Tiller Memorial Pier, Panama City Beach

St. George Island | St. Andrews State Park | St. Andrews Pier | Mexico Beach | Grayton Beach State Park

This tall wooden pier is on the west end of St. Andrews State Park beach. There is a picnic pavilion and a beach store here. The biggest crowd is down at the jetty, so on the day I visited, there were only a handful of people on the pier. What I enjoyed most about the pier was the wonderful bird's-eye view of the crystal clear water. I could just stand there for hours enjoying the beautiful emerald green water. I took some nice photos and shot some video. If you look east you can see the rock jetty near the inlet, and if you look west you'll have a great view of the tall resorts on Panama City Beach. It doesn't cost anything to walk out on the pier. After all, you've already paid the entrance fee to the Park.
