Nestled inside Grayton Beach State Park, you’ll find the laid-back, eclectic town of Grayton Beach. This well-loved paradise sports tree-lined and moss-draped side streets, you’ll understand why this tiny enclave is considered the heart and soul of 30A.
The hand-painted sign on the side of the road sums it up: “Nice Dogs, Strange People.” Grayton Beach is about as laid-back and organic as a beach town can get, from the old-style wooden beach bungalows to the “hippie kitsch” feel of the iconic Red Bar to the narrow neighborhood streets lined with live oaks.
But this is more than just a cool beach town. It’s home to the diverse coastal ecosystems of Western Lake and Grayton Beach State Park, and a gateway to a large expanse of sugar-white beach that is a haven for fishermen, boaters, and beachcombers alike.
