Staying Safe at the Beach in South Walton

At SoWal.com, we are committed to helping locals and visitors stay safe while enjoying our beautiful beaches. The beach is such a wonderful place to relax. At the beach, life is beautiful and we slip into a state of mind where we feel comfortable, carefree, and secure. That's what a vacation is all about!

However, the gulf waters can be dangerous and it's important to always put safety first. For detailed information about Beach Safety go here >

Customary Use Battleground in Walton County, Florida - Public Hearing Nov 3

Many visitors to SoWal are shocked to find out that much of the stretch of beach between Miramar Beach and Inlet Beach is deeded to beachfront owners. As parking has gotten scarce and chair vendors have taken over much of the public space, competition for a place to relax is getting heated.

Seaside Pavilions are Unique Gateways to Beach Bliss

If you’ve ever driven down Scenic 30A through Seaside, then chances are you've seen one or more of the Seaside pavilions on the Gulf.

They are beautiful and enticing. They may be the most photographed architecture in South Walton, and they are also quite significant to SoWal’s history and architectural story. The nine pavilions help make our community stand out from other beach destinations, and each structure is unique in appearance and designed by a different architect.

Seaside Dune Restoration Project Underway

In an effort to mitigate storm effects and maintain its beaches in the best possible condition, Seaside is restoring and re-nourishing its coastal sand dunes.

This approach will further develop Seaside’s long-term preservation and resiliency strategy to protect the landscape and maintain the native ecosystems. Its implementation will provide natural, enduring and future protection with no adverse effect to adjacent coastal areas.
