After spending about five months here this winter, I can say without hesitation that St. Andrews State Park is my favorite beach, attraction, way to spend a day. This winter has been fairly chilly and stormy and there is no better beach from which to watch the waves, surfers, windsurfers, and people in general. The beaches are clean and uncrowded.... More

St. Andrew's State park is a great destination for locals and tourists, alike. The jetties and pier offer great fishing opportunities. A large tide pool is shallow and calm, perfect for the kids. There's a boat ramp and hiking trails, plus wildlife viewing areas. For history buffs, the turpentine still includes plaques and old equipment that date back before the... More

What a great park! My son and I went swimming and fishing our first day, then hiking and swimming again the next day. It was a great place to swim and have some shade to eat our lunch under the pavilion. We make frequent trips (sometimes even day trips!) from Atlanta, and this is always were we visit first!

This is a great small park located on a beautiful beach. You can sit on the rocks and watch the boats entering St Andrew Bay from the Gulf...or you can walk the sugar sands as far as you like. Very scenic, easy to reach.

Certain things prevent me from giving 5 stars, From Pensacola to Panama City Beach, Florida; tourism has taken a backseat to safety. Nice place to visit, unless you are local. Locals in PCB love taking care of our tourists, but the safety of these people is unknown, but the working locals aren't so sure. Money and influence change people...!?/&!/ see... More
