Water Activities



With 26-miles of shoreline along the Gulf of Mexico, easy access to the Choctawhatchee Bay and 15 rare coastal dune lakes, spending time on the water in South Walton is a breeze.

Not only can you lounge along the sugar-white sand beach and turquoise water, you can drop a line in the Gulf and Bay and reel in the big one on one of South Walton's local charter boats or you can rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard and glide atop the water soaking in the natural scenery. 

No matter how you choose to enjoy South Walton's waterways, there's no doubt that a day on the water will create lasting memories.
