See[edit]

Do[edit]

Watch the oyster boats come in on the waterfront with their oysters.

Buy[edit]

Fresh seafood from the aforementioned oyster boats - the fishermen will even put it on ice for you.

Eat[edit]

  • That Place On 98, 500 US Highway 98, +1 850 670-9898. M-Sa. Dine overlooking the Apalachicola Bay.
  • The Hut, 315 US Highway 98, +1 850-670-8024. Good fried seafood. Same restaurant used to be in Apalachicola, but was destroyed by a hurricane - relocated to Eastpoint.

Drink[edit]

Sleep[edit]

  • Sportsman's Lodge, 99 N Bayshore Dr (N on last road before bridge to Apalachicola), +1 850-670-8423. On the Apalachicola Bay in Eastpoint. The view is beautiful, but the motel is quite rustic. A better bet would be to stay in Apalachicola or St George Island. However, if you want to fish, there's plenty of room for your boat here.
