Beach Personality: Enjoy Nature Without Giving Up Comfort
Grayton Beach State Park Review
Grayton Beach State Park is located on one of the most beautiful stretches of Florida beachfront. This area of Florida’s northwest coast is known the “Emerald Coast” because the water is a gleaming emerald green color in the sun. Additionally, Emerald Coast beaches are blessed with white quartz sand that isn’t only gorgeous, but also stays cool in the heat of summer.
The park itself is an amazing destination for nature lovers of all sorts. Along with the pristine beach, there are nature trails, interpretive programs, fresh and saltwater fishing, a boat ramp for non-motorized boats, and many opportunities for bird watching. Spend your entire vacation at Grayton Beach State Park if you want because there are camp sites and cabins available within the park. If you prefer to stay in a hotel or condo, Grayton Beach State Park is conveniently located to many seaside towns and makes a great day trip.
