Beach in Florida

This Little-Known Florida Beach Is The Perfect Coastal Retreat

By Blake Guthrie


There are many beautiful beach getaway spots in the Florida Panhandle, but if you're looking for a beach that's great for avoiding crowds, head to Cape San Blas in Gulf County.
Cape San Blas sits on a narrow 20-mile-long peninsula called St. Joseph Peninsula, with St. Joseph Bay on one side, the Gulf of Mexico on the other.
Visitors can go horseback riding on the beach, scalloping in the bay, hiking through the wilderness, and so much more than just relaxing on the beach and swimming in the surf.
Cape San Blas has vacation rental homes and condominiums on the beach side and the bay side of the peninsula. The state park boasts three hiking trails covering 6 miles.
