Alys Beach recently ranked #3 in Architectural Digest‘s list of The 55 Most Beautiful Small Towns in America. The publication ranked the nation’s most visually stunning locales and judged using a variety of factors, including scenery and natural beauty, quality of architecture, as well as cultural and historical importance.
“This design-centric, New Urbanism village along the Gulf of Mexico in Florida’s Panhandle region debuted in 2003, with whitewashed buildings and Bermuda-style architecture with courtyards, fountains, pools, and popped-out shutters,” quoted Architectural Digest.
Alys Beach is a coastal town located just off scenic highway 30A on the Gulf of Mexico in the Florida Panhandle. The architecture of this exclusive beach community blends the best features from Bermuda, Antigua Guatemala, and Mediterranean-styled homes. From its beautiful parks, private beach, and nature trails to both fine and casual dining options, and a private Beach Club exclusively for homeowners, you’ll find endless recreation opportunities in this pristine slice of paradise.
