Russell-Fields Pier and M.B. Miller County Pier

Richard Seltzer Park

This public park is an awesome place that is known by locals more than tourists. With a rustic, classic beach feel it provides an opportunity to see the same extravagant views but in a less busy area of Panama City Beach.

State Parks

Two state parks call Panama City Beach home and are located at opposite ends of the city.

St. Andrews State Park is located off Thomas Drive on the east end of the beach and is the more popular option for visitors.

Camp Helen State Park is located on the west end of the beach near the Bay County line. This beach has a more private landscape viewing both the Gulf of Mexico and Lake Powell.

Public Beach Access Points

Panama City Beach is known for miles of breathtaking coastline, but did you know that there are nearly 100 public access points?

Each one of these locations offers visitors a unique view of different angles of the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico.
