The Beach – Because We Can’t Possibly Leave that Off the List

This may be stating the obvious, but it would just be wrong to talk about outdoor activities without mentioning the famous beaches of South Walton – am I right? These beaches are the heart of what draws so many people to our area and keeps them coming back for more, year after year. And let’s be honest, sometimes you just can’t beat a perfect day out on the beach. Just remember, our beaches are also home to adorable creatures such as sea turtles, so be sure to pick up your trash and pack up your gear before heading back in – let’s keep our beaches in tip top shape for the helpless creatures that truly call our beaches their home.
