Cape San Blas

A string of soft white sand pristine 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) for its pristine beaches. 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.

The gem of Cape San Blas is T.H. Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park.  The park is open for day passes only at this time.

 Island-Like Vibe
“Gorgeous place and very low key. With  access to both the gulf beach and the bay, you feel like you’re on an island.”
