Panama City Beach has 27-miles of beautiful beaches to choose from, and you'll find a different experience at each stop along the way. On Shell Island, you can find miles of beach with hardly a footprint that isn't your own, no development, and no access other than by boat. In St. Andrews State Park the beaches are easy to access, and undeveloped, while Camp Helen State Park's beach offers an even quieter beach escape, but requires a short walk to get to the Gulf. At Schooner's Beach or behind the "Super Clubs" LaVela and Spinnaker, you can see and be seen, participate in beach volleyball, or grab a quick snack and drink without leaving the beach!


With 5 championship golf courses, 320 days of sunshine a year, and an average temperature of 74 degrees, it's no wonder that Golf Digest magazine named Panama City Beach one of America's top three golf towns. In fact, with 162-holes to play, you'd be hard pressed to squeeze all the great golf Panama City Beach offers into one vacation.

Panama City Beach is famous for fishing of all kinds - especially deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. But serious anglers also catch plenty of fish from the piers along the beach and St. Andrew Bay, or by casting a line directly from the shore. Anglers will also enjoy bay fishing, or scouting a local river or freshwater lake.

Novice and experienced fishermen alike will be thrilled with the variety of fresh and saltwater fishing options available in Panama City Beach.

Spas & Fitness

For some, going on vacation doesn't mean leaving their fitness regimen behind. For others, total relaxation involves a specialty spa service, or a professional massage. Either way, you can find exactly what you're looking for in Panama City Beach, where many resorts offer full fitness centers, local gyms offer day passes or short-term memberships, and luxurious spas let you truly unwind and leave your troubles behind while you relax and enjoy a spa treatment such as a manicure, pedicure, facial, or massage.

By day, Panama City Beach is flip-flops and fun. But once the sun goes down...still flip-flops and fun, you may want to trade your sandals for sneakers if you're looking for a line dance, but Panama City Beach nightlife doesn't ask you to dress to impress, just have a good time!

On the one hand, we've got places where the party never stops - clubs like Tootsie's Orchid Lounge (sister club to Nashville's world-famous honky-tonk) and Club La Vela the biggest nightclub in the United States, plus smaller whoop-it-up spots like Ms. Newby's and Pineapple Willy's.

But Panama City Beach has a laid-back side, too, with great live music at restaurants and lounges like Boatyard, Spinnaker Beach Club, Pineapple Willy's and more.
