St. George Island

St. George Island is the premier beach destination for those seeking natural beauty without the big crowds.

St. George Island is the #3 BEST BEACH in America according to Dr. Beach! Click here to read Dr. Beach's List.

St. George Island is a 22- mile barrier island that hosts some of Florida’s most beautiful and serene beaches. No high rises anywhere, just an unspoiled island with a laid-back attitude. Twenty miles of beach on the gulfside and miles of marsh, inlets and oyster bars on the bayside. The uncrowded beaches are perfect for sunning and shelling, the clear gulf waters invite swimming and fishing, and the pristine bay marshes feature extraordinary wildlife and sunset viewing. Rent a kayak, boat, bicycle or scooter. Accommodations, which range from quaint beach cottages to luxurious beach homes, can be reserved with any of the island’s vacation rental companies or stay at the hotel or inn.

Pet Friendly

St. George Island is one of the few beaches that allows pets, and many of the vacation homes are pet-friendly. Some of the restaurants permit you to dine outside with your pet.

St. George Island State Park

The St. George Island State Park occupies the far eastern end of St. George Island. There you will find nine miles of undeveloped shoreline, majestic dunes, a bay forest and salt marshes. St. George Island State Park has a series of hiking trails, boardwalks and observatioplatforms. In 2011, the St. George Island State Park ranked among the Top 10 Beaches of America. Birding is a popular activity on St. George Island. You might encounter one of the many migratory birds that use St. George Island as a stopover on their way south or north. We have even had rare appearances by a flamingo and a snowy owl!

Loggerhead Sea Turtles

Beginning early summer, loggerhead sea turtles come ashore to dig their nests and lay eggs along the beach. The hatchlings emerge at night and crawl to the gulf guided by light of the seaward horizon. Sometimes hatchlings are fooled by artificial light from beach homes. You can help by turning off outdoor lights and by removing your belongings from the beach each evening. Beach chairs, coolers, canopies and floats often become barriers to crawling turtles. The babies thank you!
