John Beasley Park

One of Okaloosa Island's largest beaches, John Beasley Park plays host to hundreds of events, and thousands of beach goers each year!

Nestled just east of Okaloosa Island lodging, dining, and shopping, John Beasley Park provides easy access to Gulf-front beaches. Complete with extra-large pavilions and surrounded by natural dunes and vegetation, John Beasley Park is one of Okaloosa Island’s top wedding venues.

John Beasley Park ‘s over-sized parking lot fits over 200 vehicles, making it easy to plan events or escape for a quick day at the beach. Beach ramps make John Beasley Park one of the few spots on the Emerald Coast where disabled visitors can reach the beach without encountering steps!
