Two more regional beach accesses are expected to open in 2020, in Miramar Beach and Seagrove Beach. This will bring the total number of regional beach access points from eight to 11 in South Walton.

Since August 2016, the TDC has purchased seven parcels for a total of 748 feet of beachfront to be used as regional access points. The new access points come with upscale amenities funded and maintained by tourism revenue.

The Dune Allen RBA is located at 5999 W County Highway 30A, Santa Rosa Beach.
