Dune Allen

An explorer's all-natural getaway with every outdoor activity you could want.

With miles of pristine beaches and two regional beach accesses, Dune Allen is just the type of escape you’ve always imagined. Explore a natural preserve, embark on a hike or bike ride, then indulge in fresh Gulf seafood.

This beach neighborhood boasts three coastal dune lakes, which are extremely rare bodies of water found in only a handful of places across the world.

Come unwind and relax in the most inspiring setting.

Explore the Great Outdoors

Start each day with a walk along the sugar-white sand; then, rent a bike and pedal your way along the Timpoochee Trail. Any Dune Allen visitor must make a stop along the Oyster Lake bridge — this stunning walkway is the perfect backdrop for a South Walton family photo.

Dining in the Dunes

At the end of the day, kick back and enjoy live music and fresh seafood at Stinky’s Fish Camp, recently named one of the Top 10 Places to Eat Like a Local by USA Today. Another Dune Allen must-do is visiting Elmo’s Grill, a “not fancy, just famous” restaurant that’s served the area for more than two decades.
