For many, the greater South Walton area is a hidden gem that genuinely amazes them from the very first visit. In fact, just a few days spent here often makes visitors never want to leave. While many factors make the South Walton area a great place to live, one of the most alluring reasons is the beautiful beaches!


Inlet Beach

Named after the Phillips Inlet, Inlet Beach is the largest public beach access in South Walton. The north side of the beach features a public fishing dock, which sits on Powell Lake. This a popular spot to visit, whether it is for fishing or simply watching the sunrise. A boardwalk over the dunes offers an excellent opportunity for sightseeing, photos, and more. Additionally, there is a relatively new public restroom and shower facility at the end of South Orange Street to help wash off the sand at the end of your visit to Inlet Beach!

Blue Mountain Beach

Blue Mountain Beach is truly a national treasure. The immaculate white sand beach, combined with the breathtaking turquoise water, serves as a great way to remind ourselves that life truly can be beautiful! As a further compliment to the area’s natural aesthetic, gorgeous blue lupine flowers are scattered throughout. Furthermore, if you find yourself desiring a refreshing snack after your fun in the sun, you can get some delicious hand-made ice cream from the nearby Blue Mountain Creamery!

Grayton Beach

Located within Grayton Beach State Park, Grayton Beach is one of the top-ranked beaches in the United States due to its pristine sands and overall cleanliness!
