My family travels here once a year, every year and has been coming since before I was born. I always think it is beautiful and fun and a great place to spend a few days or weeks! The beach is wide and good for walking.

Hi SunshineBeachChic, My family and I have been going to PCB for 20 years and it's our favorite. The sand is so soft, sugary white, and doesn't burn your feet like darker sand does. The ocean is a beautiful aqua and emerald... More
