So, whether you are looking to lounge, dip your feet, go for a lap or splish-splash about with the kiddos, you’ll have plenty of pools to choose from as a guest of WaterColor Inn. Which will you pick?

Over the past two decades, WaterColor Inn has become a beloved family beach vacation tradition, thanks to its convenient location on 30A, comfortable accommodations, distinguished service and family-friendly resort amenities. And this year, just in time for its 20th anniversary, WaterColor Inn is unveiling a major expansion that will not only add guests with another pool to enjoy but also cement it as the ultimate family vacation destination in South Walton. That’s because with 10 pools, WaterColor Inn now boasts the most pool accesses on Scenic Highway 30A – providing families with plenty of options for basking in the Northwest Florida sun, just steps away from the area’s iconic sugar-white-sand beaches.
