Okaloosa County Florida


Welcome to Florida's Emerald Coast, featuring the vacation destinations of Destin, Fort Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island, home to some of the best beaches in the world.

Florida's Emerald Coast offers 24 miles of pristine white-sand beaches stretching along the Gulf of Mexico. This sand, made up of pure Appalachian quartz, remains remarkably cool even in the heat of summer, and gives the waters here their trademark emerald-green color by reflecting sunlight back up through the surf.

Delight your senses in our spectacular beaches (voted top ten in the country) and the expansive waters of Choctawahatchee Bay. Discover miles and miles of pure playground for shell seeking, sun bronzing, sand castle building, soul searching, and surrendering to sun-drenched solitude. With more than 60 percent of our lovely beaches protected by law, you can be assured that when you return it will still be the same – natural and undeveloped forever.

Experience the best fishing that Florida has to offer in the warm waters of the Emerald Coast. Sailfish, marlin, wahoo and many more await offshore fishermen in the deep blue of the Gulf, while inshore fishermen cast after cobia, bluefish, tarpon and mackerel. For those looking for a different sort of challenge, Destin, Fort Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island also feature bountiful freshwater fishing in the area’s many rivers. Famous fruitful waters are internationally recognized. The offshore shelf dips straight from Destin's East Pass to 100-foot (30m) depths within 10 miles (16km) -- the speediest deep-water access on the Gulf.

There is no shortage of things to see and do in the Destin, Fort Walton Beach, Okaloosa Island area. Our collection of local attractions and places of interest offers visitors everything from amusements to museums with themes ranging from marine to military.
