October Is Coastal Dune Lake Month!

Walton County has officially designated October as Coastal Dune Lake Month. This is a new designation and a unique way to honor our unique Coastal Dune Lakes through education and activities.

In celebration of the past 20 years of protection efforts, the board will host a month-long celebration to include community education and outreach, coastal dune lake cleanup activities, tours of the coastal dune lakes, restoration activities, and more. Here are events you can enjoy and participate in:

Every Saturday in October • DIY Coastal Dune Lake Clean-Up

Oct 5th & 19th • Lecture and Nature Trail Tour: Panhandle Outdoor Live

Oct 12th and 17th • Award-winning documentary on WFSU (PBS) Jewels of The Emerald Coast  

Oct 18th & 20thDeer Lake Restoration

While Coastal Dune Lakes are rare and only exist in four other places in the world (New Zealand, Australia, Madagascar, Oregon), we are fortunate to have 14 named Coastal Dune Lakes located along Scenic 30A’s 18-mile stretch of beaches. Here's a Map of Coastal Dune Lakes on 30A.

Living on a Coastal Dune Lake

Owners of Coastal Dune Lake properties are given specific guidelines to help protect the natural habitat, prevent erosion, and protect the water quality of the lakes.

In addition to serene views, most homes on the lakes provide a bit more exclusivity and privacy to accommodate waterfront setbacks and space between privately built docks. These unique living opportunities come in many shapes and styles. Here are just a few examples of properties currently available on a Coastal Dune Lake:
