Square Footage & Amenities Along Panama City Beach
Enjoy the space you would expect to find in a private home along with the amenities you would find at a resort in our Panama City Beach 3-bedroom vacation flats. In these spacious units, you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Square footage abounds in these roomy rentals, which boast a luxurious great room where you’ll be happy to spend your downtime. Traveling with multiple friends or family members makes having a kitchen on site even more essential, and the chef’s kitchens in these Panama City Beach vacation flats won’t disappoint. Keep hunger at bay with snacks and drinks on hand or enjoy full meals together around the dining table. In the adjacent living room, you’ll find comfortable furnishings, neutral colors with a touch of beach décor, and even views of the ocean in select flats.
A large group doesn’t have to mean a loss of sleep in these spacious accommodations! Our Panama City 3-bedroom vacation flats can accommodate anywhere from 6-12 guests, offering everyone room to spread out and catch up on rest. The master suite acts as a peaceful haven with a king bed and custom en suite bath. Many masters offer additional perks such as private balconies and ocean views as well! Be sure to browse each individual listing for room details to ensure you get the perfect setup for your travel party!
While some of our 3-bedroom vacation flats in Panama City Beach offer the privacy of a residential home, others are part of broader complexes that allow you to access additional perks and amenities. Both locations offer their own pros, from a private pool in your own backyard in a residential home to multiple pools and spa services in a resort complex.
Group Activities in Panama City Beach
Some destinations are perfectly suited for people of all ages, and the beach is one of them. Panama City Beach is an astounding 27 miles long, literally offering miles of options for fun. While some group members may prefer to find some shade and people watch or get lost in a good book, others may want to take a walk or jog along the shoreline. The crystal-clear waters offer a welcoming invitation for a refreshing swim, and you’ll find plenty of opportunities to build sandcastles and create sand art in the sugary white sand. For group members who enjoy water activities, consider picking up a mask, snorkel, and fins for some underwater exploration, or take the adrenaline up a notch by speeding over the water’s surface on a jet ski. No matter the age or interest, there’s always something to do along the Panama City Beach shoreline! And the best thing for groups is that while everyone can enjoy being in the same location, each group member can cater an activity to their own interests.
Another great place for a group outing is St. Andrew’s State Park. Situated on a peninsula, this stunning beach and protected nature area are often visited for the postcard-perfect views. There are plenty of water access points at St. Andrew’s State Park, which is bordered by the Gulf of Mexico, St. Andrew’s Pass, and the Grand Lagoon. Take a group walk along the nature trails in the park, catching sight of wildlife such as birds, deer, and possibly alligators. Bikes can also be rented from within the park, where roads looping through the preserve present a great alternative to busy streets. For groups who would enjoy water activities, kayaking, canoeing, and fishing are all possible from St. Andrew’s State Park. Near the jetties is a popular swimming area dubbed the “kiddie pool” due to its protection from larger waves. The calmer waters in this area offer the perfect spot for groups with children in the mix to swim safely and worry-free. The jetty rocks are also a great hiding place for marine wildlife, so this is a popular spot for snorkeling and scuba diving. With onsite restrooms and picnic pavilions, St. Andrew’s State Park is a great place for the whole group to spend the day picnicking, exploring the outdoors, and participating in the many onsite activities!
Group Dining in Panama City Beach
Dining out can be a challenge when traveling with a large group, but Panama City Beach is home to a wide range of restaurants that cater well to large parties. Though it certainly is an option, large-group dining doesn’t have to consist of carryout pizza when you stay in Panama City Beach! Consider calling ahead to one of these top-notch eateries during your family or group vacation in Panama City Beach.
Pineapple Willy’s is loved by both residents and visitors for its fun, lively atmosphere, abundant tropical drinks, and first-class location right along the ocean. Serving up fresh seafood and renowned ribs, the group should bring their appetite when dining at Pineapple Willy’s! The friendly staff at Pineapple Willy’s are happy to help accommodate large dining parties. Pineapple Willy’s is located right along Panama City Beach’s stunning white sand, with the dining areas perched on stilts above the sand in a true beachfront style. Offering sweeping views of the shoreline and ocean, your group will not only enjoy excellent food and atmosphere while at Pineapple Willy’s but also scenic views! As a mainstay in Panama City Beach for over 35 years, visiting this iconic eatery is a must. Order favorites such as po boys and seafood platters, with each member of the group choosing items to suit their tastes. Another option is to indulge in Pineapple Willy’s famed BBQ ribs, offered in 1-pound buckets perfect for sharing. Order several buckets of ribs to go around, and enjoy sides such as garlic toast, BBQ beans, and pineapple coleslaw. There are plenty of adult beverages over ice, frozen daiquiris, and draft beer to keep the drinks flowing throughout your meal!
Pompano Joe’s, located in Pier Park, is another hot spot for large group dining. Pompano Joe’s serves up fresh Gulf seafood with Caribbean flavors and is a great spot to try seafood gumbo if you’ve yet to taste this regional favorite. Sit indoors or enjoy the sunshine outside on the umbrella dotted upper deck. Pompano Joe’s offers both a fun atmosphere and excellent dishes served up in style. Choose among fresh seafood selections, sandwiches, soups, and salads. Start your meal out with a heaping basket of nachos, perfect for sharing. A favorite entrée for seafood lovers is the basket of coconut shrimp, cooked with just the right amount of crisp. After dinner, enjoy a group walk along the beach, with the pier conveniently located right across the street!
