State Park Nature / Park
A barrier island park known for great shelling and fishing, Saint George Island State Park attracts visitors in search of white sandy beaches and emerald waters. You can swim, kayak, hike, canoe, and camp at this park, which varies in topography from rolling dunes and forests to quiet coves and undeveloped beaches. Situated between the Gulf of Mexico and Apalachicola Bay, the island has existed for 5,000 years. It wasn't until the 1960s, though, that the state built a causeway, which brought the public starting in 1980. It's a nice spot to bird-watch and observe other animals, such as sea turtles.
