Panama City Beach

Stretching for 27 miles, Panama City Beach has white sands that meet clear turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Along this expansive shoreline are two state parks, waterfront restaurants, and a great range of attractions. You will find scuba divers and fishermen enjoying the artificial reefs offshore, and plenty of people relaxing on the beach.

Panama City Beach has practically every water sports you can think of, from boating to parasailing to diving and more - although the relatively sheltered waters of the Gulf don’t make for great surf. You will also find an amusement park nearby, as well as a water park, and putt-putt is there for the family. Take a boat ride to shell island for a day full of shelling, collect sand dollars, and swim in the warm Gulf waters with the dolphins.

If you want to do a spot of hiking, you can go to Camp Helen State Park where there are many trails. Panama City Beach is also home to St. Andrews State Park, where there is camping, fishing, or kayaking. There is no shortage of dining options, including Schooners Last Local beach Club where you can enjoy the great views as you dine.
