St. George Island

Gulf side and bay side

St. George's Island is a 28-mile long barrier island off of Florida's panhandle. It is mainly sand dunes with vegetation of pines, bushes and grasses. It reminds us of Cape Cod. On the island you have the state park section on the east end, vacation homes/condos and a small town in the center and a gated community on the west end. We really enjoy this state park! It is very laid back.
