There are multiple areas to hang in. The rocks blocking the cove-ish area that allows for little wake is great for the kids. The other areas are great for the older crowds. You can get parking if you can get there early enough. It fills up quickly.

This is another place my Lady had to expose me to. The sand is white, water clear and the scene majestic. We (I) blew up our floating raft and hit the water. We talked and laughed as we bounced and were bounced by the waves of the Gulf. We later sat back and took the scene all in, collected some... More

To get to shell island we needed to get the water taxi from St Andrew's. Before boarding the taxi we drove around the park viewing the marsh overlook and gator lake. The lake has a walking trail which we used hoping to spot some alligators. We saw signs of alligator activity along the water but unfortunately were not able to... More

My daughter isn't to fond of the ocean. We heard that this was the place to go then. It was beautiful and she even went in the water several times. The water is calm and very clear. We will be going back before our trip is up. We went early around 9 and left by 1, by then it was... More

Beautiful waters, uninhabited beaches. We snorkeled. Had a great time. I think everybody that visits PCB should spend a day at St Andrews.

We snorkeled a high/slack tide as recommended and the visibility was fantastic. We saw, lots of fish: sheepshead, rays, pinfish, needlefish, small tropicals, wrass, and even an Eagle ray! I will positively do this again. This made the trip to PCB

The June grass had moved in and made swimming in spots impossible , the kiddie pool was overcrowded, so we went and explored the park. Lots of other fun things to do. If you have small kids this would be a good place to go,but I would save my money if your going yo swim and go up the road... More

The kiddie pool is fantastic and safe for the little ones. The clear shallows have no breaking waves and plenty of space to explore.
