St. George Island is roughly a 6 to 7 hour drive from Savannah, Atlanta, Birmingham and New Orleans. The drive is worth it for once here you feel far away. You know the feeling - you switch to island time. There is a long low bridge over the Sound which takes you onto St. George Island, which is a long... More

For those that want something more laid back, less stuffy and commercial as 30A this is the spot! Not a lot of newish rentals but there are some and plenty right on the beach. Not many restaurant choices but apalachicola is a beautiful 20 minute drive from SGI and a few amazing restaurants there. Highly recommend SGI vacation properties to... More

I highly recommend this house! The location made it so peaceful, so tranquil! I have been two weekends and will go again once it is open another weekend. Sitting on the dock, watching the water, listening to the birds, it is the best place to be to enjoy, clear your head and put everything into perspective. The yard is great... More

I have been visiting SGI, FL for 30 years and own a home twenty minutes away. These comments about tourists being more important than sea turtles, no malls, boring, no high rises....wow....cannot believe people. SGI is beautiful, very natural and a great place to relax. Please STAY WHERE EVER YOU ARE FROM if that is your though process! Turtles are... More

Just reading over some of these other reviews and I was astonished! Boring? Nothing to do? Needs shopping malls? Whining about removing their stuff from the beaches? Where did these people come from? (Maybe they should take their money and go back!). We NEED places in the world - in America especially, that don't look like every other place. This... More

My wife won't even think about going back. No quaint little shops to speak of. No really decent restaurants. Nothing there except sand dunes. We like quiet and secluded but this is going to far. We really liked Hwy 30A area between Panama City and Destin. Plenty of great places to eat and things to do there besides sit on... More

Be aware that SGI,FL now has a"leave nothing behind"policy.No more leaving chairs,etc.on the beach. It seems the powers have decided turtles are more important than the tourists that actually spend money that supports the island. I loved not hauling my chairs to the beach everyday, but no more! Turtles are more important then those of us who spend so much... More

My husband and I have stayed for 4 days in April 2014 and 4 days in March 2015. Our stay was very relaxing and enjoyed the oceans and the bay. The restaurants in the area were great. We went two times to Appalachacola and went through various historic locations. The facilities at 949 E Pine @ 2 Palms Retreat location... More

Went here for spring break it is a very nice place the homes here are beautiful. However the homes are spaced extremely far apart for some reason not utilizing valuable space. Their are no high rises, shopping malls, and very few restaunts. Definitely in need of some serious improvements but still a nice place to visit for a day.
