Being outside is the way of life in Panama City Beach, and luckily there are plenty of opportunities to explore the native nature and diverse landscape of the area. St. Andrews State Park is a 1,200-acre park along the St. Andrews Bay and Gulf of Mexico featuring 1.5 miles of pristine shoreline. The park’s Shell Island is a popular spot to go dolphin watching, shelling, or just exploring.
