Winter or summer there's nothing like the sound of the waves and breeze in your face.

“Safe and clean”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

The seawall provides a very nice walkway for biking, walking, and jogging. We always feel safe riding our bikes on the seawall. It has beautiful view of the gulf, easy access to the beach,benches, numerous shops and restaurants across the street and is just a lot of fun.

“Beautiful gulf view”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

The seawall is a nice way to stroll the beach and enjoy the view of the Gulf - not obstructed by condo after condo like so many resorts.

“How could you NOT drive/walk the Seawall”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

A Corp of Engineers marvel. If you read the story of its construction, you would not believe what these folks accomplished in the early 1900s, without the benefit of the heavy machinery now available. A huge monument to man's building skill.
