Sugar white sands, a safe swimming area, showers/change-rooms and a beautiful day out on the beach along the Emerald Coast. If you're lucky enough to stop at the Bayou, you may see a Gator or two along with plenty of interesting birds. St Andrew's State Park is a slice of heaven at the East end of Panama City Beach where... More

There's no better place to sink your toes in the sand. If you have children, the jetties kiddie pool is a great area to enjoy the water without the surf. There are also nature trails if you like a little walking and a great camping area. A perfect getaway anytime!

I am fortunate enough to live near St. Andrews State Park and I've been going there all my life. It is a lovely place to visit. Clean, well-kept, the beaches are incomparable. Swim, snorkel, or dive inside the jetties and you'll see all kinds of sea life. Swim, kayak, fish, whatever on the beach side; it's all good. Hike the... More

The Gulf facing side has about a 6 foot drop off from where you walk on the beach down to the beach by the water. Not the easiest to get down too. Park at the far end of the lot by the Pavillion's and walk to the jetty as the drop is not as big there. Another option is to... More

Lots to do here and really not much money to do it. Would be great with kids. We were just myself and husband, but we will for sure be back next trip when we have the kids. Take ferry out to shell island.
