Enjoy the serenity and quiet of what the local residents call “the
Beaches.” Sugar white sand beaches, facing
west for the most striking sunsets, offer crystal clear waters, all located just
three miles west of
Port St. Joe.
Protected by St. Joseph Bay Peninsula, which creates a barrier island, the beaches has very little undertow, making it one of the safest beaches in Florida. The emphasis here is family. The anglers (fishermen) find a mecca of ideal angling, mama is pleased, the children are safe on the calm beaches and everyone goes home with a famous Florida tan. St. Joe Beach offers seclusion and easy access to the all the conveniences: airport, shops, mall, etc.
Among the many local opportunities: surf-fishing, crabbing, strolling along the water’s edge, picking up shells while enjoying the clear blue water and the seagulls’ cries while the sandpipers weave in and out along the shore.
There are no crowds here, no hordes of tourists, no throngs of people jostling for a place on the beach. In addition to the rolling waves, visitors may quietly observe a sea turtle laying its eggs at moonlight or hatchlings erupting from the sand to begin life’s journey. Surf, sand and sun all combine to lead you into one of the most beautiful beaches along the Florida Coast. You will truly “discover Old Florida”, as you enjoy mother nature at it's best!
