Discover Florida’s “Forgotten Coast” — and its 28 miles of white-sand beaches.
Consistently rated one of the top beaches in the country, St. George Island feels divinely serene. Located just off the coast of northern Florida, bordered by the Gulf of Mexico and Apalachicola Bay, it’s home to family-friendly activities in unspoiled nature — including swimming, fishing, biking, birding and kayaking — paired with stunning sunsets, fresh seafood, live music venues and first-class shopping experiences. The island’s strict low-density zoning codes create a sense of sweet solitude. A vacation here means renting a little beach cottage and enjoying 28 miles of natural shoreline.
