Okaloosa Island


The boardwalk on Okaloosa Island provides a day filled with family fun for all. This public beach access offers plenty of soft sandy beach as well as fun activities and restaurants. Beach lovers of all ages have the opportunity to start a game of beach volleyball on the public courts or dine at one of Gulf-front restaurants. The Island is also home to popular local attractions including the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park and Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone, which features two mini-golf-courses, a laser maze and a 60-foot tall ropes course. 

During the summer season, Okaloosa Island shoots fireworks every Wednesday night (weather permitting).


Before heading to the beach, know the surf conditions by taking note of the colored flag system.

Double red flags mean the water is closed for swimming due to powerful rip currents that can sweep even the strongest swimmers out to sea. Stay safe, check today’s conditions on our Beach Safety page.
