Nestled among towering dunes and soaring pine trees, the WaterSound Beach community on the heart of Scenic Highway 30-A provides its residents and visitors with a sanctuary that successfully marries the spirit of neighborhood with the seclusion of a gated beachfront retreat. A generous mile of gulf frontage, numerous trails, pedestrian bridges, and wooden boardwalks distinguish WaterSound from other beach communities. WaterSound is a series of residential neighborhoods connected through nature trails, bridges, and wooded boardwalks, each with a meandering path that leads to the powder-white sand and crystal-clear water of the Emerald Coast.

Purposefully designed in accord with its magnificent surroundings, WaterSound’s town plan is renowned for its ability to complement the community’s relaxed yet significant architecture with its natural, stunning setting.

At first glance, the architecture resonates New England’s historic Shingle Style, but the deep porches, exposed overhangs, sheltering rafters, and congenial breezeways that characterize the homes are clearly rooted in the culture of Florida’s Gulf Coast. This sophisticated, stylish gated community offers a variety of cottages, homes, and upscale condominiums that are all thoughtfully positioned among the lush habitat.

Community amenities and events provided by St. Joe Club & ResortsSM serve to enhance the relaxed, resort-style living that radiates in WaterSound. Each residence within the WaterSound Beach community has access to four distinctively designed swimming pools, landscaped parks and green spaces, nature trails, exceptional golf courses, the WaterSound Beach Club, and a variety of boardwalks all offering direct access to the beach. Further, at the entrance of the WaterSound Beach community is the stunning security guarded GateHouse, home to the community’s fitness center and neighborhood, casual dining.

The genius combination of a private beach retreat neighborhood that welcomes exploration by the young and the young at heart with approachable and familiar yet stunning, award-winning architecture and design truly make WaterSound an unparalleled and special coastal setting along 30A.
