An exclusive beach resort with a lush nature preserve and world-class amenities

What do you get if you combine a fun-in-the-sun beach resort with the outdoor adventure of a state park? You get the unique community of WaterColor. The neighborhood is sandwiched between an infamous coastal dune lake, Western Lake, and the community of Seaside. Many of the local shops and restaurants are nestled along 30A, a famous stretch of road that connects some of Florida’s most iconic Gulfside communities.

WaterColor is a picturesque master-planned community. Houses here are similar in design, with wrap-around porches and metal roofs. The streets are lined with trees, and there is a surprising amount of lush foliage around every corner. To the south are the magnificent white sandy beaches on the Gulf of Mexico coastline. Residents can find a lush community teeming with rows of pine trees, pocket parks with fountains, and well-maintained walking and biking trails.

The elegant WaterColor Beach Club overlooks the Gulf and has several restaurants and three heated swimming pools with poolside cabanas. There is also Camp WaterColor, a premier venue featuring a restaurant, playground, basketball courts, two pools with waterslides, and a lazy river.

Altogether, the community of WaterColor has nine pools, five tennis courts, pickle and bocce ball courts, and a soccer field. An amphitheater, several piers, and a dock make this community shine above others, especially for music and boating lovers. Residents and visitors can rent a bicycle to tour the town or grab a kayak or stand-up paddle board at the Boathouse to experience the community’s world-class recreation. There is so much to see and do in WaterColor. Here, residents will enjoy resort-style living at its finest — where every day feels like a vacation.

WaterColor has a friendly atmosphere with an upscale beat. The luxurious WaterColor Beach Club and Camp WaterColor are exclusive to residents and guests of the resort. There is a complimentary trolley service that runs during the summer. However, most locals use golf carts or bicycles to navigate the neighborhood.

WaterColor is a planned community; therefore, special care was taken to ensure the community’s public spaces are walkable, well-kept, and large enough to accommodate festivals and neighborhood-wide events. Most of the shops and restaurants are located close by, allowing locals to easily stroll from one to the other.

WaterColor fosters a sense of community and sponsors several events that bring locals together. Hundreds of locals rub elbows at the Old Florida Holiday and Winter Market, where they enjoy horse-drawn carriage rides, eat s’mores, and socialize with friends and family.


WaterColor has excellent restaurants and shops. FOOW, which stands for Fish out of Water, is where locals go for upscale dining and fantastic views. This beachfront restaurant takes its surroundings to a new level, serving delicious seafood through innovative flavors and pairings. Beach Happy Cafe is just around the corner from FOOW and features sandwiches and wraps perfect for a quick bite or take-out.

Shop at Wine World’s The Wine Bar in WaterColor for a large selection of wines to take home, purchase as a gift, or pair with a meal. Great Southern Cafe is less than a mile down the road from The Wine Bar. With tasty seafood and southern fare, the Cafe has locals and tourists coming back for more time and time again.


WaterColor hosts many events that residents and tourists enjoy, like the Harvest Wine & Food Festival. It is one of the community’s premier annual events. This four-day event features wine tastings, delicious cuisine, and more. The Mountainfilm on Tour Festival is a two-night event held under the stars at the Marina Park Amphitheater. Locals love watching films handpicked from the Telluride Festival.

Cerulean Park is a premier gathering spot for festivals and other events throughout the year. When there isn’t a community gathering, residents can explore its tranquil green spaces, which are filled with water features, a butterfly garden, and a bubbling fountain. Meanwhile, adventure awaits at Grayton Beach State Park, an expansive oceanfront park known for its endless array of outdoor activities. Swimming, boating, paddling, and fishing are popular pastimes here. Dive just beyond the park’s shores to find the Underwater Museum of Art, an underwater sculpture garden.

A visit to WaterColor Beach Club is in order if you enjoy premier relaxation, deluxe amenities, and more. Sip cocktails at your poolside cabana, or take a walk along the beach.
