There's the sand, the sea, the tranquil atmosphere and the ambiance of a serene life near the beach. For me, there's no place like St. George Island. I had packed for a week's vacation and yet when I got there, I wanted to stay longer. What makes this island irresistible? The life you find in this place is a picture of simplicity. Everywhere you will notice an unhurried type of existence that you know you can't afford to live for now -because your home is in the city.
St. George Island is surrounded by clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Apalachicola Bay. It's not very often that you get a chance to dip into charming beaches or eat plenty of oyster dishes. Yes, it can be a dream come true, but this scenario is very real. You surely will obtain a great time with several activities that will amuse you while on vacation.
For many visitors of this place, fishing is one of the most exciting thing you can do here. Charter boat companies are very willing to help get you into the best fishing spots in the locale. In fact, several species can be found in the Gulf waters, and you just have to determine what fish you wish to catch. Your boat charter guys will bring you to that spot where you can catch your fish of choice and partake of the sea's bounty.
Species that abound in St. George Island area are known as speckled trout, the redfish and many others. If you want to be like a true islander, you should also taste the oysters-they come in fresh at this location everyday.
But it's not all seas and the ocean that you find in this location. Other attractions such as the turtle sanctuary and bird watching plus trekking to the lush forests make this a complete vacation. At dusk you can head to the vacation home you have rented and be comfortable in a homely place. This is all you can do at St. George Island and yet you'd want it to last for a long long time.
