Grayton Beach is a small, undisturbed village in Northwest Florida and was the first community established in the area now known as South Walton. Located along the Gulf of Mexico between Pensacola and Panama City, Grayton Beach is home to a designated Blue Wave Beach and Grayton Beach State Park.
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.
The town of Grayton Beach is mostly nestled inside Grayton Beach State Park and spreads right down to the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. Ahhh – the beach! Named as the most beautiful beach in America by “Dr. Beach” – it’s wide and clean and a genuine piece of paradise. Just off the beach you’ll find the famous Red Bar – a must visit for all our visitors – great food, drinks, music and an interior decor you have to see to believe.
The Grayton Beach state park has a 4.5-mile scooter/biking trail that will take you through the forest. Outside the park is the Walton County paved walking/scooter path that runs the full length of County Road 30-A through all of the seaside villages of South Walton.
