                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Alys Beach is a New Urban community combining the harmonious forms of Bermudan architecture with the gracious character of courtyard living. The vision for Alys Beach embraces a commitment to architectural excellence and a deep respect for the natural environment. The interiors of Alys Beach homes embrace a modern, seaside aesthetic – open, whitewashed spaces highlighted by the textures and colors of natural, local materials- limestone floors, antique cypress beams and doors, and brightly patterned cement tiles.

                  In honor of its seaside location, Alys Beach is clearly oriented to the Gulf of Mexico, with major streets and paths leading straight to the sea. Here, the Gulf’s color and texture changes with time of day, weather, and season, with its waters always remaining as a beautiful constant on the horizon.

                  The beaches of Northwest Florida are among the finest in the world, with clean white sands bathed by gentle waves and clear blue waters that have long beckoned travelers. All of Alys Beach’s 158 acres are within a short and pleasant walk of the beach, where there’s plenty of room for lounging in the sun or swimming, fishing, and other active pursuits.

                  Among Alys Beach’s most recognized and revered amenities is Caliza Pool. Upon entering Caliza, guests feel as if they have been transported to a Moroccan village. A well-appointed seating area greets guests on the right and provides a relaxing refuge from the sun. Stairs lead up to a rooftop piazza overlooking the town with the turquoise waters of the Gulf in the background.

                  At Alys Beach, parks are an integral part of the town design and offer central points of connectivity and recreation. Of the town’s nine parks, the Amphitheater is the largest and hosts a wide range of musical and theatrical performances throughout the year. It is also home to Alys Beach’s interactive fountain that has become a magnet for kids of all ages. Central Park behind Caliza Pool is a great spot for a family picnic or a game of Frisbee. While the Gulf Green is the spot to take in a spectacular South Walton sunset. Grab a map and explore all the parks to discover your favorite.

                  Along the northern edge of town, the winding shores of Lake Marilyn offer a wonderful spot to relax and observe as the town transitions into the forests of the nature preserve. The lake serves the function of providing irrigation water for parks and streetside landscapes, while its calm waters reward with peaceful reflections of white walls and blue skies.

                  The northern portion of Alys Beach is devoted to a 20-acre nature preserve that provides a quiet and reflective getaway. An 1800-foot-long trail winds its way through the preserve, most of it on an elevated wooden boardwalk that gives a great view of the varied habitats below.One of the most endearing qualities of Alys Beach is that everything you need (or want) is just a bike ride away. With the Alys Beach Bike Shop, a two-, three- or four-wheeled mode of transportation is always within reach.

                  Like most things in Alys Beach, meals are thoughtful, sustainable, simple, and fresh. From Charlie’s Donut Truck, which brings 1920′s-style hand-rolled donuts fresh from the bakery each morning, to the local, sustainable, natural, and organic ingredients used to create the delectable fare at Caliza Restaurant, those looking for a fresh, flavorful meal will be delighted with Alys Beach’s dining options.

                  From locally sourced ingredients to specialty items, Alys Beach restaurants bring delicious choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. At Fonville Press, guests start their day with a fresh coffee and often return to enjoy the indulgent frappes, ice cream, and domestic and imported beer and wine.

                  Whether dining for lunch or dinner, George’s at Alys Beach serves local, organic dishes that incorporate the freshest produce and seafood. The menu is playfully divided into two categories, “Behave” and the always tempting “Misbehave.” Each tasty dish is made-from-scratch, hand-chopped, hand-cut and made with love.

                  The newly expanded Fitness Center complements the town’s healthy active lifestyle. The 1,800-square-foot facility features new strength- training equipment by Cybex as well as an expanded cardio section, including an AMT (adaptive motion trainer), which combines the stair and elliptical movements in one machine. Free weights complement the equipment options for those seeking strength training.

                  If tennis is your game, the place to show that recreating is an art form is at Clermont Courts. The two Har-Tru (“rubico”) courts are surrounded by lush green shrubs and palmetto bushes. Whether playing singles or doubles, a game of tennis at Clermont Courts is infused with sea breezes and comfortable Florida temperatures.
