Beautiful preserved dunes. Not as crowded as other beaches, close to Sea Side village. Beautiful warm water. Very clean. Loved it.

My group was one of several over this past 4th of July weekend that was told to leave a spot we had settled on Grayton Beach by the Walton County sheriff. In Florida, with very, very, few exceptions beach front property is in the public domain from a point measured as the mean high water mark on the beach to... More

We rented our house called " Abba Cabana" situated in the secluded quite neighborhood of Gulf Trace. Just a bike ride away from Grayton Beach and the Famous eatery, The Red Bar! Abba Cabana was booked through 360 Blue properties. They were wonderful and helpful to meet all our needs. Our neighborhood is right off the famous drive called 30A.... More

If you are looking for a great fishing experience look no further than Captain Mike Valentino's boat. I took a group of four guys on Mike's boat and we had a blast. He knows where the fish are and he and his crew are really nice! We caught tons of large red snapper and four large King Mackerel. As an... More

This is NOT a Ft. Walton Beach attraction, and to get there, you have a drive of 30+ miles through over an hour of thickly congested traffic, during any time of the year when the water's warm enough to enjoy the beach. We'd heard the area was family-friendly, but found that it was certainly NOT! Parking is a huge problem... More

Wherever you are staying near this area, it is a beautiful drive to get to Grayton Beach - the Beach road is so pretty with lots of condos and hotels, and restaurants, reminds you of yesteryear in Florida - not highly commercialized like a lot of the other places in the general area. Not nearly as congested as Destin, etc.... More

The scenery, food choices, shopping choices and atmosphere are super. Never a disappointment. Favorite restaurant is the funky Red Bar, but the choice of high end choices is endless. The best white beaches in the world. Summers are very busy, so you may want to plan around that.

Parked in the State Park at Grayton......5$ charge, but well worth the price. Good facilities and many interesting walks....access to the beach is easy. The sand is white quartz......Looks very much like the beaches all along the coast minus the hotels......instead sand dunes are still in place and the sea is a beautiful azure......so very unspoilt. Saw Ospreys, sandpipers, many,... More

Red Bar is not to be missed if you are near 30A. Consistantly excellent food. Great service. Great jazz! Very small and crowded though. Keep that in mind if taking children. No reservations. Long wait. Worth the wait! Great value.
