Alys Beach is the embodiment of a luxury coastal town. This award-winning community is located just west of Rosemary Beach, and it too was concepted by New Urbanist planners Duany Plater-Zyberk. Founded in 2004, the all-white homes of Albs are modeled after those in the Caribbean, and the town reflects detailed and exacting consideration of every building, street, park, and path.
A visit to Alys beach could mean live music on their amphitheater lawn or maybe a respite stop at Raw + Juicy for a healthy bite after a sun-filled bike ride. George’s Restaurant is another popular spot, and, if there is a wait, their viewing deck is ideal for a drink with a water view. At the Caliza Pool, Alys Beach owners and their guests can swim, sunbathe, or choose to nap in draped, heavenly cabanas. During the high season, the Caliza Restaurant serves Gulf-coast inspired cuisine poolside.
Be sure to mark early Summer on your calendar to visit Alys Beach. Attendance of their annual Digital Graffiti event, where art is projected onto the buildings as the town, is a must-do. The town transforms as the buildings become canvases for artists from around the globe.View Listings
