Tourists on the Gulf Coast of Florida love a trip to St Andrews State Park, but the peninsula doesn’t have any hotels of its own. Luckily it’s just a short hop from these great stays in Panama City, Grayton Beach and South Walton – bookable on Culture Trip.
When you first see pictures of St Andrews State Park, you might think you’re looking at the white sand beaches and turquoise waters of the Bahamas, but you’d be about 600 miles out. The park and its two and a half miles (4km) of pristine sands are actually just off Panama City in Florida’s panhandle – also known as the Emerald Coast. Stay at one of these hotels and you’ll be a just a hop away from the sand and clear Gulf waters, plus watersports galore and the best fishing you can shake your rod at.
