This sliver of Florida sees a steady influx of visitors throughout the year, but Grayton Beach vacation rentals are in particularly high demand during the peak summer months of July and August. It can get sizzlingly hot and humid at this time, but ocean breezes and rain showers offer welcome relief. Spring is a great time to visit – temperatures are generally agreeably warm rather than stiflingly so, and fewer out-of-towners makes it easier to find your own empty stretch of beach.
