Heading to the easternmost end of 30A allows visitors to travel back in time to a day when Florida’s natural environment remained untouched. Inlet Beach sets itself apart from other areas of South Walton because of its emphasis on preserving the natural splendor of Florida while creating a vacation experience unlike any other. Deemed the oasis of “Old Florida,” Inlet Beach marries the organic beauty of white sand beaches and coastal dunes with eco-friendly modern amenities and sustainable architecture.
Inlet Beach Cobia Reef Hunt
Cobia Reef was installed in 2017 as part of the South Walton Artificial Reef Association program. This particular artificial reef is about 970 off the shore of Inlet Beach, Florida. If you use the Orange Street Regional Beach access and walk about 50 paces to the west you'll find two large Yellow Pole Markers that point to where Cobia Reef is located. It's a great spot to snorkel and fish just off of Inlet Beach!
