The Seacrest Beach Community
Established in 1996, Seacrest Beach has become a popular destination for those longing to experience the best of Florida: sugar white sand, dunes, emerald water, spectacular breath-taking sunsets. Whether you want to stay all winter or just a week, there are vacation options that include luxury accommodations in modern beach homes and spacious pool side condominiums.
The familiar scent of suntan oil mixed with relaxing salt air travels on cool Gulf breezes here. Guests have been known to relax beside the Lagoon pool for hours in one of Seacrest’s cozy lounge chairs. Shaded by tall palms, it’s a popular spot for families to splash and play around a central fountain water feature. A snack bar offers cool beverages and refreshments for residents and guests.
The History of Seacrest
Seacrest Beach II began development in 1996 by George Dana “Doodle” Harris, President of Dana Beach Resorts, Inc. The Master Plan was approved by Walton County on December 29, 1996, but later amended five times to result in the current community layout on May 8, 2001.
Notice of Commencement for the Lagoon Pool was filed with the County in October, 1998. The pool was completed on May 25, 2000. Construction of the first homes was also completed in 2000.
The Seacrest Beach Owners Association (SBOA) took control of the Community from the Developer in October, 2004. In 2007, the Developer transferred the walking trails, the 14 acre Greenway and the interior common areas blocks to the SBOA. The Lagoon Pool and related common areas were purchased from the Developer in 2010.
The Seacrest Beach II development was conceived to create a compact, livable, and people- oriented community.
The Seacrest Beach developer’s vision was to bring about a revival of the lost art of place-making and wholesome living by incorporating landscaped streets, street lights, sidewalks and walking paths, front porches, alleyways, and rear garages into its plan. Paths and roads for pedestrians and cyclists connect in all directions, unifying the neighborhood.
The focus of Seacrest Beach was to integrate what is commonly termed “New Urbanism” design principles with environmental objectives. Conservation of native vegetation, guidelines for storm water retention, extensive use of pavers on lanes and byways, and environmentally-friendly practices in building conventions and materials choices have demonstrated the community’s intent of being both ecologically sound within the community and a contiguous extension of the natural geographic area.
Centered within the community is the Seacrest Lagoon. This 378,000-gallon pool is one of the largest private pools in the state of Florida, and is open year-round from 9am – 10pm for Seacrest residents and guests. The amphitheater is a grassy area where concerts, movies, and weddings are held. It is also great for a pick-up game of Bocce or Frisbee throwing.
From March through October, the Seacrest Tram service offers transportation to and from the designated tram stops in the neighborhood to the beach or the Lagoon. Simply walk out your front door go to the nearest tram stop and then call for pickup. The tram will arrive within fifteen minutes. The tram starts running every day at 9:00 AM and the last pickup from the beach is 5:30 PM seven days a week.
Seacrest Beach enjoys a deeded beach access at the entrance of the neighborhood, across Hwy 30-A, through the Sunset community. Seacrest residents and guests may walk through the pedestrian boardwalk, or ride the tram through the easement.
The Seacrest Beach Homeowners’s Association is proud to have SeaOats Beach Service act as our ambassadors down at the beach. You can reserve beach chairs or setup a beach bonfire by visiting their on-line reservation portal or give them a call at 850-951-3632.

Over 1.35 miles of shaded walking trails winding through the community.
