Visit South Walton


Seaworld Orlando - details / Tabs



Start with the incredible blessings of our natural surroundings: 26 miles of sugar-white beaches and the magnificent turquoise of the Gulf of Mexico, brimming with sport fishing opportunities and water warm enough for swimming most of the year; rare coastal dune lakes, maritime forests, and windswept sand dunes. Then add 16 unique beach neighborhoods, each with its own charm and personality. Some worldly and exotic, a few eclectic and artsy, others as friendly and casual as your favorite Jimmy Buffett song. Sprinkle them all with a wide range of accommodations, from premium resorts to charming B&Bs to cozy beachside cottages. Spice with a delectable mixture of beach cuisine, whether it be local seafood prepared by an award-winning chef, casual comfort food, or warm homemade donuts. Finally, mix in the amenities that put an exclamation point on the ideal vacation: world-class golf and tennis facilities, outdoor eco-adventures and experiences, family fun activities, a shopper's paradise, a thriving arts community, and a long list of exciting events and festivals. Warm it all under a sunny, four-season Florida climate… and you've got South Walton. The recipe for a perfect beach vacation.
