WaterColorGulf Views & Outdoor Adventure


Wide porches and Florida-style homes set the stage for multi-generational gatherings.

WaterColor is home to one of South Walton’s most picturesque coastal dune lakes, Western Lake. You can rent a kayak or stand up paddleboard (SUP) from the WaterColor Boathouse and spend your days paddling the lake, or else hike and bike your way through Grayton Beach State Park and Point Washington State Forrest.

The architectural stylings of the WaterColor Inn & Resort are perfect for large families and multi-generational family vacations, and the wide front porches and Florida-style homes complement South Walton’s natural beauty.

With rooms overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, the WaterColor Inn is home to the award-winning FOOW (Fish out of Water) restaurant, as well as The Gathering Spot. The panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico from the outdoor patio at FOOW offer one of the most impressive views in all of South Walton.

Along Hwy 30A, The Wine Bar showcases an enticing happy hour where you can sit and sip while sharing a gourmet cheese plate, a fire roasted brick oven pizza or indulging in the Red Snapper picatta. It’s the perfect way to relax after spending the day browsing the local shops and exploring beautiful Cerulean Park with your family.

Each year WaterColor plays host to the MountainFilm on Tour Festival, a 2-night outdoor film festival dedicated to educating, inspiring, and motivating audiences, and the Harvest Wine & Food Festival, a three-day event featuring celebrity winemaker dinners, an al fresco reserve tasting and grand tasting showcasing more than 250 wines.

A visit to WaterColor offers a relaxing small-town feel, with upscale amenities and a world-class beach, perfect for relaxing and connecting with loved ones.
