By Bella Douglas

Alys Beach is an idyllic gem hidden away on Florida’s gulf coast along highway 30A. It’s one of my very favorite places to vacation. Expertly designed, everything about Alys is breathtaking.

With its whitewashed buildings, Moorish architectural details, and courtyards, the little beach town feels worlds away.

Alys Beach’s design has been thought out and purposefully planned — down to the very last detail. Adhering to the urban design movement of New Urbanism, Alys promotes environmentally friendly practices via walkable and shared community spaces.
