If you desire a blissful beach getaway then Dune Allen should be a top choice. It’s not just the sprawling beaches that will leave you in awe but this beach town is famous for its five coastal dune lakes- Allen, Oyster, Campell, Morris, and Stallworth. Dune Allen Beach is located in the heart of Santa Rosa Beach on the west end of scenic Highway 30a. The vast trails stretching beyond the horizon are a favorite for nature lovers and the good part is that there are no commercial businesses along the trails. Thus, you can enjoy your time without worrying about hawkers or business people bothering you to buy their merchandise.
During the day you get to sunbathe and enjoy water sports while at night you can go for walks along the shore in perfect peace. If you love fishing you can go to Sticky’s Bait Shack for that. You can fish in the coastal dune lakes or the beach as long as you get a license for this. However, hiring a guide takes the pain of getting a license out of the picture because he or she will take care of that. Further down the east of Dune Allen, Gulf Place shops and restaurants are not only a favorite to the locals but also the tourists. You can hop on your bike and follow the 30a bike path to the neighboring community of Blue Mountain Beach. You will find quaint shops and restaurants that locals and tourists love.
For the best dining experience with views in Dune Allen, you should head to Santa Rosa Beach Club’s Vue on 30a. It is open to the public and perfect all year round since during winter it’s a better option than the open-air restaurants at the beachfront. To the west of this amazing beach town is Topsail Hill State Preserve. This park ranks highly in Florida thanks to its majestic dunes, tranquil coastal dune lake, and beaches that have remained untouched for centuries. The preserve boasts 3.2 miles of secluded beaches.
Some of the dunes in Dune Allen are over 25 feet tall which means they are quite a sight. Gregory E. Moore RV park is the place to be for those looking for great campgrounds. For a luxurious summer getaway, Alys Beach will be perfect. Not only does it have stunning architecture but also a courtyard living with a gracious character. Whether it is for a day, a month, or a year, Dune Allen won’t disappoint.
