The beach is the go-to destination for couples looking for quality time. Fort Walton Beach’s sugary-white sands, turquoise waves, and stunning tropical sunsets make for the perfect romantic setting year-round. If the beach wasn’t enough, there are many other activities that can ignite the flame between you and your loved one. Dolphin Encounters – There aren’t many activities that can compare to the magic of interacting with dolphins. The Gulfarium offers the unforgettable experience of entering the dolphin’s world. These interactions usually comprise of small groups, so they’re perfect for intimate couple time. Stingray and sea lion interactions are also available. Or, for a more adventurous feel, try a private dolphin watching cruise. Dolphin sightings are a common occurrence near Fort Walton Beach, and the clear emerald waters make it easy to spot the graceful creatures. Okaloosa Island Boardwalk – There’s just something about a great boardwalk that makes you want to hold hands. Whether it’s shopping, dining or beaching, there’s always something for him and her to enjoy. And nothing beats watching the sun go down at the end of a pier in the arms of your other half and taking a moonlit stroll down the beach afterwards. The Biking Trails – Winding past dune lakes, state parks and beach access points through several charming beach neighborhoods, there’s no better way to get “up close and personal” with South Walton than a bike ride along the Timpoochee Trail. Not only is it a great workout, but the 18.6 mile ride makes for a great bonding experience. Couple’s Massages – there are several massage services available that can put together a package that both of you will enjoy. Have the service come to you to really add to your emerald coast vacation experience. There’s no better way to relax while you enjoy the sun and waves. We highly recommend A Day Away Spa. Couple’s Parasail – This is not your typical flying experience. Taking off is the fun part, but once you’re in the air, it’s completely quiet and peaceful. After traveling 500 feet into the air, the view overlooking the emerald hues of the Gulf is nothing less than breathtaking. Most packages offer pictures and videos, so you can relive the memory again and again. Champagne Hot Air Balloon Excursions – If parasailing isn’t high enough for you, take advantage of Florida hot air balloon rides. Private rides are available when you want to have the basket all to yourselves while taking in the extravagant views without any distractions – except maybe each other.
