St. George Island, Florida, is home to the Gulf Beaches, also known as the Old Subdivision. Around the 1960s, this area became the first on the island to be mapped for construction, and it’s now home to 11 blocks of a bustling downtown area and homes along the Gulf of Mexico and Apalachicola Bay. The Gulf Beaches neighborhood is further defined by its four miles of residential property, which is divided into two sectors: East Gulf Beaches and West Gulf Beaches.
In close proximity to the center of the island and its restaurants, bars, and shopping district, the East Gulf Beaches community offers affordable locations in high-quality homes. It’s a favorite of beachgoers for its pristine, white-sand beaches, scenic shoreline, and opportunities for fishing, catching breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, and watching dolphins play in the waves. And by nightfall, visitors can marvel at the blanket of stars reflecting off the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Apalachicola Bay.
East Gulf Beaches is also the preferred destination of those seeking recreation, as it features a 6.3-mile bike path and hiking trails. What’s more, it’s located near the Cape St. George Lighthouse and Museum, where visitors climb to the top to see stunning panoramic views of the Gulf Coast of Florida. When not enjoying the excellent weather outdoors, check out the downtown area, where you can find fine seafood, refreshing ice cream, lively bars, local art, and plenty of shopping.
West Gulf Beaches offers access to miles of white sand beaches, as well as access to the island’s restaurants and shops. Take the 6.3 mile bike path for some exercise, or walk the beaches and keep your eyes peeled for native wildlife, like sea turtles. If you’re in the mood for a short trip, check out St. George Island State Park for hiking and relaxation.
