Cape San Blas Vacation Information
From the moment you arrive in Cape San Blas, you’ll know you’ve found a Florida vacation spot where you can truly get away from it all! Located in Gulf County, Fla., Cape San Blas is on a paradise-like peninsula separating St. Joseph Bay from the Gulf of Mexico. Perfect for families and outdoor enthusiasts, Cape San Blas boasts miles of secluded white sand beaches with calm shallow waters where you can discover “old” Florida on the Forgotten Coast—and forget about traffic, crowds and high-rises! You will find a wide range of small condominiums and beach house accommodations on Cape San Blas with many rentals allowing pets to go hand-in-hand with the pet-friendly beaches.
Vacations to Cape San Blas always include trips to the Cape San Blas Lighthouse and St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, famous for its spectacular 50-foot sand dunes! You’ll need an extra week on the Cape just to do everything in the park—you can bird watch, fish, hike, cycle, canoe, kayak, snorkel and, of course, play on some of the Gulf’s most natural beaches. Fishing and scalloping are also popular as the head of St. Joseph Bay is a natural marine estuary with surrounding waters teaming with redfish, speckled trout, tarpon, flounder, snapper, scallops, shrimp and blue crabs.
It should come as no surprise that the peninsula has plenty of restaurants specializing in local, fresh seafood. Just a short drive away from Cape San Blas, you can find more restaurants along with shopping and art galleries in Port St. Joe’s historic downtown or in Apalachicola’s charming coastal community. And for those who love the links, St. Joseph's Bay Country Club is nearby for an afternoon of golf.
After your trip to the Cape, you’ll take home so many memories—from bonfires on the beach to snorkeling in the clear emerald waters to horseback riding along the pristine shoreline. Start planning your trip now!
