Western Lake is one of Florida's coastal dune lakes that can be found in only a few locations worldwide. The southern half of Western Lake lies within Point Washington State Park. Coastal dune lakes are intimately connected to the sea through an inflow/outflow channel. The outflow doesn’t exchange water all of the time and the actions of sand, wind and tides cyclically close off the outflow while rainfall and ground seepage increases the fresh water. Eventually, high water forces open the channel again and a more tidal exchange begins to take place. Western Lake has constant sea water seepage so remains brackish most of the time. Western Lake is 214 acres and one of the largest dune lakes and most are considerably smaller. These waterways have the highest occurrences of rare wildlife species in the state, some of which are found nowhere else in the world.
