NatureWalk at Seagrove is a master planned residential community located off Scenic 30A along the beaches of South Walton. This meticulously designed 155-acre world is accurately named since besides the lush landscaping it is surrounded on three sides by the expansive nature preserve of Point Washington State Forest. It encompasses an abundance of towering pines, palmetto palms, magnolias, and live oak trees along with flourishing wildlife. Many of our Ocean Reef Resorts guests come to this part of the world to take advantage of this little piece of paradise as Eco-tourists. You can become one with nature by hiking, biking, fishing, paddle boarding or kayaking on forested lagoons.
Amenities at NatureWalk
A covered bridge marks the entrance into NatureWalk at Seagrove, which was designed as a charming residential enclave to include Americana styled home designs that evoke a warm feeling of bygone golden years. Paver stones are used for walkways and drives that lead up to homes with verandas that span their width. The center of NatureWalk is called “The Gathering Place” and features a large refreshing swimming pool with multiple angles and a bubbling hot tub. There is also a splash pool and a long lap pool available for avid swimmers. A spacious patio beside the pool is adorned with tropical palm trees that rustle serenely in the breeze. A large pavilion nearby has an entertainment bar where folks gather to enjoy their own favorite tropical drinks. The patio includes tables, chairs, and gas grills so that families may enjoy having their poolside cookout with close friends. A “Tot Lot” provides a fun playground for kids while their parents may enjoy a grassy Putting Green nearby. NatureWalk's awesome location is a short bike ride away from the sparkling crystalline white beach and jewel toned waters of the gulf. Guests that don't want to “bike it” over may use the seasonal open-air neighborhood beach shuttle provided to and from the beach.
Biking at NatureWalk
However one of the most popular pursuits lately is to go bicycling across the captivating countryside. NatureWalk is located near the paved South Walton Bike Trail (Timpoochee Trail) bike path that extends almost twenty miles along Scenic 30A. This route is one of the most beautiful you will ever find since it passes through gorgeous forests dotted with exotic Coastal Dune Lakes. These natural exotic gems are found hardly anywhere else in the entire world. Their location along forested sand dunes that parallel the beautiful gulf makes them very special since they contain an unusual blend of both salt and fresh water that supports a vast amount of flora and fauna.
What's Near NatureWalk
Just west of NatureWalk along the paved bike trail, the scenery is quite breathtaking at Western Lake where the village of Watercolor is located. An isthmus crosses this rare coastal dune lake with views of the forest towards the north and sugary dunes across the water towards the south. Grayton Beach State Park, which was recently acclaimed as one of the most beautiful shores in America provides stunning natural vistas. This recognition as reported in Forbes Magazine was based upon the quality of the pure quartz crystal sand, ease of accessibility and pristine natural beauty. Towards the east is Deer Lake State Park where you can take an elevated wooden walkway through the forest and cross the dunes to take a refreshing dip in the gulf. Bikers may encounter lots of wildlife along the way including White-Tailed Deer, Gopher Tortoises, Red-headed Woodpeckers, Falcons, Eagles, White Egrets, Great Blue Herons and wild Mallard Ducks en route. Along the beaches and out in the Gulf you may see squadrons of Brown Pelicans diving for fish as well as dolphins frolicking in the distance. This locale offers other delightful diversions available at the famous internationally renowned community of Seaside, which is just a few minutes away. This attractive coastal village features a wide array of specialty boutiques, galleries, restaurants, friendly beach bars, free concerts, and festive seasonal celebrations.
