Cape San Blas Area Guide

Find the Top Activities and Recommendations on Florida's Forgotten Coast

For many years now, our little slice of Florida’s Panhandle has been referred to as “The Forgotten Coast”. This loosely refers to the Gulf of Mexico coastline stretching from Apalachicola, a few miles to our east, to Mexico Beach, a similar distance to the west. Gulf County, then, is more or less in the center of this appropriately named seaside expanse.


Here, there are expanses of sugar-white sand beaches which have often been ranked among the best in the United States. Visitors enoy sunbathing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking on the Saint Joseph Bay aquatic preserve, hiking, bird-watching, scalloping in Saint Joseph Bay, riding horses on the beach, and fishing for red snapper, grouper, flounder, mahi-mahi, cobia, and scamp are among the many water oriented activities that our area offers.


You can really get away from it all on “The Cape." Leave your worries behind and do things that you’re not able to do elsewhere.
