Indian Pass

The perfect place to get back to nature.

Just eight miles from Port St. Joe, Indian Pass feels like a world away. To vacation here is to experience Old Florida. An eclectic array of beach homes line the miles of wide, pet-friendly beaches. Beach driving is allowed with a permit, and it’s not unusual to see families fishing, crabbing, grilling or sitting around an evening bonfire. This is also a great place for a relaxing horseback ride along the beach.

At land’s end you’ve reached Indian Pass Campground, located directly on Indian Pass and Apalachicola Bay. Across the water you’ll see St. Vincent Island, a national wildlife refuge, accessible only by boat. A daily ferry trip will take you and your bike across the short passage, or private charters will be glad to plan an excursion into Big Bayou.

Apalachicola oysters may be world famous but Indian Pass Lagoon Oysters are some of the best you’ll ever taste. The Gulf around Indian Pass is from a different time¾flavorful, rustic and raw in its beauty. Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder and Pompano are an easy catch for the beach fisherman.
