Redneck Beach is located underneath the Destin Bridge on Okaloosa Island. A great spot for swimming, snorkeling, and exploring the shallow bay waters, Redneck Beach was named for the laid-back atmosphere and deep-south travelers that frequent the spot. Although the title “Redneck Beach” may appear less-than-desirable, the area is family-friendly and actually quite clean and scenic.
