We enjoy getting away to places that are less commercial/touristy and more on the quiet side. Okaloosa Island fits that well. Close enough to go to Destin if you want to shop or do the "tourist things," but plenty to keep us happy right there....More

Clear emerald color water. Able to see the fishes swimming around your feet. Better than Panama City beach and Destin. Also more quiet and less crowd. The best beach on gulf coast area with close to hotel and restaurants.

I think the Henderson inn in Destin is outstanding. They have a gorgeous big pool and spa as well. You might try AIRBNB and VRBO (vacation rental by owner). Have a happy wedding, and God bless you! You'll love Destin!
