Default The Forgotten Coast

I just got back from two weeks of riding on the FOrgotten Coast of Florida. This area is from Shell Point to Mexico Beach on the NW Coastline of Florida. Bald Point and Alligator Point are awesome on an East or NE wind. There is a small state park at Bald Point. Hurricane Dennis ate the place up with erosion and weveral houses got knocked down and destroyed by the tidal surge. Carrabelle beach is an great launch spot and works well on NE, E and anything from the south. There is a great campground with wifi across the street; Carrabelle Palms. St. Geroge Island is a great spot, but the campground was washed away from Dennis and part of the park. The new bridge was untouched. Apalachiacola had damage as well and offers a couple of launch spots, but lots of oysters on the bottom. Cape San Blas offers the best conditions and launch spots in this entire area, as it will catch any wind direction and has a bay aas well as the Gulf. You can ride in side-on conditions when it blows NW at the State Park. Also, Eagle bay inside the state park has perfect butter conditions and lots of room. This time of year it should be called the mosquito coast. Next stop down is Mexico beach which has great launch spots as well, especially for anything from the SW, W and NW.
The next stop is Crooked Island which is accessed through the military base property. It has a huge beach and lots of black tip sharks. Now we are back to Panama City Beach and the Emerald Coast. For a list of launch spots here go to
