Travel Guide – Cape San Blas

Cape San Blas has a character of its own with miles of shell-strewn, pet-friendly shorelines and a vast array of eco-excursions.

Cape San Blas is a 17-mile long barrier peninsula, curving around St. Joseph Bay offering playful surf and white sand beaches on the Gulf side and smooth, shallow water on the Bay side.  The Cape is known for its clear, sometimes blue, sometimes green water and low, gentle surf.  Families who vacation on the Cape choose this spot for both its beauty and its seclusion.  Drag a chair to the beach with a book, throw a line to the surf, or comb the shore for treasures.  Scattered with shells, the sand in this quiet paradise is super soft and sparkling white.

Tired or relaxing?  Peddle, walk or jog along Loggerhead Run Bike Trail for a different view.  Browse through eclectic beach stores, cool off with some ice cream or grab a few pounds of bay shrimp to steam while you watch the sun go down.

Looking for something more adventurous?  Local outfitters will get you rigged.  Horseback riding is available on the beach and guided tours are offered daily.  Canoe, kayak and sailboat rentals are available as well as diving, snorkeling and eco-excursions.  Take the time to explore the Bay.  Wade through grassy flats, kayak with your kids and glide above two feet of water for miles.  The clear, shallow water offers hours of safe play and discovery for little ones as well as adults.  Sand dollars, starfish, scallops and schools of colorful fish are fun to find-ten times more fun with a snorkel and mask!
