Our Village By The Sea
Carillon Beach is a charming seaside village which offers guests a unique holiday experience. The beach extends almost a mile and can be accessed through eight (8) dune walkovers, each with its own unique design and built-in benches offering a panoramic view of the ocean. Wherever you are staying in Carillon, a dune walkover is only a short walk away.
Three beautifully-designed pools are strategically placed throughout the community. The Beach Club Pool is located directly on the Gulf – a combination not found in any other Panhandle community. The chaise lounges are made of ipe wood which is known for its beauty and durability. Two large covered verandas with couches and chairs overlook the pool and the Gulf. From the pool deck, there are steps directly to the beach. What could be better?
As the name suggests, the Lake Carillon Pool overlooks Lake Carillon, which offers views of the Carillon Beach Inn, the Meeting House and Lake front homes. The Lake Carillon Pool boasts a in-pool seating area with multiple water jets.
The Bellview Park Pool is the largest of the three pools and has an adjoining kiddie pool. This is a family friendly pool. There is a shaded pergola next to the kiddie pool so that parents can keep an eye on their small children. Adjacent to the pool is Bellview Park which has a large green space for throwing a frisbee or playing catch. There is also a newly installed basketball court, two tennis courts, a fort, swings and king of the hill (a small hill with a path to the top, perfect for playing king of the hill). Children and adults will enjoy everything that Bellview Park has to offer.
The Promenade, a brick-lined walkway across the community, shaded by a canopy of trees, runs from Bellview Park to the Meeting House and Village Green. The Meeting House provides a beautiful two story space for community events including art shows, non-denominational services, weddings, reunions, and family gatherings. Next to the Meeting House is the Village Green a large green space overlooking Lake Carillon which hosts outdoor concerts (“Grooving On The Green”), wedding receptions, the annual Easter Egg Hunt and other community-wide activities.
At the center of the Community is the Carillon, a beautiful bell tower that chimes at the quarter hour, half hour and full hour. Benches surround the Carillon. This allows everyone to enjoy the ringing bells whose melodies can be heard throughout the Community.
Carillon Beach is one of the few gated beach communities in the Panhandle. The result is a peaceful retreat, with no busy streets, and no crowds, a place where everyone can enjoy a wonderful beach holiday.
