Recent St. George Island reviews

  • Wedding Stay

    "We enjoyed the comfortable house and the views from the deck. We walked to the beach everyday and enjoyed looking at the wildlife and oleander and pines. We needed an elevator for one of our guests, so the house was perfect for a handicapped person and one shower even had a seat in it. (Floor in shower slippery so take a bathmat.) Would also be a great house for children with pool right there and beach not far. Thank you for a great beach week."

  • Wonderful Trip

    "We left this property on Friday and had a wonderful time. Everything about Hang Ten was great. The home was beautiful with everything you could want. The closeness to the beach was perfect. The island is so relaxing and just what we wanted. It was so nice to have the choice of the beach or the pool. My husband enjoyed fishing everyday. Bicycling was also enjoyable. This was a great vacation and we will definitely be back!!"

    "Absolutely awesome home..... What a pleasure to of rented such a awesome house. My newphew was married on the island and we decided to stay a few extra days. This house had every amenitie you could think of. The house was so clean and well maintained. Even though the sun never came out we still had the best time. We enjoyed the puzzles and playing cards. Thank goodness for the dock, we were still able to fish even though the weather was bad. We met the neighbors Charles and Jean. They were the sweetest couple! We will definitely rent again!"

Just off of Florida's Gulf Coast you'll find St. George Island, a serene 28-mile stretch filled with unspoiled beaches and natural beauty, amazing fishing opportunities and the cool, laid-back lifestyle synonymous with island living.

This Floridian island won't be overly crowded, so you don't have to worry about sharing your perfect spot of sand. You can truly relax as you enjoy the gorgeous blue water, peaceful waves and warm breezes. Fishermen (and women) will find ample opportunities to cast a line and possibly hook speckled trout, redfish, whiting, flounder, snapper, grouper, mackerel and many more species of fish from around the shores and piers.

St. George Island also boasts plenty of nature to explore, whether you want to plan group hikes, bike rides or animal watching. From parks to marshes, there are tons of places to see local flora and fauna. For indoor fun, the island offers excellent shopping options for some retail therapy or to find the perfect souvenir in addition to delectable dining options where fresh seafood is a must and a thrilling nightlife where you can enjoy your favorite libation at a local bar, listen to live music and dance the night away.

Things to Do on St. George Island

Cape St. George Light and Keeper's House Museum: Learn about a bit of the island's history at the Cape St. George Light, a 72-foot brick lighthouse. The original structure stood for 153 years until it fell in 2005, but it was restored in 2008. Today visitors can climb the 92 steps to the top of the light and check out the unbeatable bird's eye view. Next to the lighthouse you'll find a replica of the original Keeper's House that's now a museum and gift shop. Inside you can see exhibits about the history of the lighthouse as well as a collection of artifacts. There's even an audio-visual interactive archive where you can check out videos, documents and photographs.

Sea Oats Art Gallery: Art lovers will want to plan a trip to the Sea Oats Art Gallery, which opened in 1996 and features the largest collection of art on the Forgotten Coast from local artists and craftspeople. The selections are constantly evolving, and there are currently about 80 artists showing their work throughout the space. As you peruse the gallery you may get the chance to meet a local artist or craftsperson dropping off their latest work, all of which reflects the island lifestyle. If you're interested in making art, the gallery also hosts workshops throughout the year.

St. George Island Public Beach: At least one day (or many) at the beach is a must when visiting this Florida spot, and St. George Island Public Beach is a great option. It's easily accessible and offers stunning views. Find the perfect place to lay down your beach towel and settle in to soak up the sun, catch up on a hard-to-put-down book, build the world's best sandcastle, throw the Frisbee. Dive right in the warm waters for a swim or try and catch a wave. Not only is the beach user-friendly, but there are pavilions for a delicious picnic, a playground for the kids and a ball court. You're sure to enjoy a lovely day filled with tons of fun. You'll also be able to see the lighthouse from the beach.

St. George Island State Park: To spend some quality time in nature, head to St. George Island State Park where you can enjoy a day of outdoor activities including boating, kayaking, hiking, canoeing, swimming and more. Paddle out onto the waters or grab a map and plan out an exhilarating hike. No matter what you do, keep an eye for the local wildlife, including turtles and birds. When you need to refuel, the park offers picnic areas with grills for a delectable meal al fresco.

Some menu favorites include conch fritters, seafood gumbo, stuffed grouper and crab cakes. Meat lovers have plenty of options as well including steaks, chicken and burgers. After your meal, you can rent a jet ski and have some fun on the water.

Harry A’s: Another great dining option is Harry A's where you can get breakfast, lunch, dinner or a late-night snack. It's a laid-back place and they even have a kid's menu for the little ones. Some top dishes here include oysters, sandwiches, pizza, salads and, of course, the catch of the day. Dine inside or out on the patio.
