The Emerald Coast of Florida is one of the most beautiful places to visit. The crystal-clear water and powdery white sands offer a quiet haven of beauty and relaxation. With all the beauty our beaches have to offer, we’re not really sure why you’d want to visit anywhere else! We’re conveniently located directly on Okaloosa Island and within a short drive to both Fort Walton Beach and Destin. Within mere minutes of your Fort Walton Beach vacation, you can find yourself in the midst of some of the best restaurants, shopping, and nightlife that the Florida Panhandle has to offer. A short five-minute drive delivers you to one of our favorite local places to grab a bite to eat: The Gulf Restaurant. Offering a wonderful, relaxed atmosphere and amazing food, you’ll find yourself wanting to visit this hip little spot more than once. When it’s time for entertainment, there are plenty of local events from which to choose. We keep our website updated with current events for you to stay informed! From state parks to eclectic shopping, there’s always things to do. Our wonderful mild temperatures at this time of year allow for great adventures that are to be had outdoors. With cooler temps and lower humidity, your days can be spent building sandcastles and hunting ghost crabs as you leisurely stroll the shoreline. When it’s time to entertain the kiddos, we’re located within a few miles of the Gulfarium and Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone. If you prefer, you can skip all the hub-bub, kick off your shoes, grab a pair of flip-flops and a beach towel and head for the sand and enjoy the scenery and peaceful sounds of the Gulf. Our gorgeous turquoise waters and sugar white sands will steal your heart. You’ll notice as you walk barefoot in the sand, you’ll detect a slight squeaking noise. Visitors often wonder why that happens here. Our sand is made of quartz crystals that washed down from the Appalachian Mountains many, many moons ago. As we walk along the beach, the sand particles rub against each other, and the air between them must escape, causing the whistling sound. So, as you walk along the beach, it sounds as though the sand is singing to you. Our beautiful, crystal clear Emerald shores will welcome you back time and time again. There are many days, the water is so flat and clear, it appears to be a swimming pool. There aren’t many places that you can watch the rays and dolphins frolic in the water from the shoreline. Words aren’t enough to describe the beauty. You’ll just have to see for yourself: Check out our Live Beach Cam. When you book your reservation with us here at the Breakers, you receive many complimentary activities. You’ll find a ton of fun expeditions to fill up your days. So, go ahead, book your stay, and plan on having the time of your life! No matter what you choose, our staff is here round the clock to cater to you and provide the best vacation possible. We look forward to having you stay with us! The memories are here for the making!
