Bonfires off of 30A in Seagrove Beach. Are they permitted? YES!

Any other question about 30A, we would probably have an answer for ya, but this one…. we had to call around and look up! To our pleasant surprise we not only found the answer for you, but we also found a company that will come out to Seagrove Beach and Inlet Beach to set up the bonfire for you, for your family, friends and they will dispose of everything for you too!

First the important news,  The Permit! Now, as I understand it, if you wanted to handle all of this yourself then here is some additional information:  Where to obtain one? The person obtaining the permit must be present during the hours of the bonfire. The approved bonfire permit must be presented upon request of a Fire Official or Law Enforcement Officer. The South Walton Fire District reserves the right to check for permit compliance at any time.  PERMIT FEE: $50.00 Cash or Check. Please see the end of this page for Credit Card Payments. Bonfire permit applications are processed Monday through Friday, between 8a.m. and 4p.m. at: South Walton Fire District 911 N County Road 393 Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459 850-267-1298
