I was amazed at the change to the Cape since my last visit in 2012. The lighthouse has been moved to Port St. Joe and the island has become a sub-division. Not much to do and much harder to find a place to park and...More

Miles of vacation homes along beautiful gulf beaches and bay. A few small stores for essentials. Restaurants and shops are located in Port St. Joe and Apalachicola, about 25 and 40 miles away.

A stunning part of Old Florida with a beautiful beach and just a handful of stores to keep holidaymakers supplied but not to appear over-commercialised. ScallopRepublic is its only bar but it's a great one with 12 craft beers on tap. There's also a gas...More

Enough to do to keep the family occupied. Very nice beach. Not too crowded. Pets and beach fires allowed without a permit. Close to shopping and restaurants.

We were on bbn our honeymoon and visited friends staying on the Cape. The water was stunning! And the views couldn't be beaten! No crowds as most of the beach is private. We will stay on the Cape next year!

Sorry, I have never scalloped there. You may want to stop in Port St Joe on your way to CSB. I know friends who have scalloped in Port St Joe bay.
