Grayton Beach State Park
Salt spray and wind pruning, two of natures landscaping tools, are seen everywhere. What sometimes appears to be bushes in the dunes are often full-size live oaks and southern magnolia trees with only their tops protruding from the drifting sand. Also found within the park boundaries are pine flatwoods, scrub and salt marsh. Scenic Western Lake is a rare coastal dune lake found only in Walton County, Florida and is ringed by extensive salt marsh. This beach is consistently ranked among the most beautiful beaches in the United States.
