Dog-Friendly Cape San Blas Beaches 

Of course any visit to Cape San Blas is not complete without a day at the beach! Luckily, there are plenty of pet-friendly beaches for soaking up the sunshine and playing in the surf! Pets are welcome to every Gulf County beach apart from St. Joseph Peninsula State Park.  


Cape San Blas and Salinas Park are known for being uncrowded stretches of beaches that allow for plenty of four-legged fun! You can also make a stop at St. Joe Beach and Indian Pass for more shoreline to explore! During your visit to the Gulf County beaches, be sure to keep your dog on leash, be mindful of other beachgoers, and make sure to pick up any mess that your pup may make during your beach day. Also, although we know pups love digging in the sand, make sure that they do not dig near any marked turtle nesting sites!  

Pet-Friendly Cape San Blas Restaurants 

A day at the beach is sure to work up an appetite, and you’ll want to bring along your pup! Luckily, Cape San Blas features plenty of restaurants with pet-friendly patios. Head to the Krazyfish Grille for sushi, seafood dishes, sandwiches, burgers, and more that you can enjoy while your pup joins you on the patio.  


Provisions offers another pup-friendly patio and serves up delicious, internationally-inspired cuisine dishes ranging from pastas, salads, and more! For a slice of pizza, head to Joe Mama’s Wood Fired Pizza! With fresh dough made daily, you can’t beat a slice of this pizza! And of course, enjoy dining al fresco with your pup on their pet-friendly patio!
