We are dedicated to preserving and conserving the
history of Inlet Beach through responsible development.

Inlet Beach is named after Phillips Inlet at Lake Powell.  In the mid 20th century the area was known as Soldiers Beach as land was given to veterans returning from World War II via a lottery system.  Soldiers could buy 1.25 acres of land for $50 if they agreed to build a small house. Only a few of these houses remain today.

Walton County and the Inlet Beach Neighborhood Plan identify Inlet Beach as being bordered on the south by the Gulf of Mexico, on the north by Lake Powell, on the east by Bay County and Camp Helen State Park and on the west by Winston Lane and West Shore Drive.”

While the quaint nature of days gone by is mostly gone we are dedicated to responsible future development.

HIBNA membership is available only to residents and owners in Inlet Beach. It is overseen by a small volunteer board, elected by members.

Statement of Purpose

The purposes of this Association shall be: to bring to light and disseminate important information impacting the neighborhood; to be especially concerned about preserving the local environment, especially our beaches, dunes, scrub oak and pine, the purity and sufficiency of the fragile aquifer upon which Inlet Beach depends for drinking water, and finally concern for all plants and animals native to our unique environment; and to provide a springboard for action with respect to representing the best interests of our Inlet Beach neighborhood--within the South Walton Community Council, Walton County, the State of Florida and the United States Government in whatever forums as may be appropriate.
