A drive down the quaint, tree-lined streets of Apalachicola evokes the rich history of the area with its century-old homes and charming downtown area. Known by locals as simply “Apalach,” this waterside city is famous for its bay oysters and outstanding fishing. A friendly and welcoming atmosphere keeps visitors returning to this original Florida town.
While the beaches are just a short drive away, it’s also fun to take a tour boat up Apalachicola River or enjoy a scenic paddle in the river tributaries. Explore natural Florida at its finest via kayak, canoe or paddleboard.
With its prime coastal location, Apalachicola is perfectly situated to offer some of the freshest dining experiences along the Gulf Coast. Start your day with a homemade breakfast burrito at Café Con Leche before lunching on sautéed local grouper and duck confit fries at the Owl Café.
