If you’re trying to decide where to stay when you come to Florida for vacation, you should definitely stay in Okaloosa Island! With a quiet community, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the beauty of the area, as well as delicious food and fun things to do. Here are 4 benefits of staying in our Okaloosa Island vacation rentals:


1. Enjoy the Clean Beaches


okaloosa beachOkaloosa Island is known for the beautiful, quiet beaches on the Gulf of Mexico, Santa Rosa Sound, and Choctawhatchee Bay. The sand is clean, making it ideal for relaxing on your vacation. You won’t find that these beaches are crowded. You’ll be able to read a book, lay in the sun, or play games with your family without worrying about all the people around you. Take a walk on the beach at sunset, or wake up to watch the sunrise over the water. No matter how you want to spend your day on the beach, you’ll be glad it’s a beach on Okaloosa Island.


2. Near the Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier


Staying in a vacation rental in this area means you are close to the Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier. If fishing is one of your favorite hobbies, you won’t want to stay anywhere else! The pier stretches out 1,262 feet into the water, giving you all kinds of depth options for where you can fish. If you didn’t bring your supplies, don’t worry. The pier has rods, bait, and tackle you can rent. On an average day, you might be able to catch Spanish mackerel, whiting, or bluefish. Large game you might catch include tuna, redfish, or king mackerel. We know you’ll have a great time fishing, even if you don’t catch anything!


3. Spend Time at the Boardwalk
