This beach is awesome! If you want to escape the crowds...come to Cape San Blas! White sand beaches and no crowds! Best dog friendly beach and we just LOVE it! The only thing is do not come between Aug and Oct since the biting flies were SO bad! We are beach people and because of the flies in Sept we... More

Well worth $6 to enter park, beach is lovely, good nature walk and plenty of camping if you want to stop over. Had a great afternoon here.

This is a lovely small spit of land, peppered by beach cottages on stilts. Its landscape is pure Florida, unadorned. I am not a fan of bearded palmettos and tall and pines, but it is sure natural Florida. We were there in November; it was pretty much deserted but we lucked into Indian Summer.

The Cape is beautiful, we rented an ocean front townhome for a few days which would ordinarily rate a 5 but we were quite disappointed in the local businesses attitude toward us. Since we are average people we feel their is a lot of prejudice toward tourists from the local residents. We will not return to this area, we prefer... More

Be gone, Panama City, Destin, Ft, Walton Beach, and Seaside! We've finally found our perfect three-night Panhandle destination! Sugar sand and clear water, just like the "hot spots," but it's QUIET!! Quiet as in very little to do outside of water-related activities and RELAXING. Honestly, three nights were enough for us because if we're somewhere for a week, we like... More

This place is gorgeous and peaceful, and gets you away from the congestion of the traditional Florida Panhandle towns. But the flies between August and October are atrocious. We had to keep ourselves covered in lethal doses of Deet and they still ate us alive. My poor dog couldn't do the beach at all. The flies made our beach time... More

Weather was perfect, crowds were low, bonfires on the beach, our family pets on the beach, tons of pelicans fishing and dolphin galore. Who could complain? When you go to the Cape, you go to escape! So make sure you take most of your supplies with you. The local grocery store stays open till 9:30 and has most everything you... More

Took our two dogs on a two week vacation . It was a lot of fun to see two Ohio dogs frolic in the sand and surf. Then to cook fresh shrimp for dinner. A place I love coming back to. No crowds . Fires on the beach Beautiful sunsets .
