Your guide to Cape San Blas
The little-explored white-sand beaches of Cape San Blas make up the western edge of the Florida Panhandle’s “Forgotten Coast.” But a stay at one of the vacation rentals on this tranquil finger of barrier dunes and coco palms will actually have you forgetting everything else. The pristine gulf-front getaway has some of the finest sands in the country, earning it spots on lists of the nation’s top beaches, while the destination’s bay side is defined by pine trees and fishing docks extending over shallow waters and swaying turtle grass. Tight regulations have kept development here limited, with only single-family homes and townhomes gracing the otherwise pristine coastline. Wildlife therefore abounds, and outdoor adventures such as kayaking, stand-up paddling, and cycling are all the more interesting for it.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Cape San Blas?
Like other destinations around the Panhandle, the most temperate months to visit Cape San Blas are May and October, although the biting flies also tend to hit the beaches during those months, which can be unpleasant. Summer days get hot, with temperatures regularly entering the 80s and sometimes the 90s Fahrenheit, and August is the rainiest month, with some scattered storms. From November to February the temperature drops, with averages ranging in the 50s. Whenever you go, you’re unlikely to encounter crowds, and you should definitely pack sun protection and a trusty pair of flip-flops.
