Casino beach is probably what most people think of when they say PCB. It's the one with the huge parking lot and water tower painted like a beach ball. It has lots of amenities with food, bathrooms, lifeguards, etc but is the most crowded. If...More

The beaches are clean. Enjoyed the Blue Angels Air show! The traffic is not as bad as it is in places like Panama City.

Such a fabulous and affordable beach to travel to! We have returned every year for three years now and will continue to do the same! Super clear water, nice white soft sands, and affordable!

Beautiful part about of the United States. However, has become very popular with tourists, and can be very expensive in summer months and around holidays.

By far the best beach in the USA. Lots of great family activities...historical locations, jet skiing, parasailing, shopping, night life, etc.

You will be hard pressed to find a family friendly and prettier beach anywhere in the country. You can enjoy the beach and the touristy joints all while having the attractions and options of a large city just a few minutes away.

Overall nice place to visit. But be ready to pay a toll fee every time you enter and leave the beach area. And that's where we stayed. So to go get decent food and shop you had to leave out.

Beautiful clear water and clean beach! Easy access to the beach. Walk on beach only so it is quiet and peaceful.
