Florida’s Forgotten Coast is a registered trademark coined in the early 1990s by the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce. The name is most commonly used to refer to a relatively quiet, undeveloped and largely uninhabited section of coastline stretching from Mexico Beach on the Gulf of Mexico to St. Marks on Apalachee Bay in the U.S. state of Florida. The nearest major cities are Tallahassee, about 90 miles (145 km) northeast of Apalachicola, and Panama City, home of Tyndall Air Force Base, about 60 miles (95 km) to the northwest.

In addition to the endpoints, it encompasses the coastal communities of (west to east): Port St. Joe, Cape San Blas, Apalachicola, Eastpoint, Carrabelle, Lanark Village, Alligator Point, Panacea and Shell Point. These communities are located in the following counties, which by extension may be included in references to the Forgotten Coast by some writers: Gulf County, Franklin County and Wakulla County.
