Some of the most beautiful beaches I've been. Soft white sand - and so clean.... definitely feel safe for kids to play in. Water is crystal clear. For a beach, this is as beautiful as it gets.

White sand. Clear water. It's beautiful. Bring beach chairs and snacks. Enjoy the day. Our boys took boogie boards and rode the waves. Waves aren't huge but there are some. Highly recommend the Panama City beaches.

Adventures at sea, but make sure you get a hold of them early they close at 4.
I see some photos of the beach looking very rough and then some looking like a calm pool. Any advice when or where I should go to experience the calm waters? Please and thank you.
