Cape San Blas is between Port St. Joe and Apalachicola, and, in our humble opinion, the best of the best! Cape San Blas, FL consistently ranks in the top 10 BEST BEACHES in the USA–ranking #1 in 2002!  Frommers just announced their top 10 destinations for 2010 and included in the honorees are the Florida Panhandle Beaches!  Cape San Blas is close enough to all the excitement you’ll need, yet peaceful, quiet, uncrowded and extremely family friendly! It reminds me of the Old Florida beaches when I grew up (I’m a Sarasota native!)

Often called Cape Sand Blas, Cape Sanblas, Cape San Blass, Cape San Blast, Cape Sand Blast or Cape Sandblas–it’s the St. Joseph Peninsula & locals call it simply “The Cape”. No matter what you call it–it’s a great place to be! You won’t find a stop light 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 (Barrier Dunes is all Gulf side)!   Sounds secluded, but 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!

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!
