A friendly crowd of fishers, artists, and blissed-out vacationers can normally be found here, hanging out in friendly, family-run restaurants, or more likely enjoying life on the sensational sandy beach. Grayton Beach vaction rentals range from small and simple to alluringly luxurious, so you're bound to find one to suit.

Anglers of all ages and experience levels will be in their element, with redfish, Spanish mackerel, flounders, snapper, and many other highly-prized catches lurking beneath the waves. For a taste of the seafaring life, rent a pontoon boat and enjoy a leisurely day lounging under the sun. If you can drag yourself away from the coast, grab a paddleboard and explore Grayton Beach's hidden waterways. Or, simply grab a table at an outdoor restaurant, and feast on locally-caught seafood as you marvel at the sunset.

Grayton Beach's gleaming galleries

Grayton Beach has long been a haven for creative folk, and this is reflected in the village's vibrant cultural scene. The Studio Gallery is a long-established local institution, where you can peruse an eclectic array of paintings, sketches, jewelry and more, all hand-crafted by local artists and artisans. The Workshop by Ginger Leigh Designs is another must-see for culture vultures, packed with quirky collages and beeswax paintings. A short drive away, in neighboring Seaside, the Fusion Art Glass gallery is home to a vibrantly colorful array of sculptures, vases, vessels and glassware.

Year-round sunshine on Grayton Beach

This sliver of Florida sees a steady influx of visitors throughout the year, but Grayton Beach vacation rentals are in particularly high demand during the peak summer months of July and August. It can get sizzlingly hot and humid at this time, but ocean breezes and rain showers offer welcome relief. Spring is a great time to visit _ temperatures are generally agreeably warm rather than stiflingly so, and fewer out-of-towners makes it easier to find your own empty stretch of beach. Winters are often dry and sunny, but the weather is more conducive to bracing walks than sunbathing, while evenings can get chilly.

Grayton Beach State Park is a vast site encompassing fragrant coastal forests, lush lakesides, spectacular sand dunes, and pine flatwoods. Here, you'll find an abundance of trails which can be explored on foot or mountain bike. It's a haven for birdwatchers, with bald eagles, osprey, and all manner of captivating shore birds making their home here. If you fancy catching sight of the local marine life, join a boat trip and head off in search of gentle manatees and acrobatic dolphins.
