theres nothing better than seeing the water as you come into town and feeling the sand between your toes..wave action is mild enough for inexperienced swimmers..the best beach i have ever been to. never to crowded even during holidays. always gorgeous sunsets. and the most romantic wlks on the beach after sunset.. we stay in different hotels but always come to the same beach

Lots of entertainment available. Not the same beach it was just a few years ago. Very crowded and lots of trash built up by days end. I want to understand the eco reasons for it but the constant rejuvenation fails me. Where we were staying and a half mile each way there was very little waters edge to walk on. There was at least a 2ft drop off from the dry sand to the waters edge. Hardly anything in the way of seashells like there used to be. Seemed to be a lot more sea weed and plant growth in the water than years past. It makes me wonder if them constantly changing the natural beach formation is also changing the waters ability to recover itself. If the beach was the only reason to come here, I wouldn't be back.

Tons of things to do. Jet Ski's, board walk with tons of restaurants, hotels up and down the board walk and strip, many places to shop, go-cart, arcades, water sports, umbrella and chair rentals, scooter rentals, this place is loaded with everything and anything you can think of at a discount price. Definitely worth your time and money.

Made me sad seeing the plastic and cans on beach and in water at St Andrews. The jetty side was clean but the ocean side had the trash...a lot of it. It wasn't even after a holiday..don't know why the neglect. Can't blame it on spring breakers. PCB near Laguna was peaceful and pretty and clean. Just wonder WHY when it says no pets on this section of beach so many think theirs are human? Saw a couple of people actually "hiding" their dogs when Police drove by on 4 wheelers. They KNEW pets weren't allowed just didnt want to obey law. There is a nice pet beach near Pier Park...be considerate of others who don't break the law! Thomas's Donuts is a terrific place though!
