Why Kids Love It
Kids love to play in the private pool. The beach is great for building sandcastles, collecting seashell treasures and chasing sand crabs.
Cape San Blas is like going back in time; Old Florida at its best. The Seagrass community is quiet and family friendly; a special, sought after, private vacation community. It offers a club house, community pool and the beautiful Cape San Blas beach which was ranked #1 beach by Dr. Beach in 2002. The Cape continues to be considered one of the top five beaches in America. There are no tall condos or hotels anywhere nearby; just simply miles of pristine beaches and large dunes!
As you stroll along the quiet beach, you can collect a variety of seashells or just enjoy watching the dolphins swim by or eagles and osprey scouting for prey. Of course, swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, kayaking or fishing in the surf are also a favorite. Explore St. Joseph Peninsula State Park just a few minutes away with it nature trails, huge natural dunes, fishing, and abundance of birds.
You may want to rent bikes and golf carts to cruise on the many miles of bike paths or kayaks and motor boats to explore the bay, gulf, many waterways or fresh water lakes. Or you may prefer sunset horseback riding on the beach as it can also be conveniently arranged.
