For those who live or vacation in the area surrounding Scenic Highway 30-A in Northwest Florida, the steady growth and new construction are often points of interest. What will be created next? How many new hot spots will be cropping up in the coming months? In the fashionable and unique resort town of Alys Beach, the answer is a lotVIE caught up with the team at Alys Beach to discuss plans for the new beach club, the recently opened ZUMA Wellness Center, upcoming events, and other news on both the commercial and residential sides of real estate. Get the scoop below, and don’t forget to check out the town’s beautiful brand-new website at AlysBeach.com!

VIE: What’s new and exciting in Alys Beach this year? It seems like the town is really coming to life!

Alys Beach: So much activity is happening throughout town—new homes under construction, the Beach Club coming to life, condominium buildings under way, new retail and dining options soon to be announced, and a lot of planning for the future. We’re introducing a signature October event called Firkin Fête that we know will become a fun annual tradition for many as we usher in the crisper, cooler temperatures of fall.

VIE: We see that ZUMA Wellness Center has opened and is in full swing! Can you tell us a little about how homeowners and guests have received it, and what its offerings are?

Alys: The stunningly designed ZUMA Wellness Center has been well received by our owners and guests. Hundreds of people pass through its doors each day to exercise and train, get a massage, swim, or just relax in the serene outdoor setting. ZUMA has also become a place for friends and neighbors to connect over a cup of coffee or a delicious smoothie.

VIE: Can you give us a progress update on the Beach Club? What are some exciting features it will include?

Alys: The Beach Club, which will be a private club for Alys Beach homeowners only, broke ground last November. The venue, beautifully designed by Hart Howerton out of San Francisco, will have three pools, dining and lounging areas, and breathtaking Gulf and sunset views from a rooftop bar and terrace—not to mention an adjacent plaza that will be the primary beach access for owners and resort guests.

VIE: The Town Center is growing quickly! Its new commercial and residential buildings are beautiful. Can you tell us a little about The Camden & Whitby? Where is this pair of buildings located, and are there still residences available for purchase?

Alys: The Camden & Whitby, also designed by Hart Howerton, are located on the west side of the Amphitheater, right in the heart of town. They will add new energy to Town Center with retail on the bottom floors and residences on the top three levels. Our initial release yielded great results, and there are still two- and three-bedroom residences available. A variety of retail options are being considered right now, as a way to bring life to that section of the community.

VIE: Where did the names for The Camden & Whitby, The Lucian, and The May come from?

Alys: Camden and Whitby are names that our design team created. The Lucian and The May are named after the original homesteader of this land, Lucian May.

VIE: Where can our readers learn more or book their trip to Alys Beach?
