Fort Walton Beach Vacation & Boat Rental FAQs

What is Fort Walton Beach known for?

Fort Walton Beach is known for the soft, white sandy beaches and for being a quieter vacation destination. It’s less popular than nearby Destin, offering more affordable accommodation options and less of a party crowd atmosphere. It’s great for older couples or families with young children who want a relaxing vacation without hoards of people on the beaches.

Does Fort Walton Beach have clear water?

The water and beaches around the Emerald Coast of Florida’s panhandle (where Fort Walton Beach is) are arguably the best in the entire state. They offer incredible swimming and sunbathing conditions, and you’ll definitely want to bring a mask and snorkel to enjoy the high visibility in the waters here.

Is Fort Walton Beach crowded?

During the Spring Break season, it’s always busy on all beaches of Florida. If you visit during the low season or one of the shoulder seasons, Fort Walton Beach can be very welcoming and not too crowded. If you visit during Spring Break and want to avoid the hoards of people on the sand - rent a boat during your stay in Fort Walton Beach to cruise around away from the crowds.

    We had a wonderful trip! The owners were very accommodating and shared a lot of helpful information about the area. We spent a little time at crab island sandbar then went cruising to see dolphins which our 4 year old loved! Highly recommend and would book again.

    Overall experience was absolutely amazing! Not only was the trio perfect, they were very accommodating to our pup. Jumped in full force when he became sick during our trip as well. We plan to come back when the weather warms up a bit and enjoy crab island during the hot summer days. Esther is so kind and welcoming! I recommend booking with them 5 out of 5 stars
