After recently visiting Port Saint Joe myself, I’m more convinced than ever that you should visit it if you’re in Florida. It’s a great place to go alone, as a couple, or with a family and I can’t sing its praises enough.
So today we’re going to be talking about some of the things Port Saint Joe has to offer, and why you should add this small town to your destination list.
It’s A Great Location
Port Saint Joe lies in Gulf County, Florida. More specifically, it’s on the coast of St Joseph’s Bay.
And much like Cape San Blas, which is located near the port, Port Saint Joe is along the Emerald Coastline. Its proximity to Cape San Blas is a real bonus because you could potentially visit both places in the same vacation!
It Features Gorgeous Beaches -
You have several options for beaches nearby the port, each one just as stunning as the last with perfect white sand that’s great for lounging on, building sandcastles with, and simply looking at!
You could hit up “The Beaches”, which is the name given to the entire area that encompasses these beaches, and head to either St Joe Beach or Mexico Beach since they’re the two most popular ones.
And across the water from St Joe Beach is a small island that you can reach by boat, it has a great beach and clear waters for you to enjoy if you make the small journey by water.
There Are Lots of Other Activities -
As far as activities go, you could enjoy some water related fun such as snorkeling and fishing. Or for those that prefer to stay on land, there are even activities aside from lounging on the beach such as looking at some of the port’s rich history.
You could also peruse some of their shops, even if you don’t have a lot of money to spend. They have a wide array of antique shops, gift shops, and charming bistros for when you need a quick snack.
And The Food Is Perfection -
As you may have guessed, there is lots of seafood available at Port Saint Joe because of its proximity to the water. But the cuisine is even better than you might imagine, and it’s honestly some of the best seafood in the game!
There Are So Many More Reasons…
The list of reasons why you should visit this port doesn’t stop here, but this is where I’ll wrap up the article. Just know that I highly suggest visiting Port Saint Joe if you’re in the area, or in Florida at all for that matter.
The residents of this town often say that they are “a small town with a big heart” and you will feel that charming vibe when you’re staying there. Ten out of ten, recommend!
