Took a day and headed to St. Andrews. It was so very worth it. We started with the trails and a walk around Gator Lake. Went out on the pier and took a stroll through the trail around the turpentine mill. Stumbled across a deer...More

We visited with our friends and found it to be a very pleasant experience. There was a nice boardwalk to the beach area, clean rest rooms and pleasant staff to assist with any questions. Very pleasant pricing for admission.

When in Panama City, take a little trip over to St Andrews State Park. It is only a few minutes down Thomas Drive. It cost us $8.00 to get in, but it is worth it and the money goes to help maintain the park. First...More

We enjoyed the jetties. The park was clean and well maintained. Nice play ground and great views with easy walking assess. Be sure and bring the bug spray. They had some mean mosquito. Prices were good to.

Thought we'd check out the state park after recommendations from friends. We agree with them -- it was perfect for young children (2&4) who want to go in the ocean but need slightly calmer water to actually swim in it. It was very clear, which...More

We very much enjoyed our St Andrews visit. We went to the beach by the west jetties and were able to see jellyfish and other fish, and the waves were much more gentle than the ones on the beach by our condo. Our little guy...More

My husband and I visited St. Andrew's to snorkel the jetties. It was perfect for beginners. There are 2 sides, the calm side and the gulf side. The calm side lent perfectly to snorkeling. Near the jetties, we saw many colorful fish, urchin, and jellyfish....More

There will still be boat trips over to Shell Island but the water may be too chilly to swim in unless you have a wet suit! You can still fish off of the St Andrews two fishing piers! The Black Drum and the Sheephead should... More
