Beautiful beach! Great place to go! Super Clear water. Loved it! Entrance fee for a car 2+ people 8$. Not bad at all. Personally i think the fee is what keeps the beach very pretty.

Any time in in Panama City, I'm visiting St Andrews State Park. My favorite is the small trail beside the old mill. It's quiet. It's relaxing. And it's stunning.

While visiting Panama City Beach, we had red flags everyday and double red flags a few days. We had planned to visit St. Andrews to snorkel. There is a good sized lagoon behind the jetties. The water is very warm and very calm. On red...More
