5 Free or Low-Cost Ways to Enjoy Your Time at the Beach

You have finally arrived!  You’re ready to enjoy your beach trip to the fullest, maybe indulge in a great restaurant, listen to some live music over drinks, order some food to go and bring it back to your perfect vacation spot.  Here are a few other activities you can consider while you’re here that are low cost or, in some cases, free!

The beach is free entertainment daily. The gulf waters and white sand are most likely the reason for your visit in the first place!  Whether you rent chairs and an umbrella or sit on the sand with your own towel and cooler, a day at the beach gives you much needed Vitamin D and relaxation.

Stand Up Paddle Boards are fun for most any age. Rent them using our Posh Beach Rental concierge service, they come in a variety of sizes.

Ride a bike. The preferred method of transportation around here is definitely bicycles. Scenic Highway 30A stretches for around 19 miles and hugs the Gulf of Mexico coastline with some unforgettable coastal scenery. The rare coastal dune lakes are a treat in themselves, sprinkled all along Hwy 30A with their unique ecosystems and natural beauty. Let us help you with bike rentals.

The Timpoochee Trail, spanning 18.6 miles winds past dune lakes, state parks, and all of the gorgeous gulf coast communities, is perfect for the entire family. Riding a bike or hiking, what a great way to experience South Walton. With mileposts along your trail you can easily familiarize yourself with Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton, WaterColor, Seaside, Seagrove, WaterSound, and Rosemary Beach and choose the ideal shopping points for casual coastal dining and boutique shops.

Pool Play – some days you want to lay next to the pool with a good book and drink in hand. Whether your vacation rental offers a private pool or you have access to exclusive community pools, by the water is the place to be.
