** Bicycles ARE allowed in the WaterSound West community on the streets. Due to safety and legal concerns, the WaterSound West HOA will no longer allow bicycles on the West Beach boardwalks. However, they are still permitted on the beach walkover, with the following provisions. (1) Bicycles must be walked from where the pavement ends at the clubhouse to the entrance of the beach walkover, where the railing begins; and (2) Bicycles must be ridden at the lowest possible speed while on the beach walkover. **


“The Big Chill” is the community center for Prominence and is a quick 10 minute bike ride your home or 1.6 mile drive.  The Big Chill offers something for folks of all ages and tastes, from tacos and tequila, to wings, burgers and shakes, a stop here is quick, tasty and convenient, and comes with a side of entertainment at the outdoor amphitheater. It's a great place to catch a concert, sporting event, or a movie on the lawn. 

Seaside is a short drive away and is most widely known for being featured in the Truman Show with Jim Carrey. Its incredible architecture has helped to make it famous but also its faithful replication of the kind of seaside town that used to be common up and down the coast. Seaside has its own Farmer's Market, post office, Repertory Theater and neighborhood school. It boasts unique shopping, fantastic cuisine and the incredible architecture that makes Seaside famous. There are activities for everyone: kayak rentals, bike rentals, paragliding, fishing, golfing, hiking, swimming, tennis -- you'll find it all right here.

The snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Sea Turtle Reef, deployed in 2017. Located just 783 feet out from the Grayton Beach State Park access, it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Sea Turtle Reef is at a depth of 12-19 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy!

- Great place in a beautiful neighborhood! Plenty of room and beautifully decorated. We went for a girls trip with my mom and aunt and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Right in between Seaside and Rosemary Beach.

Fun Fall Getaway - We loved our stay in Watersound West. This house was the perfect size for our family of four and the bikes were a great perk. We rode them every day to the beach, pool and down to Seaside. We had one small maintenance issue and the property management addressed it quickly. We look forward to our next trip back!

Beautiful and very clean house - We loved the house esp the beautiful screened in porch. The neighborhood is so nice and quiet. We went in August and the beach was not crowded at all. Short bike ride to pool and boardwalk. Also loved that they had bikes for us to use. Thank you!!

- Great community to stay in. Much quieter than Seacrest/Rosemary

Wonderful visit to Watersound West Beach - This home was everything that we were hoping for during our one week stay. There were a couple of minor issues that the property management addressed really quickly. The 4 included bikes were a nice touch. Our child's favorite part of this community is the pool and I love riding bikes around the community without fear of being hit. We hope to return as soon as we can. Thank you!

Great Fall Getaway - Watersound is a great community and location. House was nice with adequate accommodations. We had a couple issues come up but property management quickly addressed.

- The house was wonderful! It was so convenient to take the bikes out for a ride down 30A. While the walk to the beach was a bit far, having a wagon to roll everything down there made it much easier. We had a great time and would definitely recommend the house!
