There are a plethora of activities along the shores of 30A, so when it comes to planning a date night there’s certainly no shortage of options! Setting aside some time for two is definitely a must when visiting the gulf coast. From sunrise to sunset here are some of our top date ideas!




Sunrise Coffee Date


Wake up before the kids do and sneak in some time together before a day at the beach! For the active couple- biking during sunrise is a great (and romantic) way to get in some much needed alone time. Highway 30A is paved, so biking between towns is safe and easy. Parallel to the beach, it’s quite easy to find public access and wander down to the sandy dunes along the path. Finish up your ride by grabbing a coffee from one of our favorite local spots, Amavida or Modica Market! All of our cottages include bikes, so get ready to hit the pavement when you book with us!

Couples Massage


Nothing beats a little pampering after a long day in the sun, so add some R&R to your beach vacation by booking a massage for two at the Watercolor Inn & Spa! Open Monday-Saturday, this luxurious spa offers a wide range of services. From facials to full body massages, this oasis by the sea will surely help you both unwind and relax.

Live Music


Many bars and restaurants along 30A boast live music- so if a cozy table for two with some tunes is on your date night agenda, you’re in luck! From cover bands to local talent, these two 30A hot spots are always crowd pleasers:


Red Bar

The iconic Red Bar in Grayton Beach is known for its eclectic decor, great music, and tasty food and cocktails! Musical musings range from jazz to pop and everything in between.



Also located in Grayton Beach, this “go-to” spot for live music is the quintessential laid-back beach bar. Their menu offers fresh seafood, along with daily happy hours and open-mic nights!

Dinner with a View


Dinner with a view is something that the restaurants of 30A do best! Grab a glass of wine and watch the sun go down over the sparkling waters at two of our favorite beachside grub hubs:


Bud & Alleys

A staple here in 30A, Bud & Alleys is known for one of the best rooftop views in town! With delicious food and drinks, you won’t be disappointed. We suggest making a reservation as this hot spot is always busy!


723 Whiskey Bravo

Overlooking Seagrove Beach, this restaurant and bar offers “cool, casual and coastal” vibes! With a modern look and a sultry atmosphere, it’s an excellent option for those looking for a night of romance.

No luxury 30A vacation is complete without a date night! Try one of these ideas, book one of our cozy cottages, and experience a romantic day you won’t forget on the beaches of South Walton! Looking for more fun things to do while you’re here? Check out our blog!
