Scenic 30A Snapshots
It’s difficult to find a better place on earth to photograph than the 30A Corridor. From Rosemary Beach on the east end to Dune Allen on the far west, the opportunities to capture breathtaking images are endless. We’ve decided to continuously photograph the places that make up 30A so that we can share them with you.
Here we’ll share all types of unique 30A photos including but not limited to… 30A aerial photos, beach photos and community specific photos. Our goal is to share new image galleries on at least a weekly basis. Also, make sure you follow us on Instagram, as we often release cool content there first. Let’s begin by taking an up close and personal look at Inlet Beach…
Located on the eastern most end of the 30A corridor is Inlet Beach. It’s the most “up and coming” of the 30A beach communities as detailed in our Inlet Beach Aerial blog post. Much of Inlet Beach is still natural and untouched which gives it an old Florida feel. Our hope is that even with all the new growth and development, the planners always preserve the core of its natural beauty.
Arguably one of the most popular destinations on 30A, Rosemary Beach is truly a unique beach town. Its French architecture and cobblestone streets give it a medieval European feel. It’s easy to walk the entire town via the many wooden boardwalks throughout the community. The Rosemary Beach Town Center offers plenty of shops, restaurants and beach equipment rental establishments. Our Rosemary Beach aerial blog post will give you an incredible view from above.
The western neighbor of Rosemary Beach, Seacrest Beach is all about family. The big white lifeguard stand is a favorite landmark located at the main community entrance. Seacrest Beach is home to a huge lagoon style pool that is in walking distance from any property in the neighborhood. Peddlers Pavilion is a fun family spot that is full of places to eat, shop, drink and rent beach equipment. Getting down to the beach is easy as Seacrest offers a free tram service which is unique to 30A.

Highly exclusive, VIP, the upper echelon… Those are just a few of the ways one might describe Alys Beach. If you stay here then your ship has come in. All of the buildings, including the homes there are white. Driving through Alys beach the first thing you will notice is the meticulously manicured landscaping. Large royal palm trees and modern hedges line both sides of hwy 30A. It’s a popular wedding destination and fantastic place to take family pictures.
Watersound is one big 30A beach development comprised of a series of districts. The individual districts that make up WaterSound include; Peninsula, Gulfview, Bridges, Crescent Keel, Dune Ridge, Wind Rose and Passages. Each district has its own gate entrance but the overall community is Watersound and oh what a place it is. The architecture is straight out of Nantucket making it highly unique upon entrance. Well known for its golf cart beach boardwalks and amazing white sand dunes, Watersound is the epitome of Florida beach beauty.
South County Highway 395 takes you right into the heart of 30A and that’s where you’ll find Seagrove beach. Seagrove is truly the original 30A beach community. Full of character and charm, you’ll find just about everything there. In fact, it’s one of only 2 places that you’ll find a gas station on 30A. Many people prefer to stay in Seagrove because of it’s close proximity to everything, including the world famous Seaside to the west.
Seaside Florida is easily the most popular place on 30A. Made forever notorious by the hit 1998 movie “The Truman Show” which starred Jim Carrey at the height of his acting career. A large portion of the movie was shot in Seaside and the house that Truman lived in is still there. In Seaside you’ll see food trucks lining the north sidewalk and Gulf front restaurants all along south side. Seaside is a must see place if you decide to vacation anywhere near 30A.
One of the larger beach communities, Watercolor sits in-between Seaside and Western Lake. Tennis courts, bike paths, pools, shops, restaurants and of course the beach club. Watercolor really has just about everything you need while on vacation. It is the only beach community on 30A that has a Publix grocery store right in the neighborhood!
Laid back hippy style old Florida beach village is a fairly accurate way to describe Grayton Beach. This 30A gem is home to the Red Bar which is one of the most famous restaurants in the Florida Panhandle. It’s a favorite destination for those that like to kayak and stand up paddle board. The sand at Grayton Beach State Park is so white and the dunes are so high they will make your head spin as Donald Trump would say… Believe Me.
