PCB is a fun place to go for college kids on spring break. You can rent a place for a good price. The beach is really pretty with white sand, but I recommend 30A over PCB if you are bringing a family.

We absolutely love PCB. The beach sand is beautiful and soft. They do have some chairs available for rent but of course you can bring your own.
