The forgotten Florida coast … maybe the perfect utopia? Wander the deserted beaches with squeaky sugar white sand, discover your own shells, climb a 1850’s lighthouse, enjoy real Florida seafood, fresh as it can be, right off the boat, ride your bike the length of the island, along a separate bike path…. wow, just wow…..
Gulf State Park, located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, is a refreshing break from the high rise beachfront condominium parade. Beachfront in the park features dunes and wide white sandy beaches that rival any beaches we’ve seen anywhere. Plus there’s a great state park campground with full hookups, miles of biking and hiking trails, swimming in both the pool or lake, tennis courts – overall a first class state park!
