This Mediterranean inspired beach town was founded and developed by Birmingham, Alabama based EBSCO, and named after the founder’s granddaughter, Alys. You’ll first notice Alys Beach when you drive between the massive white butteries at the entrance. Everything about Alys looks different than most everything else on famous 30A and you may feel as if you’ve been teleported to some beach town in another country. Rest assured you’re still in the good ole US of A, just a rarer part of it. Alys Beach is still very much a work in progress and should continue to build out and grow for many years to come, though it’s already a great place to rent a house for a week… or buy for a lifetime. From the expansive resort style Caliza Pool to George’s restaurant to Fonville Press, Alys is a unique coastal getaway like none you’ve probably visited in this country, and that’s what makes it so special. Renting for a week in Alys Beach certainly isn’t cheap, with prices upwards of $8,000 to $12,000 per week for a house, however if you have the means I’d highly suggest taking the week.
