Scenic Highway 30A is known for its relaxed atmosphere, but Grayton Beach takes this to a new level. Tucked among pines and magnolias, this little coastal paradise is the best place for a no-stress vacation. Grayton Beach’s funky and eclectic vibe attracts the most friendly and laidback of personalities. You know, the type of people you’d like to take surfing and then go grab a beer afterward. The kind of people who never judge, and not only accept you as you are, but welcome you with open arms.
Grayton Beach’s outdoorsy setting also brings in active folks looking for adventure. The beach provides ample opportunities for swimming, snorkeling, diving, paddleboarding, kayaking, windsurfing, beach volleyball, frisbee, sandcastle building, and more. Nature trails can be used for walking, hiking, and biking. Grayton Beach State Park is home to a Western Lake, one of the area’s rare coastal dune lakes, which is great for fishing, paddle boarding, or catching the view. The park is also perfect for exploring the unique flora and fauna of the Emerald Coast ecosystem.
In addition to the outdoor scene, the village itself expands upon Grayton Beach’s laidback image. A variety of shops, galleries, and restaurants and bars dot the town’s landscape. The Zoo Gallery is a specialty shop that offers unique, hand-selected, decorative art pieces that stand out from the crowd – just like how Grayton Beach stands out among South Walton beaches! Art galleries such as Modus Photography and the Mary Hong Studio show off the passion that local artists have for the beach setting. Chiringo, Hurricane Oyster Bar & Grill, Chanticleer, and other restaurants provide an exciting environment to meet up with old friends or make new friends. All in all, it’s a refreshing community that makes it easy to sit back, relax, and enjoy every moment.
