Gulf County is an oasis of calm amid some more crowded locales. The communities of Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, Port St. Joe, St. Joe Beach, and Wewahitchka will welcome you with abundant, unspoiled natural resources. Whether fishing, kayaking, beachcombing, scalloping, swimming, hiking, or taking in an awe-inspiring sunset, the activities that appeal to visitors here are all deeply rooted in the natural assets and beauty so present and available in Gulf County.

As a peaceful, laid-back alternative to the more heavily visited Florida tourist destinations,

Gulf County is the perfect place to rest, relax, rejuvenate and unwind.  Here, quiet does

not equal boring. Be as busy or as relaxed as you’d like! There’s plenty to do: Grab a kayak and

paddle to glide along the water of the bays and inlets and catch a glimpse of the local wildlife. Put on snorkeling gear and slip into the waters at St. Joseph Bay, where you’ll find a variety of fish and other marine creatures. Then relax on the sugar sand shores as you sunbathe and take in the sound of the waves. No coastal Florida trip would be complete without casting a line, so head over to the beach of Indian Pass and hook a pompano, flounder, or redfish.
