Dune Allen Beach

Dune Allen BeachJust east of Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, 30-A curves toward the beach and begins its most scenic stretches in the community of Dune Allen. Dotted with dune lakes and heavily wooded, this community is primarily residential.
The quiet enclave of Dune Allen offers residents a uniquely private retreat with easy access on bike or foot to the adjacent state park and the shopping and dining of nearby communities. Topsail Hill Preserve State Park encompasses 1,640 acres of stunning Gulf-front pine forests, including 14 natural wild plant communities from beach dunes to pine flatwoods. The park offers a wide variety of natural resources including 3.2 miles of secluded, white sand beaches with majestic dunes over 25 feet tall. Three rare coastal dune lakes provide excellent freshwater fishing.

Community Highlights

Dune Allen, mostly unchanged, includes many rental properties and private residences. The community is home to Oyster Lake, and many unique shops and gourmet gulf-front dining as well as Topsail Hill State Preserve.

Area History

Turpentine is the legacy of nearby Topsail Hill State Preserve, named after Topsail Hill, a high, picturesque dune standing 25 feet above sea level. A century ago, workers turpentined old-growth longleaf pine trees for caulking the seam of wooden ships, a key mode of transport. Known as the most pristine coastal property in Florida, the preserve is one of only two remaining natural populations of the nocturnal, endangered Choctawhatchee beach mouse.
