WaterSound Beach Club

Situated along one of Northwest Florida’s most breathtaking coastlines, WaterSound Beach Club invites you to unwind and relax, whether enjoying the Gulf breezes at the upstairs bar, comfortably settled in a lounge chair under a cabana at the pool, or basking in the sunshine on sugar-white sand beaches and turquoise waters– a place where traditions will continue for generations.

This club features two 7,000 square-foot zero-entry pools with towel service (one with 14,000 square-foot pool deck and the other with a 25,000 square-foot pool deck), two Har-Tru Hydro-Clay tennis courts and a restaurant/sunset bar all nestled next to a rare coastal dune lake.  All guests have access to the private beach with complimentary beach setups on a first-come, first-serve basis.
