30A Real Estate: Dune Allen Beach Real Estate and Dune Allen Homes for Sale
Located along Scenic Highway 30A, Dune Allen is the gateway to the fabled Beaches of South Walton that embrace the Gulf of Mexico in Northwest Florida. This picturesque beach community, one of 16 situated along the coastal strip, is among the top vacation destinations in the area.
It is known for its visually arresting scenery, challenging trails and unique wildlife – including endangered species like the green sea turtle and the blue lupine plant – that would whet any nature lover’s appetite. It also lays claim to three of the region’s 15 rare coastal dune lakes, Lake Stallworth, Lake Allen and Lake Oyster. Dune lakes, which are around a couple of miles from the coast, are found in very few pockets of the world. Oyster Lake, which is formed like an oyster shell, is a popular picnic spot. Other attractions like the Topsail Hill Preserve State Park features 25-foot-high dunes, wetlands and lush foliage that offer camping, birdwatching and hiking opportunities. Anglers can check out the lakes for largemouth bass and striped mullet or the open sea for Gulf flounder.
And we haven’t even talked about the beach yet. As part of the Beaches of South Walton, Dune Allen is home to one of the most breathtaking beaches in the world. With sand as fine and white as powdered sugar and waters as green as emeralds, it’s the perfect getaway for those who like spectacular sunsets.
If it’s a food crawl you want, there’s a good selection of dining outlets within the neighborhood, with more choices in nearby Destin. For shopping, there are a number of boutiques that offer interesting souvenirs. The ambience is laidback and welcoming.
For those who want a share of this piece of paradise there’s a plethora of residential choices, from charming bungalows to sprawling estates. This planned community offers an interesting mix of classic beach houses (defined by spacious open porches), Mediterranean-style villas, and charming cottages done in the old Florida style. There are also modern glass-wrapped townhouses and low-rise condominiums.
