My Forgotten Coast
Florida's Forgotten Coast is the name commonly used to refer to a quiet section of coastline stretching 130 miles through 3 counties (Bay, Gulf, Franklin and Wakulla) from Mexico Beach to St. Marks, Florida including the areas of Port St. Joe, Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, Apalachicola, St. George Island, Eastpoint, Carrabelle, Dog Island and Lanark Village..extending east to St. Marks, Shell Point, Mashes Sands, Panacea and Alligator Point and St. Teresa in Franklin County. This portion of Old Florida was indeed "forgotten" during the period when much of North Florida's coastline was developed...and subsequently over- developed. The Forgotten Coast is a special place today, more for what has been preserved than for what has been developed. Pristine bays, sugar white beaches, coastal marshlands, estuaries rich with sea life, and barrier islands with impressive dune formations...this is what the Forgotten Coast has to offer!
