Looking for an escape? Come to Dune Allen, where visitors enjoy abundant outdoor space and a welcoming, tight-knit community.
This beach neighborhood boasts three coastal dune lakes, which are extremely rare bodies of water found in only a handful of places across the world. Dune Allen also offers more than five miles of breathtaking trails in Topsail Hill Preserve State Park — making it a dream destination for nature lovers and ecosplorers. Come unwind and relax in the most inspiring type of setting.
Start each day with a walk along the sugar-white sand; then, rent a bike and pedal your way along the Timpoochee Trail. Any Dune Allen visitor must make a stop along the Oyster Lake bridge — this stunning walkway is the perfect backdrop for a South Walton family photo.
At the end of the day, kick back and enjoy live music and fresh seafood at Stinky’s Fish Camp. A South Walton favorite for nearly a decade, this restaurant was recently named as one of the Top 10 Places to Eat Like a Local by USA Today.
