As the temperatures rise and flowers bloom, Okaloosa Island emerges from its winter slumber in a burst of color and vitality. Spring is the perfect time to visit, with mild temperatures, clear skies, and a refreshing breeze. Seaspray Condominiums offer an ideal haven for your spring getaway. Take advantage of the warmer weather with long walks on the beach, water sports, and a round of beachside Croquet. Don't miss the Annual Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival (3rd weekend in May), a spring highlight featuring a lively parade, live music, fireworks, and family-friendly activities that add an extra layer of excitement to your stay. Spring holidays like Easter or Passover are also a great time to escape to a warmer climate after a long winter.

Okaloosa Island transforms into a sun-drenched playground for beach lovers and water enthusiasts when summer arrives. Seaspray Condominiums' FREE beach chairs & umbrellas for their guests (link to Amenities page) make it easy to soak up the sun and enjoy the crystal-clear Gulf waters. With temperatures in the high 80s, summer is perfect for beach picnics, volleyball games, lazy days by the pool, and paddleboarding adventures. The Okaloosa Island Fireworks event lights up the night sky every Wednesday throughout the summer at 9 pm. It is a dazzling display that enhances your summer vacation experience.   

If you are planning a beachside June wedding, Seaspray Condominiums and the gorgeous surrounding area are the perfect backdrop to an unforgettable wedding day. Summer may be the best time to visit for your dream destination wedding.


As autumn paints the landscape in warm hues, Okaloosa Island enters a season of tranquility. Fall brings cooler temperatures, making it an ideal time for exploring the area's natural beauty. Seaspray Condominiums provide a cozy retreat after a day of hiking, birdwatching, or exploring nearby parks. Fall is the perfect season for fishing in the Gulf of Mexico or inshore. The Oskaloosa Pier is a great place to watch magical sunrise & sunsets or cast a line.  

If you have never spent the Thanksgiving holiday at the beach, perhaps this is the year you show your family how grateful you are for them with a vacation. The 1, 2, and 3-bedroom vacation rental condos at Seaspray Condominiums each provide a fully equipped kitchen for cooking indoors. We also have a grilling area for Thanksgiving meals cooked outdoors. 


Winter on Okaloosa Island is a peaceful escape for those seeking solitude and relaxation. The temperatures hover in the mild 60s, offering a respite from colder climates. Enjoy a quiet stroll on the beach, take advantage of the fitness center and sauna, or engage in winter fishing, which is particularly popular during this season.  

Throughout this season, Okaloosa Island showcases its versatility with events like the Annual Christmas Boat Parade, where festively adorned boats light up the harbor, creating a magical atmosphere for all to enjoy. Escape from the cold and hustle of Christmastime with a holiday escape to paradise!
