The Coastal Dune Lakes
What is a dune lake? A dune lake is formed when water from the ocean makes its way behind a system of towering dunes creating a lake. Grayton Beach State Park offers three separate dune lakes making it an ideal place to enjoy birding, paddleboarding, kayaking, and more. The dune lakes provide a nice break from the beach and an opportunity to explore some of the rarest sites in the world.
One of the best things about Grayton Beach State Park is the variety of active wildlife around the park. Witness the loggerheads and green sea turtles burrowing their nests tightly into the sand. Bring the binoculars along and catch a glimpse of sea birds, bald eagles, and osprey. The park is even home to Florida black bear, white-tailed deer, and grey foxes. See it all during your next visit!
