Wilderness camping in East Cape Florida

East Cape is located in the farthest point of the southern US. Here, you get to yourself a relaxing beach, an abundance of wildlife and calming waters. This beach is regarded as one of the wildest beaches to exist in Florida. East Cape Sable has spectacular beauty and is indeed a great place for camping. The mangroves with the upright roots and the venomous manchineel are some of the striking fauna of this region. The view of sunrise and sunset from the beach is a treat to the eyes. You have got so much more to take in from this extremely remote and thrilling trail.

You are recommended to rent a kayak from Flamingo marina to reach East Cape. The 11-mile journey of about 5 hours on a kayak is itself a stunning trip. On your way to the beach, you shall cross wondrous other islands and eye-catching beaches. A huge number of tourists choose Cape Sable as their camping site. Pods of dolphins swimming in-sync across the bend is a stupendous vision. You shall try fishing if you have plans to stay overnight. Moreover, be prepared to see American crocodiles. If you are lucky you might as well swim with manatees.
