Thank you to Travelocity for sponsoring this post. The honest opinions are my own.
Gulf County is located in the panhandle of Florida. The entire county only has two stop lights, and visiting is a bit a like stepping back in time. The locals are friendly, welcoming, and laid back. The WiFi is spotty – which is a good thing when your goal is to unplug and relax. The average population density is 24 people per square mile, which leaves a lot of room for nature that doesn’t disappoint.
With 43 miles of shoreline, Gulf County offers many beaches to enjoy. From laying back and relaxing on beach towels, to building sandcastles, to swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, the beaches offer something for everyone and there are a number to choose from. They are also uncrowded, making them a true hidden gem in beach-loving Florida.
Loggerhead Sea Turtles
Gulf County is the largest nesting place for Loggerhead Sea Turtles in Northwest Florida. Turtle nesting season begins May 1st through the end of October, and during this time you can walk the beach with the St. Joseph Turtle Patrol. They adore and protect the sea turtle eggs and hatchlings and get just as excited as the tourists do when they can watch a little baby Loggerhead make its way to the Gulf. A truly unforgettable memory!
