When you think of the typical beach town, you think of sandy white beaches and crystal blue waters. Seagrove Beach has those, but the town gets its name from the cove in the middle, covered with hickory, magnolia, oak, and sand pines.
The combination of the shady trees, the beach, and the diverse business environment make Seagrove Beach, Florida, a desirable place to live.
Between the beautiful landscape and the beaches, there is plenty of natural beauty to appreciate in and around Seagrove Beach. Lounge on the sugar-white beaches, or go paddle-boarding or swimming in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
If you’re interested in enjoying the outdoors but not the beach, there are plenty of lakes and state parks near Seagrove Beach. The Timpoochee Bike Trail is also a favorite of Florida residents and visitors and runs right through Seagrove Beach.
Here is an overview of some of the nearby outdoor activities you can explore:
Located less than a mile from Seagrove, Florida, Point Washington State Forest is more than 15,000 acres of ecologically diverse communities including sandhills, basins, prairies, flatwoods, and cypress swamps. Several rare or endangered species call Point Washington State Forest their home, including the American kestrel, flatwoods salamander, gopher tortoise, and the white-topped pitcher plant. You can also find the largest population of Curtiss sand grass in the world here. There are several hiking and biking trails through the forest, and it is also a popular park for camping.
If you want to explore an area that is not only beautiful but rich in history, you’ll love Eden Gardens State Park. This park is home to the charmingly renovated, historic Wesley House, where you can picnic in the gardens or enjoy a guided tour. There is also plenty of land and trails to hike through and plenty of water to kayak and fish in.
Eastern Lake is perfect for those who want to enjoy the water but would rather be somewhere more secluded and less open than the actual beach. The same sugary white sand can still be found at the beach, but the waters are a lot more shallow. Eastern Lake is a popular spot for canoeing, kayaking, and paddleboarding. There are also several pathways that are perfect for biking and hiking.
Another nearby gem is Deer Lake State Park. Surrounded by coastal dune lakes and Southern magnolias, it’s an ideal spot to fish, view wildlife, hike, swim, and picnic. There are two hiking trails, and pets are welcome.

The trail is just over 18 miles long and runs Scenic 30A Florida.
Seafood lovers will enjoy the famous grouper sandwiches and half-pound burgers at Seagrove Village Market or the casual dining experience at Old Florida Fish House. You can enjoy a different approach to seafood at the Latin Coastal Kitchen.
