My wife and I had a lovely time walking the entire beach front of St. Andrews, and many of the trails on the back side as well. Nice to see what the more natural condition of this area was like before all the development of Panama City.

This is a lovely beach and a wonderful place for families. There are safe swimming areas for children and areas with big waves for the big kids and adults. There are wonderful camp sites at an affordable price.

A great place to get away from the beach congestion to enjoy the quiet and natural environment. We enjoyed hiking the nature trails observing water birds and keeping an eye out for gators. We'd heard that there are deer here but didn't see them. There are jetties with large rocks protecting the entry to the bay where you can fish.... More

1st time to St. Andrews, and pleasantly surprised. Even though just yards from a busy area, it was surprisingly quiet and you don't know the outside world is there. We had a great spot right on the water, egrets walking across our lot in the evening. Looking out across the water at the city was beautiful. The best sites IMHO... More

We were able to see them clearly through the clear water. There are also well kept hiking trails where we saw large birds and... More

If you are ever in PCB, you must take the time to cruise through St. Andrews Park. For the beaches, fishing, wildlife, sightseeing, etc., it is a must do.

To be fair it was the middle of the day and they were probably asleep in some of the wooded areas. And there is a lot of construction going on at one of the piers but, the piers offer you an excellent view of the beach and the ability to fish in the surf, inlet and in the bay. I... More
