NatureWalk 30A is in a prime location on Hwy 395 off of 30A, next to Watercolor and Seaside and surrounded by Point Washington State Forest. Explore the endless trails by bike or on foot.
NatureWalk 30A has a private path “Lilly Lane Beach Trail” to San Juan Avenue which has beach access. This path goes through the beautiful state forest which also surrounds NatureWalk 30A. Several additional beach accesses are also located along 30A within a mile. The beaches at Seaside or Watercolor, as well as Grayton Beach State Park are a short walk, bike ride or golf cart ride away.
NatureWalk’s “Gathering Place” boasts a large zero-entry pool, a heated lap pool, hot tub, lounge chairs, tables and chairs, a shaded kiddie pool, hammocks, playground, outdoor kitchen with gas grills, and gas fire pit for family enjoyment. You will also find volleyball courts, pickleball courts, basketball, and another playground nearby.
According to Travel and Leisure, 30A’s 26 miles of idyllic coastline make it the #1 US summer hot spot on Airbnb. The beaches of South Walton County are some of the world’s best with sugar white sand and clear emerald green waters.
South Walton County boasts unique shopping, fantastic cuisine and the incredible architecture that makes 30A famous. There are activities for everyone: paddleboard rentals, kayak rentals, biking, paragliding, fishing, golfing, summer beginner surfing, swimming, tennis -- you'll find it all right here on 30A.
The town of Seaside is one of the original communities along 30A. Being in a home next to Seaside is important as the town caters to people walking, biking or in a LSV. The town infuses old Florida charm into it's first new Urbanist community. Seaside was named the “Best Beach on Earth” for families by Travel + Leisure magazine and is included in USA Today’s “Top 10 Best Beach Towns in Florida.”
The town is forever known for being featured in the Truman Show with Jim Carrey. Seaside has its own Farmer's Market, Repertory Theater, spa, shops, restaurants and Seaside’s iconic tiny post office is one of the most photographed post offices in the world. Seaside offers yoga, movie nights and family friendly events throughout the year.
The WaterColor, Florida community begins across the street from the Naturewalk entrance on 395. It starts at the the Gulf of Mexico and wraps around Seaside to Naturewalk. Watercolor is a beach town with rich landscaping and incredible parks that blend perfectly into Northwest Florida’s natural scrub oak and palmetto. It is home to picturesque Western Lake, South Walton’s largest coastal dune lake. Both gravel and paved paths and bridges are throughout Watercolor, great for biking or walking. At Watercolor’s boathouse you can do stand up paddle-boarding, kayaking, or canoeing. Watercolor is also home to the James Beard award-winning restaurant, Fish Out of Water that has great food and amazing ocean views.
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.
