Looking for Paradise? Here it is at the El Matador! Has to be the most sought of family vacation resort on the Emerald Coast. A secluded condominium nestled between the beautiful white sand dunes and the sparkling Emerald Waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
El Matador is truly a beach resort. Just two miles down Santa Rosa Blvd at the end of the Island you will find us – secluded but still just a few minutes to all the amenities that Destin and Fort Walton Beach have to offer. Just six miles down Hwy. 98 you can enjoy Destin – “ The Worlds Luckiest Fishing Village” – charter a private trip or take the kids out on a group boat and catch dinner. While in Destin enjoy fine restaurants, shopping, and golfing on some of the best golf courses in the Panhandle of Florida. Hard to believe that you might need a day off from the beach but if you do take the family to Big Kahunas Water Park in the center of old Destin. Much more than just a water park… it’s a day of fun!
Back at the El Matador enjoy the large grass areas between our buildings just right for family fun and games. With two pools, his and her whirlpool, and saunas just right for your tired muscles after a game of tennis on one of our courts, or in our fitness center. We are located at the end of Okaloosa Island a small barrier Island between Fort Walton Beach and Destin. This gated community with thirteen miles of undeveloped beaches to the west is sure to have you longing to return.
Additional amenities include: parasailing, tennis, nearby movie theatres, boating, jet-ski-ing, beach, snorkelling, nearby grocery, bbq grills on site, cookware, nearby post office, nearby fedex, ice maker, sailing, ironing board, washer/dryer on site, nearby outlet shopping, fishing, pots and pans, coffee maker, nearby bank, nearby internet cafe, no phone, nearby medical services, nearby golf courses, kite-boarding, disc golf, on site fitness center, diving, nearby atm, golfing....Read more

We first came to El Matador in 1978 with our daughters. We keep coming back; the only difference is that we now we have them and their families. Need I say more?
