St. George Island Florida is the Best Beach

St. George Island is one of the last inhabited, yet unspoiled, islands of Florida.

The east end of the island is occupied by Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park, the 1,926-Acre Park features picnic areas with bathhouses, boardwalks, observation decks, nature trails and camping facilities.

In 2011, the St. George Island’s State Park beaches were ranked among the Top 10 in the country by "Dr. Beach"! The rest of the island features low density, high nature-friendly development in a relaxed coastal environment.

Most recently noted for its award-winning beaches and historic lighthouse, St. George Island is Franklin County’s premier beach destination for those seeking natural beauty without the big crowds.

While you’re on the island, visit the historic St. George Island Lighthouse and Museum, rent a kayak and paddle the quiet bay inlets, pitch a tent at the St. George Island State Park campground, grab a fishing pole and try your luck from the shore, pier or boat or take a hike along coastal wooded trails.

You could also just do nothing and relax in the surf and soak up the salt...and it's pet-friendly!
