About Panama City Beach


With over 27 miles of hotels and sugary white sand along the Emerald Green Waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Panama City Beach is the ultimate vacation destination. Swimming, sunning, parasailing, jetskiing, sailing, fishing, boating....the list is never-ending. Panama City Beach offers beach activities for everybody.


An average of 320 sunny days annually make Panama City Beach the ultimate seaside getaway year-round. Long a favorite with students on spring break, the area has plenty to offer visitors of all ages, not the least of which are 27 miles of white-sand beaches lapped by the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Even if you’re really a landlubber at heart, you’ll find plenty to do at Panama City Beach. Shopping, golfing, and hiking the nature trails at St. Andrews State Park are all popular pastimes away from the water. Or, for an up-close look at the dolphins and other undersea wonders that doesn’t involve getting your feet wet, opt for a tour in a glass-bottom boat. Many tour operators also make stops at Shell Island.

The mild, sunny weather means that Panama City Beach is a popular venue for special events year-round, and the area hosts everything from seafood festivals to wine tastings, arts and crafts fairs to open-air concerts. Many visitors return every November for the prestigious Florida Ironman Triathlon. Other popular annual events include October’s Southeastern Barbecue Fest Cookoff, April’s Emerald Coast Triathlon, December’s Boat Parade of Lights, and the Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show and Music Festival, held in April.


Rated number one beach in the 1995 survey of the world's beaches, and the number four beach in America by The Travel Channel in 2000, Panama City Beach is truly the mainland paradise.
