If you’re reading this, you probably already know Panama City Beach has amazing beaches, super awesome white sand, crystal clear emerald green waters and flat-out amazing weather all year long. We’re lucky to live down here, and you’re lucky to come vacation with us.
Panama City Beach is regarded as the “world’s most beautiful beaches” – because they are. Our sand is so white, northerners often comment that it looks just like snow. The water’s a clear, emerald green and depending on your style, you can find beach that’s packed with crowds, or beach that’s vacant and all to yourself. From one end to the other, it’s 27 miles of perfect paradise.
The beach is amazing, we covered that. But here are some of the other things that make Panama City Beach so cool:
With the real estate boom a few years ago, amazing gulf-front condos grew up everywhere. We specialize in west-end condos, ones that are near to Pier Park. This end of the beach tends to be more family friendly and quiet. The condos that are on this end of the beach are newer, nicer, and offer tons more amenities, such as huge gulf-front pools, enormous fitness centers, covered waterparks for the kids and tons more. Most of the condos are around 23 floors with Tidewater Beach Resort ringing in at an impressive 30 floors. Some don’t like being high-up, but for me, I’ll take the upper level floors any day – I love the view.
Pier Park is a 1.1 million square foot shopping adventure fit with mom-and-pop retailers, big-box chains and department stores, a large variety of dining and a huge 16 theater movie cinema. With over 100 shops and restaurants, you’d be hard pressed not to find what you are looking for here. You can get anything from seafood to burgers to wings and dress anyone from your toddlers up to grandma and grandpa. Looking for live entertainment? Every New Year’s Eve and July Fourth Pier Park holds huge events and all through the summer, live bands play in their promotional area in front of Starbucks.
Tons of cool attractions.
Whatever you’re looking for, we’ve got it. Mini-golf? Check. Go-carts? Check. Dune Buggy track and racing? Check. Zip line? Check. Dolphin tours, Zoo World, Gulf World Marine Park, Shipwreck Island – if you need a break from the beach or just want to do something different, Panama City Beach is perfect for you. Destin’s nice, but they’ve got nothing on our extracurricular activities.
Best diving in the country.
Short of going to the Florida Keys or Hawaii, we have THE BEST diving in the USA. Just a few miles off our coast, we have a plethora of wrecks and man-made reefs that play home to a large abundance of marine wildlife including grouper, tuna, shark, flounder, octopus, and hundreds of other species.
Whether you’re wanting to go deep sea fishing on one of the Captain Anderson Marina’s head boats, or charter a private yacht to go on a deep sea fishing adventure, Panama City Beach is the place to be. Just about any type of sport fishing game or recreational fishing – we have it. If you’ve always wanted to strap into one of those big chairs and see what it’s like to reel in a fish that’s bigger than you, you can do that in Panama City Beach. Shoot, if you time it right, you may be able to even catch a sailfish off our Dan Russel Pier.
Tons of cool nature stuff.
Northwest Florida is home to some of the coolest state parks in this part of the country. On the east end of the beach is St. Andrew’s State Park, on the west end is Camp Helen State Park. Both have tons of amazing nature trails, quiet beaches and historical artifacts to take a peek at. Just west of here are several more state parks, and to the north is Falling Waters which has tons of amazing waterfalls and the Florida Caverns where you can actually go spelunking.
