A string of soft white sand beaches, protecting an aquatic preserve with locally-owned stores and shops. ‘Irresistible’ pretty much sums it up.’
Cape San Blas is located on St. Joseph Peninsula, a narrow stretch of land extending out from Port St. Joe and curving around St. Joseph Bay. The “Cape,” as most call it, was named the best beach in America (2002) by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman (a.k.a. Dr. Beach). Better still, the St. Joseph Bay Aquatic Preserve remains one of the least populated coastal areas in the state where residents and visitors have an excellent opportunity to experience nature.
Nearly equal parts pristine beaches, a bay with abundant sea life and a laid-back lifestyle, Cape San Blas is truly a vacation paradise. The Cape is easily accessible from Port St. Joe, about a 20-minute drive. Families who vacation on the Cape choose this spot for its beauty and seclusion. St. Joseph Bay is only body of water in the eastern Gulf of Mexico not influenced by the inflow of fresh water hosting one of the richest ecosystems along the Florida coast.
Popular activities include fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, biking and hiking. Loggerhead Trail is a 8.7-mile paved recreational pathway that runs the length of the Cape. Along the way, you’ll find local stores stocked with beach supplies and groceries, and unique restaurants with ice-cold oysters or hot pizza.
Mother Nature divided St. Joseph Peninsula State Park into multiple islands when Hurricane Michael made landfall in 2018. The Park will reopen to the public in 2019.
Sincere Thanks to our growing family of loyal repeat vacationing guests. We're very humbled that so many of you personally tell us you won't vacation on the Cape unless you can stay with Teresa's Beach Homes.
