Best Outdoor Space: Outstanding Architecture
From the highway, Alys Beach is clearly a world unto itself, marked by the unified aesthetic created by the clean lines and crisp white of the buildings.
Pairs of stylized structures reminiscent of dovecotes flank the road at either end of the stretch of Scenic Highway 30A that passes Alys Beach.
Myriad cupolas and rooftops create a visually interesting roofscape, one of the hallmarks of Alys Beach’s distinctive style.
Moisture-resistant woods like Western red cedar are used for arbors and trellises. Their use will guarantee years of service, while their appearance will merely take on a patina with age.
