“Eclectic Done Right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Grayton has one of the best beaches in SoWal and still has the character of the town that was there for generations before the building boom of the past 20 years. If laid back is your style then your gonna love Grayton.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Has some wonderful restaurants and little boutiques. And, of course, the beach is so beautiful. Actually all the beaches along the Emerald Coast are beautiful. +

“a quiter beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Very nice beach away from the hustle and bustle of Destin/Fort Walton Beach and Panama City. Slightly out of the way but its worth the drive. I suggest driving Hwy 30 the entire length from US 98 near Sandestin to US 98 near Panama City, its a scenic drive along the coast.

“Beautiful white Gulf sands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This area has the same beautiful sands of the Destin and Sandestin area, but usually with a few less tourists crowding the beaches. It is increasingly a place for events (to the chagrin of the locals, I'm afraid). But so much more peaceful than the nearby Seaside-->Seagrove area. In addition to personal homes for rent, there is a state camp ground and an area of state cabins - not necessarily cheap, but in a more secluded area and within walking distance of the beach. There are also wheelchair accessible ramps leading down to the beach from the cabin area.

“Been Many Times”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Less crowded than the ones west. It's clean although the mens room could use a good bleach. The campground as I remember it is carved into the woods. Better than the bluestone RV park they call a campground ! Ever tented on bluestone next to generator. The real Florida. . . .according to FL state Park system.
