A funky little beach where everyone’s friendly and things hardly ever change. This tiny hamlet is the longest-standing community on 30A and has been consistently ranked as one of the top beach destinations in the country. Locals and visitors alike are passionate about protecting its one-of-a-kind charm. The streets are lined with trees and covered in oyster shells. Everywhere, you’ll see handmade store signs and spirited artwork. You may even spot a deer on the beach in the early morning hours. For years there were more dogs than people here––at least until the 1980s when tourism began to boom. Today, nightlife thrives with local hot spots to grab a drink, such as the famous Red Bar, Chiringo, AJs, Grayton Brewpub, and Black Bear Tap Room. Many think of Grayton Beach as the soul of 30A.
