Ed Walline Regional Beach Access in Santa Rosa Beach is an ADA accessible walk that includes a viewing tower, restrooms, two picnic shelters, bike racks and a parking lot. During peak season there is usually a lifeguard on duty.


One unique feature to the Ed Walline Regional Beach Access is the toy box located on the shelter’s first level. The box displays “Need a toy - take a toy; Have a toy - leave a toy” and is full with things people have once left behind for others’ use. This box shows the inclusivity of South Walton and the strides the county takes to bring people together.


Before heading to the beach, know the surf conditions by taking note of the colored flag system.

Double red flags mean the water is closed for swimming due to powerful rip currents that can sweep even the strongest swimmers out to sea. Stay safe, check today’s conditions on our Beach Safety page.
