A coastal dune lake is a rare ecosystem that only occurs in only a few places around the world. Northwest Florida is home to 15 of these rare lakes that can both fresh and saltwater as they exchange with the Gulf of Mexico. It is the largest concentration of dune lakes in the world, and the lakes are strictly protected by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. WaterColor surrounds the largest coastal dune lake in Walton County, Western Lake. There is a 300-foot protection zone around the lake that prohibits any disturbance to the area.
