Keaton Beach Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 0 photos


Keaton Beach, FL is one of those unique places where time seems to stand still. It's quiet, laid back and where you'll find that rare atmosphere of friendly people.

This small rural waterfront community located on the Gulf Coast of Florida, has virutally remained untouched by over development, due to the fact that most of this county's coastline is owned by the State and will remain undeveloped.

If you're looking for a place to get away from it all, Keaton Beach is it!

Don't plan on your cell phone working here, because most don't.

What You'll Find At Keaton Beach

Keaton Beach has a natural beach, a 700 ft fishing pier, public boat ramp, marina, motel, lodge, three RV parks, restaurant and a convenience store.

What To Do At Keaton Beach.

Keaton Beach is known for it's great fishing and scalloping. It's only one of five counties in FL where scalloping is allowed, so you'll need to make reservations well in advance if you plan on scalloping (July 1st thru Sept 10th).

The local business and community association has several events during the year, one of the biggest is Santa's arrival by airboat in December. You can get all the info on Keaton Beach at

    A nice small town with a beach for a city park. We came here many times from our home in Valdosta 1992-95 time frame. No crowds, nice sand. Place was whacked pretty good by March 93 Storm of the Century, hopefully it's recovered.
