St. Andrews State Park

Florida Map with star over St. AndrewsSt. Andrews State Park is located in Panama City Beach in the Florida Panhandle. The park’s beach is famous for its beautiful, crystal-clear emerald green waters and sugar white sands.

The waters are filled with marine life. Dozens of fish species, crabs, stingrays, mollusks, and other sea creatures can be seen while snorkeling. Visitors are regularly entertained by a pod, or group, of dolphins swimming and jumping as they play and forage for food in the Gulf of Mexico.

Rolling white sand dunes blanket the coastline. The dunes are covered with sea oats that help to protect the beach from erosion during storms and hurricanes. Picking sea oats is not permitted.
