With more than 65 beach and bay access points along its 26 miles of sugar white sand, South Walton makes finding your perfect beach a breeze. Test out the Santa Clara Beach Access in Seagrove and marvel at the spectacular view that awaits.

Named for the thick grove of windswept trees that surround it, Seagrove has stayed true to its roots by preserving the same green canopy of oaks, magnolias, hickories and sand pines that came to define it a half a century ago.

An eclectic mix of old beach homesteads and newer cottages, Seagrove has a well-balanced menu of beyond-the-beach activities that range from biking along Scenic Highway 30A to browsing the one-of-a-kind beach shops and restaurants.
