A 2022 Guide to Seagrove, Florida
Encompassing two miles of coastal 30A’s stretch of scenic highway, Seagrove, Florida is a luscious new-meets-old Florida-style community characterized by verdant oak and magnolia trees and stunning emerald coastline. Largely residential, Seagrove Beach sits between new urban mecca Seaside and ultra-luxe Alys Beach. The fact that its neighbors are better-known is a big reason why Seagrove, Florida is a favorite for many a beach lover.
Nature & Hiking Trails Abound
The natural splendor of Seagrove truly cannot be beat. As noted, there’s an abundance of trees. Nature trails and hiking trails that can also be used for biking snake through this beautiful 30A beach vacation destination making it a popular draw for outdoor enthusiasts. It’s one of the most laid-back areas along 30A.
The Cassine Trail located in the heart of Seagrove at the end of Cypress Street is one of Seagrove, Florida’s best-kept little secrets. Cassine is privately-owned, so if you drive, park off of 30A, but if you’re walking or biking from your condo, then you’ll have no problem entering the trailhead at Cassine Gardens. The turnaround at Eastern Lake is a beautiful place to stop and soak in the scenery.
There’s also a trailhead for the Eastern Lake Trail System that’s part of the Point Washington State Forest in Seagrove across from Clay Garden & Gifts. It’s a wonderful walk through the wetlands.
While the beaches in Seagrove are just as beautiful and wonderful as the whole of 30A, the nature hiking and biking options can’t be beach. There’s so much to do here!
