State Parks in Panama City Beach

Panama City Beach is mostly known for its beautiful beaches and fun atmosphere, but what you may not know is it also offers an abundance of nature with 2 great state parks!

St. Andrews State Park

St. Andrews State Park is a 1,200-acre Florida State Park located on the east end of Panama City Beach. Well-known for its sugar white sands and emerald green waters, this former military reservation has over one-and-a-half miles of beaches on the Gulf of Mexico and Grand Lagoon. Water sports enthusiasts can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking and canoeing. Two fishing piers, a jetty, and a boat ramp provide ample fishing opportunities for anglers. Two nature trails wind through diverse native plant life and offer a wonderful opportunity for bird-watching – and you may even spot an alligator or two at the alligator lookout.
