Cape San Blas Beach Access

Where are the public beach access points on the southern end of the cape that runs east to west? Also, now that the lighthouse is gone, is that area blocked off to drive closer to the beach? I want to go to the very tip of the cape on the southern end, but I cant find any public access areas from my re-search.

HELP PLEASE :)

Salinas Park has vehicle access to the beach and you can drive to the southern point during daylight only. You must have a Beach Driving Permit though.

Still no access to water where the lighthouse use to be.

Thanks!

I tried to Google Salinas Park to get an actual location, but nothing will show me. Do you know of a map that tells where it is? I think i'm going to walk since the permits are 150.00 :(

Go to.......https://www.visitgulf.com/riding-the-beach

There you will see map for all kinds of access, including cars/ vehicles. You click on the category you want i.e. walking/horse back/vehicles etc.

And here is a recent update:

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2016 9:14 AM

The beach on the peninsula of Cape San Blas is closed to beach driving due to environmental and safety concerns near the vehicle access point on Dunes Drive. The gate on Dunes Drive will remain closed until further notice. Current conditions do not allow vehicles to drive in several areas without driving beyond the buffer that protects our sand dunes and vegetation. The GCSO will continue to monitor and evaluate the condition of the beach daily.

302 Cape San Blas Rd

It's right after the fire station on the left.

If you are going to walk it, it will take you a few hours back and forth. I've walked it often. Bring lots of sunscreen.

If reaching the point is most important, park in Jubilation development and walk from there. It'll cut off lots of time. Jubilation is the last development before Eglin Air Force Base which is the actual property where the point is located.

The best way to get to the "Cape" which is the junction of the north-south beach and the east-west beach is to park at the Stump Hole (the rocks next to the road) and walk south for about 1/2 mile. Jubilation is a private subdivision with no public beach access or parking.
