Trip Report A short report on Cape San Blas Florida

Jump to last reply

We just returned from our first snowbird experience. We spent it on the Forgotten Coast at Cape San Blas in Florida. Cape San Blas is a peninsula about 18miles long with the very tip being a state park that has a beautiful beach, a few cottages and RV/camper parking. The rest of the peninsula has stilt houses, one Inn, two convenience stores, one hamburger/ice cream store, a few Real Estate Companies, a couple condo's but no high-rises. Cape San Blas is 14 miles away from Port St. Joe, the nearest small town with a grocery store. It is 30 miles from Apalachicola, a quaint town on the banks of the Apalachicola River that has two grocery stores. We loved this place and will return next January, temps in Jan & Feb range from the 50's to the low 70's. We rented VRBO and were steps from the water with ocean views from every room of the house.

Apalachicola is known for it's oysters and I'm here to tell you they are great! They are sweet and salty and yummy! The following is a list of our favorite restaurants in the area.

1. Indian Pass Raw Bar in Indian Pass
(a converted gas station where you get you own beer and have a seat)

2. Boss Oyster in Apalachicola (they have their own fishing boats)

3. TouCans in Mexico Beach (right ON the beach)

4. Eddy Teaches on St George Island ( a VERY casual oyster and beer bar that sells a FEW other items. The oysters are terrific! steamed and raw.

5. Dockside Cafe in Port St Joe. Located on the marina with daily specials

The beaches are NOT crowded summer or winter, the sand is white and soft, the people are laid back, and if you want peace and rest with not much to do except to enjoy walking the beach, boating, fishing and golf, this is for you.
