ABOUT Point Washington
Located just a hop and a skip from Grayton and Seagrove beaches, Point Washington is a virtual estuary for local living. Nestled in the Point Washington State Forest, this ‘Bay and Bayou’ front paradise is characterized by old and new developments spanning several square miles of sleepy roads, majestic live oaks, and family living.
With direct access to the intercoastal waterways, Point Washington was founded in 1890 as a sawmill town. Remnants of this early growth are still present today. Namely her bayous and canals… which have been retro-purposed as gateways to a true sportsman’s paradise– the Choctawhatchee Basin and the Gulf of Mexico.
While quiet and ‘deceptively isolated’, Point Washington is located just a couple miles through the state forest from 30A, and a short drive from attractions such as Grand Boulevard and Pier Park. It’s reasonable to say that we locals tried to keep her a secret for as long as we could hold out.
