Imagine a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico with miles of beaches, tall dunes with a healthy growth of sea oats, and pristine tracts of marshes and marine reservations. That’s a rather enticing picture of St. George Island (SGI) off the North Florida Gulf Coast. Parts of the 28 mile-long (45 km) island are inhabited by 1,000 people living there permanently. St. George is a remote place in the United States, where you can observe wildlife in their natural habitat and then take a short ride for a souvenir hunt cum shopping spree. You can have your pick of upscale rentals in this peaceful beach community, with the lighthouse towering right above. Check out our list of the best Airbnb vacation rentals on St. George Island, Florida.

1. Restful studio space in Eastpoint (from USD 100)

A charming studio apartment in Eastpoint, just five minutes from the seafront should serve as a great start off point for your exploration of the Forgotten Coast. St. George Island is known for its pristine beaches, but parts of it are protected dunes and beaches within the bounds of St. George Island State Park. This Airbnb beach getaway is a cozy place with everything you need in order to rest and relax after a day of outdoor exploration.
