Santa Rosa Beach
Monday, June 17, 2019
Cruise or stroll along Old Highway 98 (strolling is often faster), and you'll discover some colorful shrimp shacks, t-shirt shops, condo high-rises, numerous golf courses, beach boardwalks, shopping, surfing and more. Maybe Miramar Beach is no longer the sleepy little surf-side corridor that it once was, but the stunning turquoise waters and bustling beach life keep the die-hard regulars coming...
Hailed by Time magazine as perhaps "the most astounding design achievement of its era," Seaside is credited with founding a global town-planning movement known as New Urbanism. Founded by Robert and Daryl Davis in 1979, Seaside's innovative "small town" design was carefully planned. With its nine unique beach pavilions, cobblestone streets, quaint cottages, white picket fences, and picture-perfect parks and...
A massive (2,400-acre) golf and beach resort located just a few miles west of Scenic Highway 30A, Sandestin is home to 30 distinct neighborhoods, including pockets of beautiful villas, town homes, condos, resort homes and hotels. The lushly landscaped resort boasts seven miles of Gulf beaches and bay-front property, four championship golf courses, 15 tennis courts, 19 swimming pools, a...
The boundaries of Santa Rosa Beach can be a little hard to define. Technically, Santa Rosa Beach encompasses a large part of South Walton, including the smaller neighborhoods of Seaside, WaterColor, Grayton Beach and Blue Mountain Beach. Basically, anything with a "32459" zip code is considered to be part of Santa Rosa Beach, although each of Santa Rosa Beach's sub-communities...
One of Scenic Highway 30A'€™s newest -- and perhaps the most visually striking -- €”community features architecture influenced by the brilliant-white, traditional homes of Bermuda. When complete, the 158-acre resort town of Alys Beach will be twice the size of nearby Seaside and will consist of 900 custom villas and courtyard homes. As you enter Alys Beach, the first architectural features...
With coastal dune lakes along the north side of Scenic 30A (including Stallworth Lake and Oyster Lake, which is shaped like an oyster shell, but also was reportedly once teeming with fresh oysters) and glimpses of the glittering Gulf of Mexico to the south, the mostly residential community of Dune Allen has been a favorite vacation destination for generations. Fishing...
Said to be the highest point anywhere on the Gulf of Mexico (at a whopping elevation of 64 feet), "Blue Mountain Beach" is hardly a mountain... but at least they got the beach part right. As for the blue? Folks say it likely originated from the blue lupine flowers that still flourish between the homes here. At one time, they...
One of 30A's planned New Urbanist communities, Rosemary Beach is an architectural treasure trove, boasting influences from the West Indies, New Orleans, Charleston and St. Augustine, among others. The grand homes (many with adjoining carriage houses that are just as extraordinary) are interconnected by a discreet network of pedestrian paths and boardwalks, which become even more charming at night, basked...
Inlet Beach is just about as authentic 'Old Florida' as you'll find in South Walton, and perhaps anywhere. Quite quiet and bordered by 13 acres of protected dunes, this pristine beach neighborhood feels as if time somehow forgot it. Most homes here are classic Florida cottages. Think A-Frame with a front porch, concrete block cottages and houses raised high on...
The serene beauty at WaterSound will certainly quiet your mind, but it's also likely to quicken your heart. Neighborhood boardwalks offer stunning views of Camp Creek Lake, a meandering coastal dune lake, as well as footpath access to a stunning white sand beach buffered by towering dunes. The grand homes in this gated 30A community lend a little Cape...
With towering penthouse condos that offer the highest perspectives in all of South Walton, Seascape Resort offers a dramatically different experience than the sleepier beach towns along Scenic Highway 30A, just a few miles to the east. In addition to its bustling beachfront (an idyllic spot for people-watching), Seascape has over 300 acres of lush greens and lakes, an 18-hole...
