Fodor's Expert Review Grayton Beach State Park

Grayton Beach Beach Fodor's Choice

One of the Gulf Coast's most scenic spots, this 2,220-acre park is composed primarily of untouched Florida woodlands within the Coastal Lowlands region. It also has salt marshes; rolling dunes covered with sea oats; crystal-white sand and contrasting blue-green waters; and Western Lake, a 100-acre rare dune lake that you can explore by canoe and kayak (rentals are available). Other offerings include facilities for swimming, fishing, and snorkeling; an elevated boardwalk that winds over the dunes to the beach; and walking trails around the marsh and into the piney woods. Note that the "bushes" you see are actually the tops of full-size slash pines and Southern magnolias, which have been partially buried by the shifting dunes. Thirty fully equipped cabins and a campground provide overnight options. Accessible cabins, campsites, and beach access are also available. Amenities: parking; toilets; water sports. Best for: swimming; sunrise; sunset; walking.
