St George Island, FL



After leaving the rally, we moved to the barrier island that shelters the coastline from Apalachicola to Green Port, FL.  St George lays southwest to northeast with southeast section developed with homes and condos and the northwest end devoted to the St George Island State Park.  The park has one long road with beach access on the ocean side and bay access and a campground on the other side.  The campground has water and electric and will accommodate any size rig.

The attraction here is the quiet and beautiful beach that stretches on for mile after mile with no commercial obstructions.  Here the beach is level with packed sand for easy walking.  The water remains shallow for a long distance offshore and provides easy and safe access, especially for younger children. Apparently it is still turtle nesting season and there are a few rules aimed at not disturbing the turtles, but we did not see any while we were there.  A great place to relax and let the world go by.














The end.

St. George is one of my very favorite State Parks in Florida. Beautiful pictures. They make me long for the beach. Looks like you have it all to yourselves. Wow! How nice. Is it hot??

We have never been in that area. I love a long beautiful beach. I think the sound of the waves rolling in is so relaxing.

I like the idea of peace and quiet and not commercial establishments.

Now that is one beautiful beach, even better that there was no one on it! :c)

Looks like you had the entire area reserved for yourselves. How nice is that.

It's hard to believe you got the whole beach to yourselves. You definitely planned it right.

These are some of your best photos yet. You capture the power of the ocean and the beauty of the beach. In one shot I think I see a fish in the wave (maybe just a good imagination).

It is a must visit!

That is one place a person could simply relax and do nothing but walk on the beach and look at the surf - great pics!

A gorgeous beach.

Quiet ... yes a necessary element of a good beach. I think that's one of the things we like the beach where we are in Port A ... even during the height of spring break our stretch fronting the campground was all but empty ... and peaceful.
