The Western Lake

This is one of the most explored coastal dune lakes in Walton County. The lake can be accessed through Grayton Beach State Park. The water in Western Lake is relatively shallow and is primarily freshwater, but does have increased salinity from periodic overflows from the ocean during storms. Western Lake is tea-colored (due to vegetation decays, tannins leach into the water, making transparent, acidic water that is darkly stained, appearing of tea or coffee color), but the water in the lake is clean. Western Lake is perfect for paddleboarding where you can experience unique geographical features that are only found in a few places in the world!
