Group Camping on the beach - FL/AL/GA

I am looking for a suitable camping location for group of 18 adults and 20 kids. The site should have a pavilion for group cooking & hanging out. We have tents and would like to be either on or very close to the beach. We would like to do activities like snorkeling / fishing / para-sailing / boating (wave runner) etc.

I would appreciate if you could suggest places preferably in FL/AL panhandle or GA coast. I want to book in advance for 2014 memorial day / labor day.

Camping actually on the beach is not very likely, plus realistically it is not very nice. The sand is tough to stake a tent down (doesn't hold) and tromping in & out of the tent in soft sand equals sandpaper sleeping. Your group will probably enjoy it more staying in a park nearby the ocean.

To get some of your activities, like para-sailing and jet skis, you probably need to aim for a built up tourist town. They would be more likely to have operators offering such. The smaller, quieter towns most likely would not have such things, same for state parks.

For snorkeling, you may either have to head further south to the Florida Keys or find an area with some fresh water springs near the beach (snorkel in the springs, play on the beach).
