Dune Allen Beach

Dune Allen Beach Real Estate

For those buyers looking for the old-school Florida charm with no association fees or confining covenants and restrictions, then Dune Allen Beach is for them. Dune Allen Beach is filled with the classic one-story, concrete homes splashed in pastel hues, as well as newer rental homes dotting County Road 30A as it meanders by Oyster and Allen coastal dune lakes. This slice of 30A was one of the original areas settled and most of the homes reflect that laid-back feel. But don’t let Dune Allen fool you. A couple newer developments have gone up in recent years, so there is something for everyone.


Dune Allen Beach runs the gamut of architectural styles. Vizcaya at Dune Allen is a strictly Mediterranean-style gated neighborhood on the Gulf of Mexico whose homes are finished in white stucco and red tile roofs. Stallworth Preserve in nearby Beach Highlands is another gated beach-front neighborhood whose neo-classical homes are a mix of Mediterranean and British Colonial styles. Those neighborhoods in between feature predominantly Florida cottage-style homes with colorful clapboard siding and metal roofs.


Dune Allen Beach and nearby Beach Highlands are home to Lake Stallworth, Lake Allen and Oyster Lake, three of the 11 coastal dune lakes along the beaches of South Walton, and among the 15 found along the Gulf of Mexico in Northwest Florida. These rare bodies of water are found only in Northwest Florida and remote portions of Africa and Australia.

One of the most popular restaurants on 30A resides in Dune Allen Beach. Though the name may fool those who have not enjoyed Stinky’s Fish Camp it is one of the newest and most recommended dining establishments on 30A.
