A recent visit (Feb. 2019) revealed a resilient community still struggling to come back from a devastating storm. Debris and fallen trees still clog the marshes and roadsides and crews are working nonstop to repair the roads. It's sad to see how many houses were...More

Just beautiful. Will not be disappointed when you visit. Must visit and walk around. Shelling was perfect. Seeing it after Hurricane Michael was heartbreaking but the people here are so kind and hard working.

Small town feel, friendly people, dog friendly and no touristy stuff. Still recovering from Hurricane Michael, but a wonderful little town.

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

Everything is back to normal. Still lots of repairs going on, but the stores are back, the debris removed, and the roads are passable. You will have a great experience.
