Make a holiday villa in St. Joe Beach your home away from home

One of a series of beaches on the Florida Panhandle's Emerald Coast, holiday villas in St. Joe Beach are uniquely positioned to exploit the best this stretch of the Gulf of Mexico has to offer. Fronted by 15 unbroken miles of sugar-white sand and facing due west as if to purposely plan for sunsets, St. Joe Beach holiday rentals seem simply made for barbecuing on the beach around a sundown campfire. A select few villas at St. Joe Beach are family friendly and have access to a pool, and all come fully equipped with every modern convenience.

Things to do

-Beaches: They don't come much better than the westward beach directly adjacent to St. Joe Beach holiday accommodation. Gleaming white sand and sparkling emerald waters put this broad strip of sand at pole position above the others in the area, but more sheltered and secluded coves are available via boat or car.

-Watersports: St. Joe holiday villas are sited on the long spit of land sheltering St. Joseph Bay and the town of Port St. Joe proper. Fishing on this stretch of coast is world renowned, and the region holds several saltwater world records. Marinas abound for fishing, boat hiring and charters, as well as sailing, snorkelling, family trips and tours.

-Nightlife: With plenty of bars, grills and seafood restaurants, the laid-back beach vibe complements the excellent local seafood. This area of the Emerald Coast is much more about hanging loose on the beach than hanging out on the dance floor, but Panama City is a doable drive for those who long for something more energetic.

-Golf: Golf isn't high on the agenda here with so much focus on the sea and beaches, but there is a superb 18-hole Championship golf course just south of Port St. Joe that's a challenge for any ability, and right on the coast.

-Eco Tours: Many of the marinas offer guided eco tours in addition to their fishing boat hires and charters. There's plenty to explore, with nature preserves like the St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge and the islands and bayous of St. Joseph Bay.

Weather in St. Joe Beach

Florida's reputation as a year-round destination is well deserved: even when summer temperatures rage well into 40°C inland, the southern coast remains comparatively cool. Typically, Florida summer temperatures don't exceed the mid-30s, though afternoon thunderstorms can be heavy, which account for most of the state's annual precipitation. Winters are short, dry and mild, often resembling British summers, with maximum temperatures hovering around 22°C.

Travel to St. Joe Beach

At around 65 miles from Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, St. Joe Beach is best achieved by air and hire car. There are no direct flights to Europe from this hub, however. The nearest direct flight options are Orlando at 368 miles away, Atlanta at 310, and Tampa at 314, so without making a significant day-long road trip, the direct flight option might be one to give up on. However, petrol is inexpensive and the highway system is second to none, so it is certainly doable. There are no public transport facilities.
