Things to do
-Watersports: For Perry - Dekle Beach accommodation fishing charters, the best bet is Keaton Beach Marina just four miles to the south of Dekle Beach. If visitors roam further afield, however, the multiple marinas of Steinhatchee are only half an hour away, which opens up a far larger selection of watersports to engage in.
-Beaches: Expansive sandy beaches are few and far between near Perry - Dekle Beach holiday rentals, though there are a few small ones scattered about. Larger beaches are a doable drive to the northwest and south, but this location is more about peaceful nature walks and fishing than sand and surf.
-Nightlife: The tranquil ambience of Perry and Dekle Beach doesn't lend itself easily to boisterous partying. There is the Beach Bar at Keaton Beach, however, if guests want to kick back surf-style, and Perry has a wide range of both chain and family-owned restaurants and bars, almost all conveniently located on the same strip.
-State Parks: There is a fantastic range of state parks to explore; from the Natural Bridge Battlefield Historic State Park, the site of Florida's second-largest civil war battle (reenactments take place every March weekend), to the Forest Capital Museum State Park which charts the history of Florida's logging industry. For swimming, fishing, camping and kayaking, there's also the convenient Lafayette Springs State Park.
Weather in Perry - Dekle Beach
Florida doesn't get as hot as many think. Whereas inland southern states can roast in temperatures above 40°C, Florida rarely gets above the mid-30°C mark, thanks largely to the moderating influence of the sea and profusion of inland water. Even in the winter, sometimes years at a time go by without a single frost, and average highs hit the mid-20s, reminiscent of a British summer. The rainfall is a different matter altogether, however, with most precipitation dropping as deluges from thunderstorms during the humid summers.
Travel to Perry - Dekle Beach
There are several airport options, with Jacksonville International Airport (149 miles away) and Northwest Florida Beaches Airport (150 miles away) being the nearest, albeit non-direct, flight hubs. Orlando International Airport is a little further afield at 209 miles away, but provides direct flights to Europe; the trade-off between an additional connecting flight or around an additional hour's drive is one travellers will have to contemplate. There's no train or bus public transport to speak of, so fly/drive is really the only choice, but this is far from a hardship thanks to the glorious efficiency of America's highway infrastructure.
