Eastpoint is an authentic fishing community with a heart as big as the bay where one can truly feel untouched by today’s world. A place where seafood docks stretch almost the entire length of the community.
This narrow sliver of coastline just across the bay from Apalachicola and St. George Island is lined with rustic seafood houses where oystermen bring their heavy burlap bags of freshly harvested Apalachicola Bay oysters to be washed, shucked, packed and transported across the country.
Eastpoint is considered the Gateway to St. George Island. The area features a popular fishing bridge that parallels the bridge to St. George Island. To the north, Eastpoint is a gateway to the Apalachicola National Forest and Tate’s Hell State Forest through scenic Highway 65 – part of the Big Bend Scenic Byway.
