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.

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!
