Make a holiday apartment in Apalachicola your home away from home

Part of the 'Emerald Coast' of Florida's northwest panhandle, holiday apartments in Apalachicola are supremely situated. Not only do they give access to the incredible beaches of this popular spring break destination, but also back onto the peaceful wilderness of extensive protected parks and nature reserves. Apalachicola rentals are also drenched in the ambience of Old Florida; great for those hankering for a taste of the state's smaller coastal fishing communities, rather than the hectic partying found elsewhere. All holiday villas and apartments in Apalachicola are equipped with air-conditioning and satellite/cable TV, and have access to a tennis court. Most also have dishwashers, washer/dryers and DVD players as standard.

Things to do

-Nature: With the Dead Lakes State Recreation Area and Ochlockonee River State Park nearby, Apalachicola holiday rentals are a great staging point for hiking or biking into the wild. Campsites while out there range from full-service to primitive, and both saltwater and freshwater fishing are available.

-Beaches: The Emerald Coast is known for its almost continual line of beaches, and accommodation at Apalachicola is within striking distance of the party beaches of Panama City to the northwest, and the quieter St. George Island across the causeway.

-Watersports: With its location on a river delta, boating is a primary mode of transport here, and fishing a primary industry. While the commercial fleet may concentrate on shrimp and oyster, fishing charters for the more relaxing rod and reel variety are plentiful. Of course, there are the usual waterskiing and sailing opportunities, but the more adrenalin-addicted may find a better fix in larger coastal resorts.

-Nightlife: Nightlife in Apalachicola tends to be somewhat subdued compared to some of its more unruly neighbours, with establishments primarily focussing on seafood and an unforced, small-town atmosphere. Panama City is a great location for kicking one's heels up, however, and is less than an hour away.

-Golf: Golfing is a little sparse in the immediate vicinity, but there are good golf courses in nearby Port St. Joe, about 15 miles away, and also at St. James Bay Golf Club, about 20 miles east along the coast. Further afield the options get broader, with both Tallahassee and Panama City both having a nice selection of courses.

Weather in Apalachicola

Florida's subtropical climate lends itself well to holidaymaking activities, as its watery landscape tends to regulate temperatures and keep them tolerable. Summer, being the wet season, is long, hot and humid, with maximum temperatures hitting the mid-30°C range. The humidity often breaks into a thunderstorm during the afternoon, however, which can cool things off temporarily. Winters are quite like summers in the UK, with low rainfall and temperatures hovering around the low-20s.

Travel to Apalachicola

Flying and driving is really the only effective way to travel in the US, as public transport got left behind once the automobile took over. The advantage is petrol is pleasantly inexpensive, and the roads are remarkably well maintained and thoughtfully laid out. The nearest, and indeed only really viable, airport options are Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, at 82 miles away, and Tallahassee Airport at 75 miles away. There are no direct flights from the UK to these hubs, however, so the only direct flight airports are over 300 miles away.
