Excellent clean beach with tons of people having a blast! You may want to reserve beach chairs before you go as it can get crowded in the summer.

We stayed West of City Pier and downtown PCB and we're glad we did. From our vantage point the further west you go the cleaner the beaches are. We aren't into the late night party scene, just enjoy a nice relaxing time on the beach....More

Always fun to hang out for a week. Even if tropical storm Cindy did show up! Always a fun trip for the family during the summer.

The ocean is very pretty this time of year. We even found live sand dollars and a sea cucumber which I have never seen in all my years at the beach!

We stayed on the east end of PCB and for the whole day and a half we had before the storm hit it was wonderful. If you want to get away from the traffic and the crowds I definitely recommend the east end.

This was our second trip to PCB and it was just as good as the first. The beach was very clean and not overly crowded. I love how clear the water is the kids love seeing the little fish swim by. Great family vacation area.

Adventures at sea, but make sure you get a hold of them early they close at 4.
I see some photos of the beach looking very rough and then some looking like a calm pool. Any advice when or where I should go to experience the calm waters? Please and thank you.
