As one of South Walton’s most laid back communities, Grayton Beach is also the oldest, having been established in the early 19th Century and celebrating its 100th birthday in 1990.
With a mix of old and new, funky and fresh, Grayton Beach is a great place to look back into history and reminisce about the way life used to be. Fortunately, things have not changed much in Grayton Beach over the years. As you walk through this laid-back community, it is easy to lose yourself and forget about the hustle and bustle of your normal life. Times appear simpler as the narrow, tree-lined roadways guide you along a canopy of Magnolias and Oaks.
While it may appear to be a sleepy, quaint getaway, Grayton Beach boasts a very vibrant day and night life. From unique beach shops to locales like the iconic Red Bar, this beach town offers something for everyone! Grab your dog and take a walk on the beach. Dip your toes in the glassy, emerald waters so unique to this stretch of the Gulf Coast. Head uptown with friends or family for a day of shopping or an evening of socializing. Stay a day, and you will want to spend your entire life in this funky neighborhood.
With its trails, cabins, and unspoiled beauty, Grayton Beach State Park is the gem of Grayton Beach and probably the community’s most notable claim to fame with almost 2,000-acres of adventure. Hikers and bicyclists can enjoy more than four miles of trails throughout the pine flatwoods. Options for overnight stays include modern cabins and a full-facility campground.
