About Cape San Blas, Florida

The Forgotten Coast
Cape San Blas Vacation Rentals view from beach of rainbow over water

Consistently ranked in the top 10 Best USA Beaches, Cape San Blas, The “Forgotten Coast” of Florida is in the Northwest Florida Panhandle, located just down the road from Destin, between Panama City & Apalachicola. It is bounded on the West by Mexico beach, St. Joe Beach & Port St. Joe. On the East, you come to Simmons Bayou, Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, Apalachicola, St. George Island, Eastpoint, Carrabelle, Ochlockonee Bay & Panacea.

Called “The Cape” by locals, the St. Joseph Peninsula is a great place to be! You won’t find a stoplight or a highrise condo here, just miles of uncrowded, unspoiled, dog-friendly, pristine, white-sand beaches with beautiful St. Joe Bay on one side and The Gulf of Mexico on the other side of the Cape. Our Barrier Dunes rentals are all Gulf side!

Cape San Blas is close to Port St. Joe (15 min) and Apalachicola (25 min) if you are in need of additional action during your vacation!  Panama City is just an hour if you need anything wild!

If you are looking for a warm & friendly beach community that takes pride in a relaxing atmosphere and limited development, this is the place for you. With 20 miles of soft white beaches & spectacular sand dunes 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–definitely one of the last uncrowded ones!
