One of the beauties of choosing from Florida’s wide range of St. George Island vacation rentals is their closeness to the beaches. This 22-mile barrier island is famous for some of the most beautiful and uncrowded beaches on the Gulf Coast. You may not know that in May 2012, St. George Island State Park was named the number four most beautiful beach in the United States by “Dr. Beach,” Professor Stephen P. Leatherman of Florida International University.

Whether you like searching for shells, snorkeling, swimming in the crystal Gulf waters or simply soaking up the sun, you will be right at home on the beach at St. George. Quaint beach cottages, elegant condos and luxury beach homes are among the many St. George Island vacation rentals to choose from. You can even bring your pet; well-behaved dogs are welcome in many vacation homes as well as on the beaches.

The serene, white sand beaches and dunes cover more than nine miles across the island, providing the prefect location for St. George Island State Park. Take some time out to enjoy boating, canoeing or snorkeling off the white sands. You can catch flounder, redfish, sea trout, Spanish mackerel, pompano and whiting from the bay.

St. George Island is a fun vacation spot for all the family. Not many beaches offer the equivalent opportunity for shelling. There’s nothing more calming than an early morning beach walk; being gently warmed by the dawn sun as it crests the ocean. This is a great time to go shell hunting, and at this time of day you will also have a chance to catch a glimpse of the Gulf Coast’s dolphins and sea turtles. Another perfect time for shelling is after a sea storm; then you are bound to find an array of whole shells, especially in the State Park.

If your day on the beach is stirring your appetite, you won’t have to go far for a good meal. You can meet the locals, sample the fresh flavor of Florida’s fish and shell food and wash it down with a cool, draft beer at a number of beach-front eateries including Eddy Teach’s Raw Bar with its fresh oysters and large selection of imported draft beer or the Blue Parrot ocean Front Café, renowned for its large deck and tiki bar and for serving the largest po-boy around.

St. George Island Visitor’s Center and Lighthouse Museum

A favorite attraction for St. George Island visitors is the Lighthouse Museum. The lighthouse was originally built in 1852 on what is now known as Little St. George Island. Eventually, due to the pounding waves and sand erosion, the lighthouse collapsed into the Gulf of Mexico in October 2005. The lighthouse was rebuilt thanks to the efforts of the St. George Lighthouse Association. Many volunteers helped to clean the mortar from thousands of the original bricks and the original blueprints were obtained from the National Archives in Washington, D.C. The lighthouse was reconstructed on St, George Island and reopened to the public in December 2008. You will enjoy exploring this historic building and climbing the 92 stairs to reach the top of the light.
