Explore the Forgotten Coast of Port St. Joe, Florida. Travel back to a time when relaxing at the beach meant just that – relaxing. To a time where days were long, unwinding was easier and high rise condominiums and theme parks were big city attractions, not beach retreats. Port St. Joe and the Forgotten Coast capture the essence of the classic, timeless coastal communities of the past, but with newer amenities. Just east of Panama City on the road to Apalachicola, this stretch of beach presents the best that a Florida vacation can offer, without the crowds.
Often referred to as “The Quiet Alternative,” the pace may be slower and the crowds fewer, but there’s still a lot to see and do. With St. Joseph’s Bay and the Gulf of Mexico at your doorstep, this area is unique in the fishing and scalloping opportunities. With all the surrounding water and beautiful white sand beaches, it is easy to understand how aquatic and nature-based activities abound. The charming ambiance is the perfect backdrop for celebrating special events on the coast and discovering great shopping and dining, too.
