Coastal Dune Lakes

South Walton is home to more than a dozen coastal dune lakes, with the most notable being Eastern and Western Lake along 30-A. Only a few places in the world are home to these natural wonders. Lakes create an outfall during high water levels and cause the salt and fresh water to mix. Both Eastern and Western Lake along 30-A provide opportunity for recreational activities such as paddle boarding and kayaking. The Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance, Coastal Dune Lake Advisory Board, and Florida Lakewatch are all organizations that continue the conservation efforts of these lakes. A map of all lakes can be found via the Coastal Lake Advisory Board.
