One of the most expansive neighborhoods along 30A, Seagrove was initially named for the thick grove of trees that surrounded it. With a combination of simple Old Florida homes mixed with updated beach houses and cottages, Seagrove retains its retro charm with the decades-old canopy of oak trees, magnolias, and pine trees that still stand today. Along with Grayton Beach, Seagrove was one of the earliest settlements along Scenic Highway 30A. With Western Lake (and now Watercolor) separating the two communities, there was no connecting road until Scenic Highway 30A was paved many years ago.
Seagrove has an eclectic mix of styles sprinkled throughout its wooded land and beach front property. Original concrete block homes sit on the same street as expansive modern beach homes and that’s part of the charm. Palmeira Villas At Seagrove Beach is a Mediteranean-style gated neighborhood in the heart of Seagrove Beach on the north side of Scenic Hwy 30A.
Seagrove is a colorful community with many boutique shops and some of the most popular dining on 30A including Seagrove Village Market, Café Thirty-A, V at Seagrove, 723 Whiskey Bravo, and Old Florida Fish House. Fresh seafood, delicious food and southern hospitality reign supreme at each of these, though the atmospheres vary from laid-back dives to white table cloth fine dining.
Locals and visitors alike enjoy jogging, biking or walking a dog along the paved trails that line 30A. Seagrove is also home to several of the area’s rare coastal dune lakes. Eastern Lake is a large water body with homes surrounding and plenty of activity as the water’s edge reaches the Gulf while Deer Lake is a serene escape next to Deer Lake State Park.
Seagrove Beach is approximately 25 miles east of Destin and 29 miles west of Panama City Beach in the panhandle of Florida. Seagrove Beach offers single family homes, home sites, town homes and condominium projects.
