VIEW OF ST. VINCENT ISLAND
Because of the unique topographic features of Indian Pass Beach there are many different spots to choose from. You can hang out right next to the water or you can protect yourself in the cooler months between the natural sand dunes. You literally can walk the beach for miles. Indian Pass is one of the more popular bird watching areas in the country. Not to mention the almost daily sightings of dolphins frolicking in the water. Wildlife is abundant here. Old Florida at its best. Bring your boats, wave runner, kayak, sailboat, bikes or rent one. There is a boat launch less than 1 mile away from THREE PALMS COMPOUND at the Indian Pass campground. Here you can also stock up on supplies for fishing or snacking.
St. Vincent is less than a quarter of a mile away by ferry from the Indian Pass Campground. You can rent bikes here, take the ferry across the channel and explore one of the most beautiful nature preserves found anywhere (link enclosed). Of course you can walk all over the island and fish or swim in total seclusion. Cars are not permitted. Speaking of FISHING, Indian Pass has some of the best fishing you’ll find anywhere. Indian pass is bordered on the East by Indian Pass Lagoon, a shallow waterbed full of many varieties of fish and home to the famous Indian Pass oyster beds.
The Gulf is on the west side, and I personally have caught eight different kinds of species of fish. At the tip of Indian Pass, by the campground, there is a waterway that comes from the confluence of the Apalachicola River and Bay that goes out to the Gulf. St. Vincent Island is on the other side of this passageway. This is an ideal fishing spot because of the travel patterns of the fish feeding and going out to the Gulf. This is particularly fantastic when the breezes are high out on the gulf. So when you leave the drive way of 3 PALMS you turn right and enter the beach to fish or you could take a left and walk 1/4 mile to the Indian Pass Lagoon and fish, or go to the campground, and fish the protected channel. Indian Pass offers an extremely unique and diversified fishing experience, well suited for the many varieties of fish, in any kind of weather condition.
The screened in fish cleaning room located at ground level is perfect for preparing your freshly caught delicacy. With two stainless steel sinks and cutting board. If and when you get tired of fishing in this wonderful little community you can always pick up a guide and go fishing in St. Joe Bay. Presnell’s Harbor is 10 minutes away and they can fix you up with a guide, the equipment, including license, and find some great action in the bay. They will clean your catch as well, 4 hours cost $100, or so.
Want to go deep Sea fishing? See link for some of the greatest deep sea fishing ever. During the season (summer) grab a bucket and go pick scallops yourself. Check out Dead Lakes, check out the Apalachicola River, where 6 rivers come together and create the greatest oyster bed in the world. The Indian Pass compound is a very quiet family oriented, people friendly place. Where you can walk the tiny neighborhood and kids can even ride their bikes. It has a very special ambiance and solitude, amidst a very, very unique opportunity to be one with nature in the Florida Panhandle area. Please click on the link for activities and dining opportunities in the area. A must place to eat is the world famous Indian Pass Raw Oyster Bar. Located less than a mile from 3 PALMS at C-30 and Indian Pass Road. You can’t miss it, is the old dilapidated rundown gas station. Don’t be deceived however; they have some of the best and freshest oysters, shrimp, crap and jambalaya you’ll ever taste. You can get food to go here as well. In the evening folks hang outside with beverages and listen to some great music and socializing .Got more friends or family coming? Have them camp at the campground or stay at the Turtle Beach Inn located on Indian Pass Road. A wonderful bed and breakfast right on the gulf. St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. is just minutes away and there is a seven mile bike trail from Cape San Blas Road out to the park, which is seven miles long and has Gorgeous Beaches and Sand Dunes.

Relaxing and well thought out!! A few years ago, we decided to gather with family and friends over Thanksgiving at the beach. We chose Three Palms this year and feel that it was an excellent choice. We had plenty of room for our family and dogs. We loved the beach access and the laid-back feel of the area. The house was well equipped and everyone had a quiet place to relax either inside or outside. We came with adults, dogs and teenage girls. All had fun! Shuffle board was a hoot! The outside shower was a blessing especially after the dogs had their run on the beach. The weather was too cool for a swim in the pool, but the fenced backyard was great for the dogs. Donna and Peter were gracious and very helpful with any needs. If you rent this property you will LOVE it and the area! Thanks for a great place to get away and enjoy family friends and be able to bring our dogs! Read the full review…

This was our first time renting a beach house on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Our stay was a great experience. The owner was most helpful throughout the booking process and especially conscientious during the week to assure that we found everything in a satisfactory condition. While there, he made a couple of calls as did the concierge (Donna) to see if we needed anything or had any problems. We found the property very clean inside and out and were pleased. Donna made helpful suggestions and thoroughly answered questions regarding local restaurants, etc. We ate out a couple of times, but took advantage of the excellent kitchen facilities and ample dining areas.
