Cape San Blas offers beautiful beaches, a great state park, nearby historical points of interest, and good food and specialty shops if you are willing to drive 20 miles, which we didn't mind because we love the scenery. Between Port St. Joe and Apalachicola, Cape San Blas is just the right place for people who don't like a lot of... More

If you want uncrowded,beautiful white beaches this is for you. It's also dog friendly although that can be taken advantage of.There is a leash law but some ignore it.Also you are suppose to clean up after your dog but we saw some bury it. There's really only one restaurant-Cone Heads which serves an excellent blue burger besides other casual dishes.... More

We took a whole group of people, a mixture of adults, grandparents and kids, and stayed on the Cape for the 4th of July week 2014. The beach was slightly busy, but nothing like some of the major panhandle beaches. There was still plenty of room to stretch your legs. We rented the Greenhouse (http://www.vrbo.com/172852) and the beach was literally... More

I cannot say enough good things about Cape San Blas. The beach is so beautiful and is dog friendly. We were there the end of Dec 2014 and beginning of Jan 2015 and the weather was beautiful. This is a quiet place and the perfect place to spend time with your family. We were there with our two children and... More

I have lived on the Atlantic and know great beaches. This one is a winner. Pet friendly and a local commitment to clean, safe beaches. I especially appreciate the protection for sea turtles and nesting birds.

My mother and I stayed on Cape San Blas for a week over 4th of July weekend and it was very peaceful. There were dogs everywhere which was wonderful for us dog lovers, there wasn't a lot of shelling to be done but each beach is different. Being able to have a fire on the beach was a wonderful experience... More

This is what a beach area should be. No big attractions, NOT a "spring break" place, just a nice, clean, white sand family area to enjoy the Gulf.

This is a gorgeous beach in a forgotten corner of Florida. I almost don’t want to write this review, because it is so undiscovered it is not crowded like many panhandle beaches. We originally selected Cape San Blas, because it is one of the few dog friendly beaches in the Florida Panhandle. Fortunately, folks want to keep a beach were... More

Miles of beautiful sea shell strewn beautiful white sandy beeches, calm waters, lovely people, lovely food.. Just so many things to live about this place. ..Would recommend to spend at least a couple of days here. Camp out, go for a stroll in the beach in the night, hire a bike and ride all the way to edge of the... More

I hesitate to rave too much about this place because part of what I love is how uncrowded it is. If you are looking for sugar white beaches, Gulf of Mexico sunsets, fishing, relaxing and recharging, this is the place. If you are looking for resorts, bars, clubs and partying, this is probably not the place for you. Cape San... More
