June 8, 2012 by SoWal Staff

Alys Beach, Florida is one of the newest "new urban" towns in South Walton and it is perhaps the most visually unique because of its distinct blend of mediterranean and island style. Take a stroll down the center of town along the stone-lined pedestrian path and feel yourself transported to another world.

Here are a few of our favorite things to do and places to see in Alys Beach:

The Alys Beach Amphitheater is the perfect place for families to enjoy outdoor concerts, movies and children's plays!

The annual 30A Wine Festival at Caliza Pool is one of the finest wine festivals we've been to. The food is amazing also.

Caliza Pool happy hour or dinner will transport you to another world (Caliza means "limestone" in Spanish).
