The hub of the Forgotten Coast’s commercial oyster industry, Eastpoint is a quaint fishing community nestled directly on Apalachicola Bay. While Eastpoint is most famous for its fresh seafood, fabulous fishing and boating and paddling adventures, there are tons of other fun things to do here.
Forgotten Coast Cottages is located less than half a mile from Lynn’s Quality Oysters & Raw Bar and Eastpoint Beer Company—two of the area’s favorite destinations for delicious food and brews. Lynn’s is a 40+ year family owned and operated seafood market. The Raw Bar at Lynn’s serves up scrumptious fresh seafood, including raw, steamed and topped oysters, seafood gumbo, shrimp, beer and wine. Eat inside in the air conditioning or dine on the deck to watch the sunset over the bay. A small craft brewery located on the Apalachicola Bay, Eastpoint Beer Company offers a tap room with a variety of unique brews, stunning bay views and live music.
Eastpoint is also home to the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve (ANERR) and Visitor Center, one of Florida’s top research and education facilities. ANERR’s Visitor Center features tons of family-friendly fun, including fish tanks, walking trails, interactive displays, education programs and activities.
Less than 10 minutes from Forgotten Coast Cottages, Apalachicola is brimming with restaurants, shops, museums, live music venues, art galleries, theatres and breweries. Called “Apalach” for short by locals, this small coastal city is located at the mouth of the Apalachicola River and boasts a beautifully restored historic district.
Whether you’re looking for family-friendly adventures, energetic nightlife, a day of shopping or just a delicious meal, take a trip across the bridge to awesome Apalachicola. There are so many things to do and see in this picturesque port town.
St. George Island
When you’re ready to hit the beach, head out to St. George Island. Just 10 minutes from our cottages, this breathtaking barrier island is home to some of the most pristine beaches in the Sunshine State. Spend the day building sand castles in the sugar white sand, splashing in the crystal-clear Gulf of Mexico, searching for shells or just relaxing in the sun.
St. George Island also includes an array of restaurants, ice cream shops, beach supply stores, art galleries and more. Book a charter for some epic inshore or offshore fishing or rent a kayak or paddleboard for the day. Don’t forget to swing by St. George Island’s historic lighthouse, the Cape St. George Light, to snap a photo and explore the lighthouse museum and gift shop.
Only 15 miles east of our cottages, this quaint coastal community is a must-visit. Carrabelle, also known as the Florida Panhandle’s Gateway to the Gulf, is home to natural, unspoiled beaches, excellent fishing and plenty of Old Florida charm. While you’re there, climb the Crooked River Lighthouse for jaw-dropping views, check out the World’s Smallest Police Station and pay a visit to the Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum.
