Once ALL of Florida’s miles of sandy beaches looked something like Cape San Blas! Cape San Blas is one of Florida’s best-kept secrets. It is the way that Florida used to be before high rises and condos erased the beaches. There are no buildings on Cape San Blas over 4 stories tall. You can still see, walk and enjoy the beaches. Sea turtles still come to the beaches every year and lay their eggs. Dolphins swim by offshore.

America’s #1 Beach
Ranked America’s #1 Beach for 2002 by Dr. Stephen Leatherman, commonly known as Dr. Beach, Cape San Blas is home to St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, as well as a variety of secluded beach front homes and small developments. The 2,416 acre state park starts at the “tip” of the peninsula and continues for an uninhabited eight-miles of towering dunes, pristine beaches and crystal clear waters. St. Joseph Peninsula State Park was featured in the May, 2008 issue of Coastal Living Magazine with the title of “sand so white, you’ve got to wear shades”.
Cape San Blas Florida Homes…this is what makes St. Joseph’s Peninsula, also known as Cape San Blas, so special. Because of it’s pristine nature, calm water and lack of crowds, environmental experts have consistently rated this area as the #1 beach in the continental U.S. and within the top five including Hawaii! That’s from a field of over 600 beaches!
Getting to Cape San Blas
A neighbor to the famous St. George Island, Cape San Blas is a rare pristine beach hidden away, undiscovered, from the rest of the world. Immense sand dunes lord over the cape, not high-rise condominiums. The sand is fine and sugary, the water is clean and clear, and sea oats seem to dance in the moonlight, brushed by a light ocean breeze.
The Cape is one hour east of Panama City Beach, two hours southwest of Tallahassee and just 30 minutes from historic Apalachicola and St. George Island. It is a narrow peninsula approximately 20 miles long that extends into the Gulf. Bordered by spectacular sunsets over the gulf and a scallop-laden bay, it is a nature lover’s paradise.
