Artifical Reef in Development off Grayton Beach


A new amentity comes to Scenic 30A thanks to the South Walton Artificial Reef Association (SWARA). This month, SWARA deployed the first half of 58 artificial reef structures off of Grayton Beach State Park. This is the first of several snorkel and fishing reefs planned that will span across south Walton County.

Each reef structure is constructed with limestone rocks embedded in 5 foot diameter concrete plates. Each reef features a 10? diameter fiberglass piling sunk deep in the seabed. The structures are not more than 10 feet tall, resulting in a minimum authorized depth clearance of 6 feet at mean low water (MLW). The design is geared for snorkelers who will be able to peer down at marine life not too far from shore. 
When complete, the full reef will resemble the shape of a sea turtle and provide a home for many living organisms and marine life.

Until then, we know our owners and guests will be content relaxing on the beach, frolicking in the surf and enjoy the area’s rare coastal dune lakes.
