Start your day at Fonville Press

Voted the town with the “Best Aesthetic”, Alys Beach, located on Highway 30A along the northwest Florida panhandle, begins with sheer beauty.  The bone-white beaches and the turquoise Gulf of Mexico play off bright-white buildings with exotic lines.

MORNING COFFEE at Fonville Press where they pour terrific coffee, sell books and newspapers, and have such an inviting courtyard, so inviting you won’t want to leave!

ALYS BEACH features a 1,500-foot-long strip of sand so pristine, you’ll have a hard time convincing yourself every morning that it’s where you actually live or own a second home.

But there’s more to this development along Florida’s Scenic Highway 30A,  Alys Beach’s explicitly green design features streets of permeable pavers that run perpendicular to the Gulf. The landscapes are of largely drought-resistant plants to reduce water consumption.

In Alys Beach escaping is an art form and enjoying the relaxed coastal lifestyle is a way of life. Within the beauty and serenity of Alys Beach, there are many options to play, relax, reconnect, dine, and embrace a healthy, active lifestyle.

My team and I are a highly skilled, knowledgeable, energetic sales group who utilize a “clients first” approach in our real estate business. This approach has elevated us in being ranked in the top producing .05% of all realtors on the east side of 30A for the last eight years. We focus our efforts specific to 30A and the luxury, high-end segment of the market.

Feel free to contact us when you are ready to live or own a second home in Alys Beach.

The HUB 30A

The HUB on 30A is a great night hotspot on the Eastern End of 30A. It is a great family place and it offers many activities year round. There are multiple food trucks and restaurants throughout the HUB. There is always music playing and it is a very family friendly place. They will play all of the major sporting events on their big screen and they offer live music on most nights.

Be ready to empty your wallet when you come because it can get very pricey. They offer adult beverages to the adults and they ID everyone. It is a wonderful place on 30A that everyone should visit when they vacation here. We love the HUB and we will see you there!

The annual 30A Wine Festival is held at Caliza Pool. It’s the place to be for fine wine and amazing food.

Caliza Pool hosts happy hours which are well attended and serves dinner by the pool.

Kids and their parents love Fonvile Press for snacks and a place for the kids to play while adults meet and visit.

The Cypress pond wetland area boardwalk is a way to explore natural vegetation and wildlife.

Lake Marilyn is good for strolling around. Cross Somerset Bridge for magnificent views.

Digital Graffiti is held every June. Artists project their art onto  Alys Beach’s white background in the evening and create beautiful images that undulate and seem to melt on the walls.
