#EmeraldCoasting is sugar-white sand
and emerald-green water.
It’s dolphin cruises, open-air shopping and fresh, local seafood restaurants. It’s fun family vacations and a romantic spot for couples. Get a little sand in your soul in Destin, Ft. Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island, the Heart of Florida’s Emerald Coast. Start planning.
