Grayton Beach

Grayton Beach, situated on the picturesque highway 30A in the Panhandle of Florida, holds the distinction of being the inaugural community along this stunning stretch. Nestled between WaterColor Resort and Blue Mountain Beach, Florida, this old-Florida beach town fully embraces the breathtaking Emerald Coast. With its crystal-clear turquoise waters, pristine sugar-white sand beaches, and vibrant natural vegetation, Grayton Beach has rightfully earned its status as a highly sought-after destination, attracting travelers from near and far.

The area is adorned with charming historic cottages and homes dating back to the 1800s, creating a sense of timeless charm. Alongside these historic treasures, you’ll find an abundance of restaurants, shops, and amenities catering to all types of visitors. Notably, the iconic Red Bar, which unfortunately burned down in 2019, has been rebuilt and is ready to welcome guests once again in 2020.

One of Grayton Beach’s most captivating features is its proximity to the Coastal Dune Lake, a 4,000-year-old natural wonder that plays a vital role in the local ecosystem. Beyond the breathtaking scenery and unique attractions, Grayton Beach offers a plethora of outdoor recreational opportunities. Whether you choose to kayak, fish, hike through rare scrub forests, or bike along 30A’s scenic byways, adventure awaits at every turn.

It’s worth noting that Grayton Beach is the only beach community along 30A that cannot be directly accessed form 30A. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience its charm and beauty.

Discover the allure of Grayton Beach, where tranquility meets excitement, and where every soul can find something to cherish.

What I love about Grayton Beach

Grayton Beach State Park

Grayton Beach State Park is one of the the most popular parks in Florida. The park is a 400-acre sliver of paradise featuring pristine sugar-sand beaches, a rare coastal dune lake and a wealth of nature. Its nature trail winds through a salt marsh, steep dunes and a coastal forest thick with twisted scrub oaks and magnolias.

Kayak, canoe or paddle board

Explore the backwaters of Western Lake, a 100-acre coastal dune lake surrounded by the natural areas of the state park.  Coastal Dune Lakes occur in only a few places around the world, so exploring this rare geological phenomenon is a treat.

Drive on the beach

Driving your vehicle on the beach is not allowed at most beaches along 30A. If you meet the requirements and obtain a permit, you can drive your vehicle at two accesses in Walton County: on Grayton Beach and Inlet Beach.
