Cape San Blas Area Guide

Find the Top Beaches on Florida's Forgotten Coast

The Forgotten Coast’s best beaches hide well away from crowds and traffic on two thin peninsulas of sand called Cape San Blas and Indian Pass. Finding both requires a trip off the beaten path, also known as the St. Joseph Peninsula. Take Highway 98 and continue onto a twisting roadway (C-30A) through forests of skyscraping pines and magnolias, and an occasional view of the St. Joseph Bay.

Take a Trip of off the Beaten Path

Although Cape San Blas and Indian Pass are considered “undeveloped” by most Florida standards, many new communities have been recently developed on the peninsulas. Most of these communities consist of two- and three-story homes, along with a few townhomes and condominiums - don’t expect to see any “Towering Condos” that block out the sun in this area. A state park and 1,650-acre wilderness area occupy the reclusive far end of the Cape, beachcombing among the towering dunes, fishing, hunting for scallops, and wildlife spotting are favorite pastimes.
