Grayton Beach may be a small beach village size-wise, but it certainly packs a memorable punch. Mostly tucked inside the well-preserved Grayton Beach State Park, this tiny town was named Most Beautiful Beach in America by the famous “Dr. Beach.” Since it’s made up of mostly parkland, Grayton Beach has a wonderful, untouched vibe that adds to the beauty and peaceful scenery. Let their unofficial slogan—Nice Dogs, Strange People—summarize the feel of this funky oasis.

Yes, of course, there is an absolutely breathtaking beach here. But the coastal attractions don’t stop there. Grayton Beach is also home to Western Lake, a calm coastal dune lake that occasionally flows over and into the Gulf of Mexico, creating a rare and unique oceanside ecosystem. This fantastic natural wonder is extremely popular with local fishermen, kayakers, and paddleboarders.
Filled with coastal forest and sweet-smelling southern magnolia trees that sway in the gentle Gulf breezes, Grayton Beach State Park is a nationally ranked and protected stretch of oceanside nirvana that your whole group will love to explore together.
Places to Eat and Art Studios
When visiting Grayton Beach, you simply must stop by Red Bar for a bite to eat. The original building was destroyed by a tragic fire in 2019, but has been rebuilt and now resides in a beautiful new building that re-opened less than a year later. Their amazing menu includes everything from mouth-watering crabcakes to baked, stuffed eggplant. And they even host dozens of annual holiday-themed parties, special events, and lots of live music.
With such a proudly eclectic reputation, it’s no wonder that Grayton Beach is also home to a fantastic artistic population as well. Make some time to visit Blue Moon Studios while you’re here, and browse through the lovely local photography. Book more fun things to do in 30A right on our website.
