a few good spots to hit and had some items of interest from Walton to Pensacola... some shops were small while others were a true MALL full of stuff. You just need to look!
It is beautiful with the emerald green water and white sand beaches. We stayed at Hampton Inn which was close to the fishing pier. The pier was $2 to walk on but I enjoyed it so much I came back the next day. There were herons and pelicans hanging out waiting for the fisherman to throw them a catch. The... More
If you like beautiful scenic views this beach is for you. White sand squeaks when you walk. Green emerald waters dolphins in the morning. Every once in a while the dragon Speer 130 flys over head.

The Boardwalk offers shops, pavilions, restaurants, sports bars, beach volleyball, playground, and a large beach area with a lifeguard.

We LOVE Fort Walton Beach/Okaloosa Island....No crowds like neighboring destinations, due to no tall high rises. We love staying at the El Matador, at the very end of Santa Rosa, & nothing but undeveloped beach from there....Often we are the only ones on the beach :-)
The hotel is amazing. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The rooms are very clean! The manager was the best lady. She made me feel like family and treats all her guest like that and so dose her staff. I had a great time there and will be back next year and looking forward to it.
The beaches on Okaloosa Island are unbelieveable mile after mile of Powder white beaches.We visted in October 2013 and temperature was still in mid 80's F and beaches were not crowded,you could find your own private spot on the vast beaches easily.
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.
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:)
