With temperatures in the 60s and 70s on average, Cape San Blas is a wonderful place to visit in the spring! You may need a light jacket at night, but you'll get the beauty of a pristine beach, without all the crowds that normally accompany spring break beach trips. Cape San Blas has no hotels, so you'll never see the beaches too crowded for comfort.

The cape offers a family friendly spring beach vacation location, with plenty of fun activities, great local restaurants, and pristine nature. And don't forget about the amazing sunsets on the cape!


As you may have guessed, summer temperatures on Cape San Blas are perfect for water activities. In the summer months, you can enjoy temperatures averaging in the 80s and 90s. Along with perfect weather and warm ocean temperatures, you'll also be visiting during turtle season on Cape San Blas. Every year from May through October, Loggerhead & Greenback turtles make their nests in the sands of Cape San Blas.

During the first half of the turtle season, the turtles will dig nests and lay their eggs. Local wildlife experts will mark these nests once the turtles finish, to help them stay protected as the eggs prepare to hatch. The second half of the season, thousands of tiny baby turtles make their way from the safety of their nest, to the ocean waters of the Gulf of Mexico. If you're lucky, you may just get to see the turtles build their nests, or see the hatch-lings make their way to the ocean!


Fall is a special season on Cape San Blas. Not only can you get some great weather averaging in the 70s and 80s (not too hot and not too cold), but you may get to see the Monarch Butterfly Migration as it passes over Cape San Blas and Apalachicola. The butterflies migrate each fall from Canada to Mexico, pollinating local plants along the way.

Along with the chance to see the stunning butterfly migration, you may also catch the tail end of turtle season. This means you'll have to make sure you turn off outdoor lights after dark and remove any beach obstacles such as chairs, holes, or sandcastles, but along with this extra responsibility you get the chance of seeing baby sea turtles hatch and make their way to the ocean!


With average temperatures in the 50s and 60s, and spikes up into the 70s if you're lucky, Cape San Blas in the winter can be a needed escape from colder temperatures up north. In the winter you won't want to go swimming, as ocean temperatures are too cold for comfort, but with a light jacket you can still enjoy comfortable walks on the beach and an endless supply of colorful sunrises and sunsets.

Since there are no hotels on the cape, you'll never find it too crowded, but if you enjoy the extra solitude of off-peak season, you'll love visiting the cape in the winter. During sunset hours, you may be the only person for miles as you walk on the beach. Some families even have a tradition of spending their holiday season on the cape!
