Christmas in Cape San Blas

The best sunsets and seashells in Florida are on this forgotten coast! Cape San Blas, Florida

For the past couple of years we have spent Christmas at our favorite beach, Cape San Blas, Florida.

We love this beach so, so much. It’s pet-friendly, so Miley, Howie, and Winnie can take walks on the beach with us every morning. Cape San Blas is on a stretch of beach called “The Forgotten Coast“. You can see why! We had the beach almost all to ourselves. There are no huge condominiums here.

The cape faces west so the sun sets over the water every night.

You can even build bonfires on the beach! Every night we would build a bonfire, watch the sunset, and make s’mores.
