Author 01-16-2024

Valentine’s Day is a day to spend quality time with your partner, share memorable moments with one another, and talk about your future. There is no better way to enjoy one-on-one time than to head somewhere that is relaxing, filled with nature, and offers the perfect combination of relaxation with excitement.

We recommend going south to the beautiful Sunshine State, filled with beaches, incredible coastline, bright blue water, incredible wildlife, and much more. Bring your partner along to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Panama City Beach to show just how much you care about them.

Dolphin Cruise

One of the top things to do during your time in Panama City Beach is to take a dolphin cruise. This fun activity gives you an up close and personal view of the incredible creatures that are often seen swimming and jumping out of the bright blue waves while you swim or surf in the water. Check out Adventures by the Sea to book a personal or private cruise or a group tour for just around $45 per person.

The Adventure by the Sea company ensures you can get as close as possible to provide the ideal photo opportunity without disturbing the animals in their natural habitat. Watch as dolphins jump out of the water, swim right alongside the boat, and talk to one another. You can even combine the dolphin tours with Shell Island cruises to head to the nearby island, go snorkeling, and explore this tiny oasis.

Suppose you want to go a little faster to increase the adrenaline during your romantic day out on the water. In that case, you can also book a Waverunner Tour with Adventures by the Sea, offering a waterproof camera for memorable photos, snorkeling equipment, sunglasses straps to keep your gear secure, and a waterproof cell phone case.

Shrimp Boat Restaurant

Are you in the mood to sit outside, have a nice cold cocktail, and watch the sun go down by the bright blue water and white sand beach? We think this is the best way to start off a romantic evening with your partner. Head to the infamous Shrimp Boat Restaurant for ice-cold and tasty drinks, mouth-watering food, and great service.

You can even save money when you head here for an unforgettable date night. Buy one and get one drink for free, so you can each enjoy a carefully crafted Mai Tai or margarita to your desires. We recommend splitting some of their tasty and huge appetizers with your significant other, like the shrimp and grits with breaded and fried shrimp, tuna tataki for a healthier choice, or different steak dishes for the main event.

Enjoy a Couple’s Massage

There is nothing more romantic than heading to the spa with your partner to get a couple’s massage, relax in the laid-back ambiance of the meditative spa, and get a facial with one another. You will leave feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to tackle the rest of your vacation.

We recommend getting a massage at one of the many spas right in town, like the Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa, Oasis Massage and Spa, Pure Massage and Spa, or My Massage Clinic. Try the Hand and Stone Swedish Massage, Himalayan Salt Massage, Hot Stone Massage, or Sports Massage to work out any stress in your muscles and relax.

The Swedish massage is a great choice for couples, offering the most common type of massage that really kneads into the knots in your muscles using long strokes and a variety of pressures.

Enjoy a Fine Dining Dinner

If you want somewhere very fancy for your Valentine’s Day dinner, then going to Firefly is your best bet. This upscale restaurant in Panama City Beach offers a fine dining experience with carefully crafted plates, strong cocktails, and a beautiful atmosphere that you won’t find in more laid-back establishments in this coastal town.

We recommend starting with the flash fried brussels sprouts with pancetta and spiced beans to split with the table. If you want something even more out of the ordinary, try the Escargot with parsley garlic butter, parmesan crumble, and grilled sourdough bread.

As a main dish, you can’t go wrong with any of the options. For seafood lovers, we recommend the Broiled Lobster Tails with whipped Yukon potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and drawn butter. If you are a steak lover, try the pepper-crusted stuffed filet mignon with roasted red potato hash, caramelized onions, and bacon.

Book Your Valentine’s Day Escape

As you can see, Panama City Beach is the ideal spot to reconnect with your loved one, spend quality time with one another, and have a romantic holiday. Use Vacations Perfected to book a spacious property to share with your significant other.
