Alys Beach homes are architectural masterpieces! If there is one place that is a must see on tne Gulf Coast and 30A then this is it. It is said that inspiration for the community was gleaned from Bermuda and perhaps it was. However, it is easy to see Germanic, French, Moorish, Bavarian and many other influences in the amazing buildings that make up architectural wonder.
Cool, whitewashed alleyways remind one of Greece. Waterways and bridges are seen in the back streets. Arches and towers, tall windows and cobblestones. Shutters on windows and cool colonnades.
Leading down to the beach are a variety of interesting, if expensive shops, cafes and novelty stores. Eat on the street Parisian style!
This is an upmarket, upscale and up there with its inspiring architecture and calm surrounds. A tourist resort and destination for sure but still a place where one can wander through the quiet streets and marvel.
