“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Great beach, clean, fond, white sand and emerald-green water. The town is fun to walk through - takes one back to Old Florida times with beautiful cracker homes and beautiful gardens. Lots of cute shops - restaurants - homemade ice cream!!

“My favorite Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

I love Grayton Beach because it's privately owned and doesn't have all the hotels lining the beach! It's quiet, it's CLEAN, and it's BEAUTIFUL!

“A good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The thing that makes the Grayton beach different from the other beaches in fort walton is the added biodiversity in terms of ponds, dunes etc, in addition to the beautiful white sands. Some of the ponds had a pretty oily look to it...which was a little bit of a disappointment. There is a secret here...Right across the Grayton Beach, there is a pretty lovely walking/hiking trail. Though I only walked a little bit, a couple of charming ladies from Wisconsin told me while I was entering the trail that it want upto seven miles. They do have a warning for snakes, so make sure you are alert, have the right hiking boots etc.

“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.
