Mediterranean Escape

Perfect rows of towering palm trees and iconic white butteries welcome you to perhaps the most luxurious community on Highway 30A: Alys Beach. Located just west of Rosemary Beach, this beach-front community is masterfully constructed and resembles a Greek oasis. The architects behind Alys Beach boast homes built here are the most efficient and fortified out there, along with some of the most uniquely designed courtyards in the area. Homeowners and guests can soak up many exclusive amenities such as Caliza’s picturesque pool and restaurant, Zuma Wellness Center for spa services and a fitness center, plus their brand new breath-taking Beach Club. Their town center hosts delicious restaurants and various shops – some of which are still underway and opening soon! Don’t miss their one of a kind event: Digital Graffiti, where art from all over the world comes to life through projection mapping on this community’s all-white buildings!

Alys Beach is an unincorporated planned community in Walton County, Florida, United States directly off of CR 30A, on the Gulf Coast. Alys Beach plan was designed by Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company. The village is approximately 158 acres (0.64 km2). Alys Beach is located on the Gulf of Mexico in southeastern Walton County. U.S. Route 98 and County Road 30A are the main roads that run through the community. Via County Road 30A, Rosemary Beach is less than 2 miles (3.2 km) southeast, and Seaside is 7 miles (11 km) west.

Alys Beach is one of three planned communities on Florida’s Gulf coast designed by Andrés Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk. The other two are Seaside and Rosemary Beach. The three are examples of a style of urban planning known as New Urbanism. The design vision of Alys Beach was based on Moorish and Mediterranean villages and architectural styles of Bermuda. The courtyard’s design was inspired by homes in Antigua and Guatemala. The Alys Beach community is constructed following the Fortified for Safer Living standards by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety.

Alys Beach modern history began in 1970s, when the Stephens family purchased the 158-acre (64 ha) property at auction. The family had been vacationing in the area for many years, and wanted to provide a permanent retreat for an extended family and their employees. Family patriarch Elton Stephens named estate after his beloved, Alys Robinson Stephens (1910–1996).
