Point Washington is located on the southeast corner of the Choctawhatchee Bay, and is known for its pine forests, grassy bayous and unspoiled natural beauty. A few minutes away from the beaches of South Walton, the woods of Point Washington feel far away from the upscale beach houses of Scenic 30A.
Point Washington’s location between the bay and the Gulf of Mexico make it an ecologically interesting place. See both dolphins and alligators in the area, and visit the Point Washington State Forest, over 15,000 acres, where wild boars, bears and raccoons make their home in the scrub palm underneath the tall pine trees, and there are over 20 miles of trails for hikers, bikers, and runners. The centerpiece of Point Washington is Eden Gardens State Park. The grounds feature lush botanical gardens, sprawling lawns and breathtaking views of Tucker Bayou and the bay.
