BEACH BONFIRES
Beach Bonfires are only permissible in Walton County (not Okaloosa County) and require a permit. The easiest way to have a beach bonfire is to contact one of the many businesses in the area that set them up. If you would like to plan a bonfire yourself, you must obtain the permit yourself. More info here.

SAFETY
Familiarize yourself with the beach flags, rip current safety, and sea turtle protection

Beach Flag Color Meanings for Destin Florida

No matter how good of a swimmer you may consider yourself to be, pay close attention to the beach flags and be on the lookout for rip currents. When there is a double red flag--stay out of the water and keep
children out of the water as well!

Rip Current Safety - How to Escape a Rip Current
 

Sea Turtle Protection - Clean, Dark, Flat, Save the Turtles
Sea turtle nesting season is May-October, but it is best to practice "Clean, Dark, Flat" year round to protect our beaches, the environment, and other marine and wildlife!
