About Alligator Point …
On Alligator Point is a small, very private, Gulf front community , called Bald Point, which consists of 46 beach homes that are protected on three sides by award-winning Florida State Park and National Wildlife Refuge. This peaceful, natural, old Florida environment is an integral part of a very fragile and rare eco-system. It is home to many endangered or threatened species. From the early fall influx of the beautiful Monarch butterflies, the migrating Falcons and the Bald Eagles to the summer nesting of the endangered sea turtles that return to Bald Point each year; it is home to a way of life that is almost extinct on the Florida coast. Watch for the Florida Bear, an abundance of deer and wild turkey combined with and abundance of sea life including the live sand dollar and starfish, prehistoric Horseshoe Crab and many colors of sea coral and sponge.
There are no high-rise condos, amusement parks, bars, or neon lights on Alligator Point. Bald Point on Alligator Point is off the beaten path which insures countless opportunities to spend quality time with your family and witness the incredible genius of our Creator. Early morning and midnight strolls on the beach are unrivaled. Sand dollar and starfish hunting between the sand bars during low tide,as well as, the morning and afternoon appearance of the playful porpoises will delight children and adults, alike. The baby blue/ pink waters and sky that run together at every sunset are indescribable and the evening heat lightening shows are spectacular. The shooting stars are too numerous to count; but let your children try.
The Ochlocknee Bay, the grass flats and the Gulf surrounding Alligator Point abound with delectable seafood. The Spanish Mackerel run in front of the house and the Blue Crab run rampant. If you don’t like to catch your own dinner however, the Forgotten Coast specializes in fresh seafood restaurants and fresh seafood wholesalers. It is hard to go wrong when selecting a seafood restaurant in Franklin or Wakulla counties. Just remember, be patient! This is a much laid back, slow, “Old Florida” way of life.
We hope you take the time to sit back, relax and enjoy a slower pace. Be sure to go to bed early enough to wake up to a Heavenly Sunrise. Words cannot describe the incredible beauty of each and every sunrise. The screen porch provides spectacular views as you drink your morning coffee, however; each bedroom provides the same sunrise view for those who want to go back to sleep after the sunrise.
Most importantly… remember that fresh water is our most scarce resource on Alligator Point. We ask that you make every effort to conserve water. Also, litter is detrimental to this fragile eco-system. Please make sure all household garbage is removed from the beach daily and securely bagged.
