The beautiful beaches of Northwest Florida are one of the best in the world. With crystal clear white sands bathed by gentle waves and amazingly blue waters that have attracted travelers for over 60 years. All of Alys Beach's 150 acres are within a short and enjoyable walk of the beach. At Alys Beach you can enjoy a feature of Florida called a sand dune rising nearly thirty feet above the Gulf, giving a brilliant view of beach and sea before rolling down onto soft white sands.
These sand particles were once part of the famous Appalachian Mountains, which weathered over time, turning the hard rock into nearly pure quartz sand that washed down rivers to the sea. This quartz sand is what gives the Destin waters of the Gulf of Mexico its beautiful emerald colors.
In summer, the water temperature is just perfect to coax mother sea turtles ashore to lay eggs at the bottom of the dunes, keeping their old tradition alive. During fall, the sea oats grow tall with heavy seed heads that sway in the breeze bringing many butterflies on the way to their winter home in the rocky mountains of Central Mexico.
