" cities that nightlife is no problem. We'll be back!

As we walked on the beach we could smell something terrible. We unload our things and walk to the water. The shore was lined with dead fish and the water was full of green slimy stuff. Between the condo and the beach this was the worst vacation ever! This was our first family beach vacation to Florida and it was... More
