When deciding where to spend vacation time at the beach, a major consideration is what amenities are nearby.

For some the more amenities the better.

But for others, less is more.

For those looking for a quiet and peaceful stretch of beach, Dune Allen may be your perfect beach.

Walton County 's Tourist Development Council's map shows Dune Allen boundaries taking up where Sandestin stops on the west, and stretching eastward to Santa Rosa Beach Golf & Beach Club.

It includes Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, the beginning of the west end of County Road 30A, Flamingo Village subdivision, Topsail Village, Butler Elementary School, a world-class ski school, Elmo's Gill, Stinky's Fish Camp, Vizcaya, and five lakes, three of which are rare coastal dune lakes.

The area has a quiet and quaint history and is known as the quiet stretch of 30A.
