Local Destin and Fort Walton Beaches

Our beachfront resort is on Okaloosa Island, located between Fort Walton Beach and Destin.  Recognized as one of the whitest and cleanest in the world, the perfect oval shape of each grain of sand makes our beach “squeak” when you walk on it.  Your chairs and umbrella are waiting.

Our Destin/Fort Walton Hotel is on the Beach

While we think our hotel on the beach is the best, feel free to check out the other local options.
