Welcome to Seacrest Beach
Private beach access and enchanting amenities.
Walkable palm-shaded streets lined with retail and fine dining options, the scent of brine and salt from the Gulf wafting all around, laughter bubbling out from the Lagoon Pool where families frolic—Seacrest Beach is a sensory paradise tucked in Walton County, Florida, between Alys and Seagrove Beaches.
A master-planned community developed in concept in 1996, with homes being constructed in 2000, Seacrest Beach takes advantage of the best of the area’s natural resources and melds them seamlessly with exclusivity that elevates the experience for residents and visitors. Everything is within walking distance here, and the intent to create a livable utopia shines through the area’s plentiful amenities and entertainment options.
Thoughtfully made, the designers of this community took care to build in a cohesive architectural style that focused on beauty and environmentally friendly sustainability. The residential homes are mostly single-family, and often at least two stories to allow for an extraordinary ocean view. In darling pastels and colonial styles, these lavish beach houses are just one facet of what makes Seacrest Beach great.
