Though the house is located on the bay, the beach is only a 3 block walk or drive. The white beach sand is perfect for building sandcastles or taking a long stroll, and the gentle waves are ideal for beach boarding, crabbing, fishing, and swimming.
Our 28 mile island also offers a bike path which runs the length of the island. Bicycles & kayaks are available from multiple vendors. From a kayak, you can get up close with dolphins, bald eagles and ospreys, or view a stunning sunset from the water.
The center of the island hosts Lighthouse Park with a children's playground, pavillions, basketball court, a lighthouse museum & gift shop, and of course the lighthouse with a stunning view from the top. The State Park occupies the eastern end of the island and offers camping, kayaking, hiking, bird watching, and a gorgeous stretch of white sand beach.
Another new museum is located just across the bridge to the mainland. The Apalachicola National Estuary Research Reserve visitor center is a fascinating facility for the entire family. With multiple aquariums of local fish, theatre, and exhibits, it's well worth the trip.
The island is an uncrowded, quiet, get-away and has become a second home to an ever growing population of snowbirds. Winter visitors will find that they are enthusiastically welcomed into the St. George community. The churches, businesses, and community organizations are always glad to make your acquaintance and welcome your support.
Fresh seafood is always available on the island (or catch your own!), and there's always a bait and tackle store open.
