Rented a house here with adult family. The beach was lovely, but we were warned to take all our beach things in at night. However, we noticed that many people left their canopies up overnight. We loved the surf and enjoyed the Trading Post and...More
Cape San Blas is a trip back to Old Florida at it’s finest. There are only a few restaurants, souvenir shops on the Cape itself, and to get groceries you must go into Port Saint Joe. When you go, make sure you have everything you...More
Despite the continued building of houses, this was still a great pace t spend a week at the beech. The gulf and bay sides of the cape offer a great deal of aquatic wildlife encounters with people seeing rays, turtles, dolphins, share, crabs, fish, etc....More
Lots of damage but not near as bad as Mexico Beach. The government was already there putting roads back together and working on water lines. Places that had issues with erosion will need some assistance but for the most part, the higher grounds faired very...More
Old school Florida. 98% residential. The state park is nice natural beaches and bay. Restaurants are hit or miss. The population is growing and they do not know how to deal with it. We went one night to Triple Tail and they ran out of...More
Cape San Blas is a gem located in the Panhandle. Pristine beautiful white beaches with high sand dunes and sea oats on the Gulf side, and activities galore in the St. Joseph Bay. In the surrounding area you have several restaurants located in Port St....More
I was amazed at the change to the Cape since my last visit in 2012. The lighthouse has been moved to Port St. Joe and the island has become a sub-division. Not much to do and much harder to find a place to park and...More

I am 15 year repeat Cape San Blas vacationer. The beach will undergo MAJOR restoration starting Aug 1 and a projected 45 days out. Super large dump trucks will be dumping huge amounts of sand on the West Cape side beach FROM the STUMP HOLE (Rock Pile @ lower left elbow of Cape and northward to RISH PARK (about half way up). It is an amazing site to see, but they will block off sections of the beach starting at the STUMP HOLE as they move north.
My husband and I are thinking about staying in Port Joe/Cape San Blas in September. We would like to bring our 2 dogs with us. After checking out VRBO, it seems that there are no 1 bedroom rentals that are pet friendly. Once you get to the 2 bedroom+ rentals, the prices really start to creep up. Does anyone know of a 1 bedroom rental that is right on the beach and is also pet friendly?

Thanks todday and Wendy J. I was able to find a rental through the link todday listed. We are very excited about this trip with the dogs - I can't wait to see their reaction to the beach for the first time!! :)

How remote is Cape San Blas? How far is the drive to areas with restaurants? We have stayed along 30 A and enjoyed the little seaside shopping towns. Is there anything like that in the area?

Both Apalachicola and St. Joe are close by offering dining and shopping- 20 minutes either way. There are a few resturants in the area of Cape San Blas- the Indian Pass Raw Bar being the most popular but it gets very busy in the summertime. Personally I like the food options in St. Joe and the shopping in Apalachicola- though The Owl in Apalachicola has some mighty fine dining. This area is much more natural and not fu-fu like 30A. I adore 30A- it's an awesome place. San Blas and its...More

Recommendations for a condo/house for a picky person (5 Replies)
So, I'm a little spoilt in my past Florida beach vacations and I'm looking for my next great beach haunt. I have fond memories of a time we stayed somewhere on the beach near St. Augustine and thought I'd see if there's something here that could work. Here are my requirements, in no particular order other than "I want it all!": * Condo/House that is truly beach front - as in, nice swooshing and awesome view of the waves and wildlife (seagulls, pelicans, dolphins) from a decent sized...More

Really nicely 3 BR condos don't allow dogs. Probably why they are nice! That is a shame though as the beach is so dog friendly. Most condos are 2 BR but try Coral Reef Club or Hibiscus, both of which have oceanfront condos with 3 BRs. Good luck!
