Dune Allen

Coastal dune lakes are a geographical rarity – an ecosystem found in only a handful of places around the world, including South Walton. However, in Dune Allen alone there are three: Lake Allen, Stallworth Lake, and Oyster Lake. The dune lakes bring a heightened sense of pristine beauty and ecological balance to Dune Allen, where nature lovers and photographers can enjoy watching rare wildlife and spectacular sunsets.

Add to that Topsail Hill State Preserve with wonderful trails and the highest dunes on the coast, as well as comfortable accommodations and popular beach access points, and you’ve got a great location for a naturally refreshing getaway.
