Day-trip to St. Vincent Island

"The Pass" is celebrated most for its secluded beaches, excellent
fishing, lagoon oysters, and an incredible variety of wildlife.

Indian Pass is an un-crowded beach haven, with great fishing, beautiful beaches, and an abundance of natural wildlife. An eclectic array of beach homes line the edge of miles of secluded, pet-friendly beaches. The awardwinning Turtle Beach Inn is tucked away amongst a halo of pines, offering a little bit of quiet for those who need it. Beach driving is allowed, with a permit, and it's not unusual to see families fishing, crabbing, grilling or stacking wood for an evening bonfire.

"The Pass" is celebrated most for fishing, lagoon oysters, and an incredible variety of wildlife. Apalachicola Bay flows into the Gulf at the tip of Indian Pass Peninsula creating a conflux of fresh and salt water, making it one of the most fertile estuarine areas in the world.

Fresh fish for dinner from Indian Pass!
Just across the tip of the peninsula lie the primitive shores of St. Vincent Island, a national wildlife refuge, encompassing over twelve thousand acres of protected habitat. Stop by the campground under the oaks to find out about local eco-excursions to St. Vincent Wildlife Refuge as well as charter fishing, kayak and bike rentals.

Need to bond with the great outdoors? Indian Pass Campground offers a unique camping experience in a natural setting with waterfront cabins, RV sites and primitive campsites surrounding Indian Lagoon. In the midst of a deeply fertile area full of unspoiled beaches and rich estuaries, there are no high-rises, just the natural terrain full of wildlife.

Looking for a little more fun? The Indian Pass Raw Bar is just the place. Lagoon oysters are served raw, steamed and baked. Stop in, grab a cold one from the cooler, enjoy great food, make new friends and listen to live music on the porch.
