If you want peace and quiet, beautiful beaches or quiet bay waters, Cape San Blas is perfect for you. The peninsula reaches out into the ocean and shelters the water of St. Joe Bay. Kayaking, snorkeling, scalloping. Hiking or exploring at the state park at the tip of the cape. It's hard to believe this peek into "old Florida" is... More

25 year ago this area was isolated, but after several recent storms, the are a is building up with lots of million dollar homes. However, some of the original old Florida "feel" still remains. Lots of families with small children. Great place to go if you want to get away from the internet and cell phone service!

Nice to find a beach town free of giant condos, souvenir shops, and crowds. Reminds me of my youth going to Florida with my family and staying in a motel of about 20 rooms instead of 200. Nice quaint beach houses rather close together but still nice. One two lane road in and out no traffic lights. Paved bike path... More

Amazing sand and water. We have been going here for our family vacation for 9 years. A lot more people now than when we started to visit. Pet friendly and very safe.

We just got back a few days ago and I cannot say enough about our time in Cape San Blas. There were two families on this trip which included three teenagers and a preteen and in spite of the lack of things to "do" here they were never bored. We were all very content walking out to the sand every... More

This gem of a cape is just waiting for you to visit! This is the 2nd time we've visited, once in December 2010 and July 2015. We've barely noticed a change. It's a wonderful unspoiled place to enjoy and reflect on the beauty and treasure of nature at its best. Breathtaking sunrises, colorful sunsets, inviting habitats with an incredible array... More

While I agree with many that this is a very beautiful area the behavior of many visitors is outrageous. We were just there in July for 4 nights. Every night people set off huge fireworks on the beach until past midnight, even though it is completely illegal in Florida. It was very disturbing. There are lots of dogs peeing on... More

Both days we were on the cape, the weather beautiful but the ocean very rough. Decided to find snorkeling area on bay side and it was great! Lots of sand dollars and small fish. Did not have time to go to end of the peninsula but heard if was a beautiful area .

We love the gulf and have been going for 30+ years each summer as a family. This was our first time we went to Cape San Blas and the entire family said it was their favorite trip. Not a lot of crowds and busy life that Destin, Panama City and other places along the Gulf bring....just good relax time on... More
