Welcome to WaterSound
A luxurious gated, one-of-a-kind planned community with beach access, putting green, and fabulous amenities. Explore WaterSound real estate!
WaterSound means “all paths lead to the sea”. This is a luxurious, gated community with fabulous amenities. WaterSound comprises three communities: Watersound Beach, WaterSound Peninsula, WaterSound Bridges, and Watersound West Beach. These communities unite the natural beauty of the beach and dunes with the modern amenities and conveniences of a planned community. The unique feature of these communities is connectivity. You can ride bikes throughout the communities and never get on 30A. In the early 1900s, much of what is now WaterSound was a wooded reserve owned by the St. Joe Paper Company. It remained this way until the early 2000’s when the St. Joe Company transformed this amazing landscape into a one-of-a-kind community. The architecture was inspired by the fishing villages on Florida's coast; many homes are painted in pastel colors and have large porches with white columns. It is a style that creates a friendly, inviting ambiance. The WaterSound real estate market offers a unique experience, found only in Florida.
WaterSound is known for its boardwalks and bridges winding through coastal dune lakes, pine forests, and pristine beaches with clear emerald green water and sugar-white sand. WaterSound has an intriguing array of amenities throughout the community, including pools, a fitness center, and private beach access. WaterSound Club is a full-service, private Gulf-front club that includes multiple restaurants, sunset bars, pools, tennis, pickleball, and a lazy river. The private beach here is incredible and not to be missed!
