Shell Island in St. Andrews State Park

Make Your Beach Life Dreams Come True

Have you always dreamed of kayaking in the crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico?  How about enjoying your own personal dolphin show while you and your family relax aboard a pontoon boat? These are just a few of the activities available at St. Andrews State Park.

Situated on miles of white sand beach at the southeastern limit of Panama City Beach Florida, St. Andrews State Park is the perfect day visit or camping spot for those who love water activities and the beach. Fishing, surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, and paddle boarding are all very popular there.

Cross the Pass to Find a Beach Paradise

From the boardwalk at the jetty store, you can see Shell Island across the St. Andrews Shipping Channel. This top local attraction is an undeveloped barrier island almost 7 miles long. If you are looking for the isolated beach experience, with nothing but empty sand stretching into the distance, Shell Island is for you.

Getting to Shell island is simple. The official Shell Island Shuttle runs every 30 minutes from 9 to 5 seven days a week in summer and every 60 minutes in winter. You can bring coolers, chairs, beach toys, and everything you need to spend a full day on the island. If you want, a kayak can be ready and waiting when you get to the island.

You have to bring everything you need out to the island, so if you forget something, be sure to stop by the Jetty Store or the Pier Store to stock up. Don’t forget that Shell Island is an unspoiled natural environment so plan on packing everything you bring out with you. Please don’t litter!
