With 20 miles of sugar-white beaches nestled between the shimmering waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the pristine St. Joseph Bay, Cape San Blas, FL is one of the last remaining undiscovered beach sanctuaries along the beautiful Florida  Panhandle.

Cape San Blas, FL  is a narrow strip of land jutting out into the Gulf  & separating the Gulf of Mexico & St. Joseph Bay. The beach along Cape San Blas was voted No. 1 in the United States by Dr. Beach (Stephen Leatherman) in 2002 (see  Dr. Beaches "America's Best Beach"). The beautifully pristine sand, clean water and beach, whispering sea oats and majestic sand dunes were much of the reason behind the award of "2002 Best Beach in America."   The white sand beaches of Cape San Blas, Florida (St. Joseph Peninsula) are among the most beautiful beaches in America.

Cape San Blas, FL offers a quiet beach setting for families and friends in an "Old Florida" atmosphere.  Come to Cape San Blas and capture the essence of yesterday with the amenities of today!

Excellent snorkeling awaits at St. Joseph Bay which offers the alternative lure of fine fishing, crabbing, and scalloping. You can  rent ocean kayaks at Scallop Cove or Happy Ours (both on Cape San Blas) and explore the grass flats of the Bay, go scalloping or just enjoy the beautiful views!. You can paddle for miles in less than 2 feet of water. You may find bay scallops, sting ray, dolphin, fiddler crabs, horseshoe crabs, star fish or octopi, among other things.

St. Joseph Peninsula--also know as Cape San Blas, FL!At the end of the Cape, right next door to Barrier Dunes, is the incredible St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. St. Joseph Peninsula State Park has miles of white sand beaches, striking dune formations, a forested interior and a favorable climate for year-round outdoor recreation. The 2,516-acre park is bounded on three sides by the waters of St. Joe Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.   The park's sandpipe scrub, pine flatwoods and dunes provide a refuge for more than 200 species of birds, including bald eagles, ospreys and endangered peregrine falcons. In autumn, migrating monarch butterflies and hawks stop here on their annual flight to Mexico. It is  filled with deer, bobcats, raccoon, butterflies, and birds of every description.

The northern end of St. Joseph State Park is a designated wilderness preserve. From the end of the road to the tip of the peninsula are 7 1/2 miles of primitive shoreline  with trails and limited boat Chance are you won't run into another soul; so if you have the urge to skinny dip --- this is your spot. Read more about the wilderness preserve.
