PCB has the prettiest water and the nicest sand..best in Florida period! It was kept very clean. I love the days when it has more waves. At times, when the tide is right, it reminded me of Cancuns beautiful water.

Nice white beaches and awesome see through water. The only problem or concern I had is there are NO LIFEGUARDS ANYWHERE. Im not sure why Florida doesnt have any?? Anyway there is more than enough to do and eat for a week for your family. Bring extra money if ya want to do things off the beach. Its not cheap by any means. There are some good deals to be had you just have to look and ask. We have been to Myrtle Beach twice and this is much better and much cleaner.. I would recommend it.

Kids have great fun playing in the snow white sand with beautiful shells all around of all types and sand dollars of all sizes.

This is one of the major beaches in the US, so definitely consider this for a vaction if you're looking for classic beach. The beach is 27 miles long of Soft White Sand. Most ammenities are available such as parasailling, jet skis, kayaking, etc. It depends where you go on the beach. Also some good spots to watch Marine wildlife and snorkeling was good in some places. Also saw people fishing and actually catching fish. The beaches are pretty clean but seaweed is scattered along the beach in a lot of places. Tons of family entertainment, restaruants and a huge selection of condos and hotels with a wide range of cost for different budget levels. Not many lifeguards on the beach and are limited to major locations like PIer Park. Rip currents are common here, so be caferul. I stayed in July of 2013 and arrived just after some major thunder storms. The storm run off made the water in the east end very dark and brackish, but the west end water was super clear and good for snorkeling. The water depth is shallow and allows to you to walk out very far without the water getting over your head.
Waves are pretty mild, but we did have two days out of the week where my kids could boogy board. Spring break I understand is wild with college students, but in the summer this is mostly a family place. Traffic can get pretty thick on the beach front road.
