This slender peninsula of sugar-white sand juts into the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico in the center of Florida's northwest coastline. For years St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, which occupies the last 10 miles of the peninsula, was the only sign of development. Now, the park has a friendly neighbor.
Barrier Dunes is a gated community development located just outside the gates of the State Park. Townhomes and palm trees, sand dunes and sea oats, lakes, boardwalks and beaches all blend to create a peaceful unspoiled environment in which to live and play. Many homes are available for weekend or week-long vacation stays, and can be rented through local vacation rentals companies. Some are also available as long-term rentals.
