Make a holiday villa in Carrabelle Beach your home away from home

Carrabelle Beach holiday villas provide the perfect opportunity to get away from it all in a quiet Florida Gulf Coast town. If you like perfect sugar-sand beaches but shy from the boisterous party towns they often abut, HomeAway's Carrabelle Beach holiday rentals are an ideal choice. National forest parks are also plentiful in the region, opening up a wide variety of activity options for nature lovers. All rentals in Carrabelle Beach are fully air-conditioned, with modern appliances like dishwashers and washer/dryers to cope with mundane chores, and satellite/cable TV and DVD players to take care of entertainment during quiet evenings at home.

Things to do

-Attractions: Newly opened as an attraction in 2009 after a history spanning 114 years, the Crooked River Lighthouse is only reachable by boat from your Carrabelle Beach accommodation, but could easily be included with an excursion to the unspoiled beaches of Dog Island. The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1995, but restored by the Carrabelle Lighthouse Association and opened to the public.

-History: The WWII training facility, Camp Gordon Johnston, was sited here during the war, and trained over a quarter of a million men for the beach landings at Normandy. From your Carrabelle Beach apartment or villa you can drive to the now developed St. George Island, which served as a training beach alongside those on Dog Island.

-Festivals: If you time your holiday right, you could be in town for the Carrabelle Riverfront Festival. This two day humour-laced affair includes processions, parades, a Fishy Fashion Show, music, art, and masses of drink and local culinary treats, typifying the quirky cultural charm of this pristine corner of Florida.

-Beaches: White-sand beaches abound in this area of Florida, with the best and nearest to Carrabelle Beach located on St. George and Dog Islands. St. George is more developed, with more facilities, and can be driven to, but a boat rental from one of the local marinas can take all you need for a beach day on the adjacent unspoiled Dog Island.

-Nightlife: Quiet and peaceful, Carrabelle Beach is a community of a little more than 1,000 people, so dining and partying options are somewhat limited to a pub, a few cafes, seafood restaurants and a BBQ joint. As you spread your net further afield, your options do broaden: Tallahassee, a sizeable city, is about an hour away.

Weather in Carrabelle Beach

Carrabelle Beach's subtropical climate, tempered by its location on the coast, means it gets reasonably hot during the summer and stays warm during the winter. Temperatures can get up to 34-35°C during the summer, often with significant humidity. Thus, thunderstorms are common, which is why the summers are deceptively wet. The winters are drier and more mild, topping the low 20°C mark, meaning weather very much like a British summertime, making this an ideal year round holiday destination.

Travel to Carrabelle Beach

The nearest viable fly/drive option is Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport at 104 miles from Carrabelle Beach. Unfortunately, there are no direct flights to the UK from this destination, so it may be more convenient to fly to Orlando or Tampa, at 291 and 269 miles away respectively. Tallahassee Regional Airport is another option at 52 miles away, but longer layovers may make flying through here actually more time consuming. However, Americans tend to use planes like Brits use trains, so internal connections are about as efficient as air travel can get. There's no rail connection or bus, though you could feasibly taxi or shuttle.
