Grayton Beach, Florida is a quintessential old-Florida beach town located on the Emerald Coast. Boasting crystal clear turquoise waters, sugar-white sand beaches, and lush natural vegetation, it’s easy to see why Grayton Beach is one of the most popular destinations in the state. The area features charming historic cottages and homes that were built in the 1800s, as well as restaurants, shops, and other amenities that cater to travelers of all kinds.

In addition to its stunning scenery and unique attractions, Grayton Beach offers plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities for visitors to enjoy. Kayaking, fishing, hiking trails through rare scrub forests, bike trails that meander along 30A’s scenic byways – these are just a few of the activities available in Grayton Beach. Whether you’re looking for an idyllic escape or an adventure-filled vacation spot, Grayton Beach has something for everyone!
“A funky little beach town full of free-spirited folks with a laid-back attitude. The narrow roads are shaded by southern magnolias, towering pines and moss-draped oaks. The salt air is ever present and so is the fine white sand covering the worn floors of our old beach cottages.”
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.
