Cape San Blas is located directly West of Port St. Joe with St. Joe Bay separating the two. It sports  three State Parks: Salinas Park, Rish State Park which caters to young handicapped people and St. Joe Park that is located at the end of Cape San Blas peninsula; St. Joe Park is a 2,000 acre park that was rated the #1 beach but also has wonderful hiking and bike trails and a marina for boat launching. St. Joe Bay is an area that you shouldn't miss. It is fun to take a boat out onto the bay where the fishing and scalloping is great. If you like to snorkel the scalloping is fantastic during scalloping season in July and August.

There is a historical lighthouse on the Cape that is very interesting and the shelling in that area is wonderful. Be sure to check out the old plantation homes that are being restored and a a gift shop for interesting souveniers. This sunset photo was taken from the top of the lighthouse.




The area has numerous fine restaurants ranging from Toucans in Mexico Beach (All you can eat shrimps every Thursday), to the Sunset Grill, Peppers and Dockside Cafe in Port St. Joe.  On the way to Apalachicola (20 miles) is the incomparable Indian Pass Raw bar that has been written up in national magazines. In Apalachicola the Gibson Inn is a standout, along with Papa Joe's, The Owl and Boss for seafood lovers. Tamara's with Tapas every Wednesday night is a special treat.  Apalachicola also has some quaint shops that are fun to browse in.

The St. Joe Country Club is close by with an upscale golf course just waiting for you.

There are no bars or motels on the Cape and traffic is limited to people renting homes, state park visitors and homeowners. Cape San Blas is sparsely developed with plenty of open areas for meandering. If you need a restful break, this is the place!
