If you can’t imagine leaving your four-legged friends behind when you go on vacation, then you’ve found the right place! St. George Island is one of the rare beaches in Florida that welcomes pets. This sparsely-populated paradise offers wonderful opportunities for you and your furry family members to play in the sand, splash in the waves, and just spend a day hanging out by the water.
After all, your beach vacation shouldn’t make your pet say, “It’s a dog’s life!”
Our gorgeous beaches have plenty of public access and are easy to reach whether you are staying in a beachfront house or not. The bike paths are accessible to many homes for walks with your pets. Additional hiking opportunities on the mainland, whether in the Apalachicola National Forest or Tate’s Hell Swamp, are numerous. And many of the shops on the Island, and across the bridge in Eastpoint and Apalachicola, are pet-friendly too. We have pet groomers, too, and even a local pet boutique, Oysterbones, famous for their namesake gourmet doggy treats baked in-house.
Best of all, there are lots of places you can rent for your vacation that are pet-friendly. Resort Vacation Properties offers nearly 200 homes and townhomes on St. George Island that welcome pets!
Before bringing your pet to St. George Island, please read the Local Leash Laws.
