While there are plenty of dog-friendly places in South Walton, you can only walk your dog on the beach with a permit. 

If you are a resident here or property owner in Walton County, you can register your pet with a permit to walk your dog on the beach.

If you don’t have a permit (meaning if you aren't a resident or property owner), Here is a list of things to do and places to bring your pet.  

Seaside Farmers Market

Every Saturday 9-12 Rain or Shine

Rosemary Farmers Market

Every Sunday 9-1

Many restaurants in South Walton pride themselves on being dog friendly, such as Local CatchGreat Southern and The Craft Bar 30A. Most restaurants with outdoor seating allow dogs.

Visit two adorable locally-owned and run pet stores, Furry Fanatics or Bow Wow Meow, and buy your four-legged best friend a special treat or a 30A pet gear!

Several outdoor venues such as Baytowne Wharf allow you to walk around with your dog on a leash and enjoy the events together. Point Washington State Forest and Topsail Hill Preserve State Park are great places to go hiking or biking with your dog. They’ll love the fresh air and explorable trails! (Note: dogs are not allowed on the state park beaches, though).

If your dog is a water-lover, take them to one of the coastal dune lakes and do some stand-up paddleboarding.
