Seacrest Beach North, often refered to simply as Seacrest Beach, is a fairly new residential community located on the far eastern side of South Walton’s Scenic 30A. Development began in 1996 with an eye toward laid-back coastal living at its best. In the center of Seacrest, the road is lined with palms and lifeguard towers at each end bids welcome to visitors with a sign reading “Seacrest Beach”. The glistening gulf which it borders can be seen easily since this town sits on the crest of a dune. The architecture varies between charming Old Florida styled designs with warp around porches and breezy balconies as well as European styles, Mediterranean and modern contemporary condominiums. A jungle of palm trees and other tropical plantings accentuate the beautiful surroundings throughout the community. It is centered by one of the largest community swimming pools in Northwest Florida which provides an idyllic setting. The 14,000 square feet of interconnecting pools flow from one to another on multiple levels with a large fountain in one that mists down upon another below. Lush landscaping, picnic pavilions and lovely walkways surround this watery oasis. An outdoor grassy amphitheater nearby is used for live musical concerts at different times of the year.
