Everyday Life 

Those who are fortunate enough to live in this quiet, residential luxury community with no significant commercial development are unlikely to boast. They know how wonderful life is here and while they’re happy to share it, they’d just as soon keep it under wraps a bit. 

Neighbors meet at locally owned Seacrest Sundries, the charming neighborhood market, for morning coffee, a flaky biscuit and a chat, then head out for a day of biking, paddling or simply lounging at home. Tucked between busier beaches and behind sand dunes so high you can glimpse dolphins swimming in the distance, there’s a peaceful, nearly secret ambiance that begs one to slow down and enjoy life in Seacrest. 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

At the heart of Seacrest, Peddler’s Pavilion draws friends and neighbors to cute shops and open-air restaurants. All manner of water-sports equipment is available here, as well as bikes for everyone in the family. Wander through The Village of South Walton, which tempts savvy palates with an array of dining options, shops and businesses catering to the local luxury lifestyle.  


For the adults, Beach and Brew on 30A is a go-to, known for their large craft beer and wine menus. Sip local suds from South Walton’s Idyll Hounds Brewing Company and Grayton Beer Company with Seacrest locals, visitors and visitors who became locals. Sit in the lively taproom, or fill a to-go growler to enjoy at home as the sun goes down. 


LaCo offers a traditional, Latin-inspired menu with a coastal twist – choose from a variety of ceviches and crudos, salads, tacos and more. Brunch is a neighborhood favorite, thanks to the chilaquiles, breakfast bowls and even lobster-avocado toast. Savor the taste of Italy with every bite of wood-fired pizza at Ticheli’s, where the dough boasts imported italian flour and the homemade pizza sauce is made here daily. Over at Pizza by the Sea, flip flops are always in fashion and the family-friendly atmosphere is a hit for all ages. 


Craving something sweet? You’ll find the same famous donuts you can grab from the popular food truck in Alys Beach – Charlie’s Donut Truck – at his kiosk in the Peddler’s Pavilion. Come early – they sell out quickly! Or, stop by The Sweet Peddler for candy classics and ice cream cones. 

More casual dining options include Crabby Steve’s, where there’s always a colada with your name on it, and Chicken Salad Chick. From savory to fruity to nutty, these scratch-made, Southern-style favorites hit the spot on a sunny day.

Things to Do

Homeowners in Seacrest have another trick up their sleeves – a massive (12,000 square feet!) lagoon-style swimming pool that’s tucked away within the exclusive neighborhood. Families linger luxuriously for hours, shaded by tall palm trees, splashing and playing around the central fountain water features and cooling off with frosty beverages. Pools at the High Pointe Resort and The Villas at Seacrest provide plenty of splash-able fun, as well. 


Ready for the sand? Take the steps to a private beach access and some of the tallest dunes in South Walton. Next door, you’ll find white-washed, Mediterranean-esque Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach, with its shopping and spa opportunities, both a short, pleasant bike ride away. 


Spin your legs on the Timpoochee Trail, an 18.5-mile bike route that runs the length of Scenic Highway 30A from Dune Allen to Inlet Beach. You’ll pass dune lakes, state parks, numerous beach accesses and more along this safe, wide and relatively flat path. 


One of the many pleasant aspects of life in Seacrest is the proximity to all of the joys of South Walton, including art galleries, on-stage theatrical performances, movie theaters, local live music and more. It’s just as easy to enjoy the area’s many waterways, from the Gulf of Mexico, to Choctawhatchee Bay, to the region’s 15 rare coastal dune lakes. Head out for a day of fishing or glide along the water in a kayak at dawn. Those hoping for a gentle hike or nature walk can head to Point Washington State Forest and Deer Lake State Park to the north or Camp Helen State Park to the south.


And, of course, there’s the excellent golf here in South Walton. Seacrest residents can tee off at courses designed by some of the biggest names in the game, including Robert Trent Jones Jr. and Tom Jackson. Favorite fairways near Seacrest are Origins, with a private, secluded feel, and Camp Creek Golf Club, designed by Tom Fazio and known for its rolling, wind-swept and challenging terrain.
