Alligator Point is one of Florida's best kept secrets. Quiet and unspoiled, this location is perfect for those who are seeking a relaxed and unhurried atmosphere. The beach at Alligator Point allows for miles of unpopulated walks (no condos, motels, or bars on this beach!) and provides breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. If you are looking for huge crowds and hot nightspots, you need to go further west to Panama City 'cause it ain't happenin' here! Alligator Point was not named because of an over abundance of Alligators, it got it's name because from the air the land is shaped like an alligator's tail.

You are also only minutes away from some of the finest seafood dining in Florida. Angelo's restaurant, one of Florida Trend's Top 200 restaurants 8 years running. Located at the bridge in Panacea, Angelo's features fresh seafood cooked in a traditional and not so traditional Greek style. Posey's Restaurant in Panacea is also a great place to sit outside by the water and eat great seafood as you listen to some great music. There is also restaurant at the new golf course at St. James Bay that's supposed to be pretty good. All these restaurants are 10 to 20 minutes away.
Alligator Point is also centrally located to a multitude of recreational and sight-seeing activities. For the sportsperson, there is Wildwood Country Club, a beautiful new golf course right off Highway 98 in Wakulla county. This golf course is open to the public and only 25 minutes away. There is a brand new golf course about 15 minutes away at St. James Bay. For the tennis buff, there are 6 new lighted tennis courts that are free to use located about a mile west of Wildwood CC.
