Welcome to South Walton, FL

Coming Soon

One of the most visited cities on Florida’s Emerald Coast, the South Walton beaches of Northwest Florida have it all. Sugar-white sand and emerald-green water invite you to spend a day sunbathing on the beach, renting jet skis, snorkeling, or heading out on a fishing charter. When you need a break from endless water activities, chow down at a legendary local seafood restaurant or check in at an award-winning wine bar. Paddleboard on a rare coastal dune lake, peruse a farmer’s market, play a round of golf, or bike the entire stretch of 30A along the Timpoochee Trail bike path. This area of the Florida panhandle is known for unparalleled natural beauty and a tight-knit, inviting sense of community.
