Discovering Panama City Beach’s Beaches

Panama City Beach is renowned for its breathtaking beaches, and with over 27 miles of sugar-white sand, there’s no shortage of shoreline to explore. Whether you prefer the lively atmosphere of popular spots like Pier Park or the tranquility of secluded stretches like St. Andrews State Park, you’ll find the perfect spot to soak up the sun and dip your toes in the Gulf of Mexico’s warm waters. Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen, beach towels, and a good book for a day of relaxation and bliss.

Exploring Natural Wonders

Beyond its pristine beaches, Panama City Beach is home to a wealth of natural wonders waiting to be explored. Embark on a thrilling eco-adventure at Shell Island, a pristine barrier island accessible only by boat, where you can encounter dolphins, spot nesting shorebirds, and collect seashells along deserted shores. For a dose of adrenaline, head to Camp Helen State Park and soar through the treetops on a zipline adventure, or hike the trails of Conservation Park, a vast sanctuary teeming with native wildlife and scenic beauty.

Indulging in Fresh Seafood and Coastal Cuisine:

No summer getaway to Panama City Beach is complete without savoring the flavors of the Gulf Coast’s freshest seafood. From casual beachfront cafes to upscale waterfront restaurants, the dining scene here is a seafood lover’s paradise. Feast on succulent shrimp, buttery lobster, and freshly shucked oysters, or sample local specialties like grouper sandwiches and seafood gumbo. Wash it all down with a refreshing cocktail or ice-cold beer as you enjoy panoramic views of the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico.

Partaking in Water Sports and Activities

For thrill-seekers and water enthusiasts, Panama City Beach offers a plethora of aquatic adventures to enjoy. Rent a jet ski and zoom across the waves, or try your hand at stand-up paddleboarding for a fun and challenging workout. Experience the thrill of parasailing as you soar high above the Gulf, taking in panoramic views of the coastline and sparkling waters below. Snorkeling and diving enthusiasts will delight in exploring the area’s vibrant underwater ecosystems, teeming with colorful marine life and fascinating shipwrecks.

Exploring Local Attractions and Entertainment

In addition to its natural beauty and outdoor adventures, Panama City Beach boasts an array of attractions and entertainment options to suit every taste. Take a stroll along the bustling boardwalk at Pier Park, where you’ll find an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues. Discover the wonders of the sea at Gulf World Marine Park, where you can interact with dolphins, sea lions, and stingrays, or catch a live show featuring talented aquatic performers. For a taste of local culture, explore the galleries and studios of the Panama City Center for the Arts, or catch a live concert or festival at Aaron Bessant Park.

Planning Your Stay

When it comes to accommodations, Panama City Beach offers a diverse array of options to suit every budget and preference. Choose from beachfront resorts, cozy condos, and charming beach cottages, each offering its own unique amenities and atmosphere. Whether you’re seeking a luxurious retreat with spa services and oceanfront dining or a budget-friendly motel within walking distance of the beach, you’ll find the perfect place to stay in Panama City Beach.

Hit the Beach

Of course, if you’re going to Florida for vacation, chances are hitting the beach is at the top of the list. Luckily for you, there are numerous beaches in Panama City Beach that you can go to, which are great for spending time with your friends, playing games with your kids, running into the waves, or building sandcastles.

We love going to any section of Panama City Beach to find a great spot to set up an umbrella, unfold the chairs, lay out the blanket, and get ready to have our lunch picnic. You can choose from more than 27 miles of white sand to relax, take a nap, hop in the water, or read a book. Spending a lovely afternoon walking along the beach and getting a tan is a must-do over a holiday weekend.

Hop in the Water

After a few hours of lying down on the beach, you might be a bit hot. Of course! The sun in Florida is strong, and you are here in the middle of summer. Cool down by hopping into the water, surfing in the crashing waves, or teaching your kids how to swim. You can do numerous watersports in PCB that are fun for adrenaline-lovers or those who just want to float in the bright blue water.

We recommend jet skiing if you want to feel the breeze through your face and go at high speeds. If you would rather try something a bit more laid back, you can do stand-up paddleboarding, test your balance, and get in a good workout. You can have a healthy and wholesome vacation without derailing your fitness plan!

Take a Trip to Shell Island

Shell Island is fun to check out every time of the year, but coming here over the holiday weekend is a great way to see the lesser-visited island, escape the crowds, and partake in some exciting water sports. Your kids will love taking the private pontoon boat to this special island and then choosing what type of sports to do once you get here.

We recommend going snorkeling to see the bright reef, taking a picnic to sit outside and enjoy a nice alfresco lunch with your family, or swimming underwater to see if you can keep an eye out for the beautiful marine life that lives here.

Go for a Hike in St. Andrews State Park

There are so many fun outdoor activities to do in PCB that it can be hard to narrow down the fun things to do in just one weekend, but we think that heading to St. Andrews State Park to go for a nice hike, walk, or bike ride is a must-do to escape the crowds at the beach. St. Andrew’s State Park is a fantastic spot to cool off under the trees, rent kayaks or paddle boards to go in the bright blue water, and swim along the coastline.

Have a Filling Breakfast

If you are in PCB for vacation, chances are you want to splurge a little bit and go out to breakfast so you don’t have to cook or worry about making a huge pot of coffee for your guests over the holiday weekend. We love going to some of the best breakfast joints and casual coffee spots in PCB to enjoy a fun morning out on the town.

First, you need to try Jesse’s Place if you’re in the mood for a laid-back atmosphere, family-owned spot, and traditional American food that will curb every carving you have. Unsure what to get from the expansive menu? You can’t go wrong with one of the breakfast specials, like the biscuits and sausage gravy or the patty melt, smothered with cheddar cheese and grilled onions on thick Texas toast.

Next, if you would rather have a sweet treat to start the day, Thomas Donut and Snack Shop is a must-visit—especially if you have kids! We love coming here in the morning to the bright white and blue building that is very quintessential of a beach restaurant. You can come here at any time of the day to get a sweet pastry, pizza, chili dogs, burgers and fries, or bagel sandwiches.

However, we think that getting a donut is an absolute must. But of course, you can get a savory meal first to start the day in a healthy manner. Try one of the infamous kolaches, like the jalapeno smoked sausage and cheese, before exploring their expansive donut menu. You can go simple, like a blueberry or chocolate cream-filled donut, or try a ‘fancy’ donut, like the cinnamon bun or cream-filled chocolate glazed.

Panama City Coffee Co.

If you’re in need of a midday pick me up, or you want to start your day off with an espresso-laden iced coffee before heading to another beach, Panama City Coffee Co. truck is your best bet. This cute and cozy truck not only has outside seating but offers a full menu for you to choose from that will start your day off on a healthy and energized foot.

For the first-time visitor, we absolutely recommend getting the cold brew iced coffee or the nitro cold brew if you need a little extra pep in your step. For non-coffee drinkers, don’t fret – the chai latte and matcha are truly sensational. If you are in the mood to try one of the signature creations that have made them so well-known over the years, the spicy vanilla honey latte and chocolate lavender latte are healthy, sweet, and unique.

During a hot summer day, we can’t think of anything better than a Frappuccino. The caramel mocha Frappuccino paired with an egg, ham, and cheese bagel is the ideal lunch while you are sitting outside on the beach.

Soo Trucking Delicious

Soo Trucking Delicious is a burger truck that turns out tasty burgers, hearty sides, and mouthwatering plates that you won’t find in most food trucks. This “chef-driven” fast food features adventurous new plates, comfort food, catering possibilities, and an extensive menu to work for even the pickiest of eaters. We love the Cajun fries and truffle fries as appetizers to warm up your palette and split with your mates.

For a main dish, you can’t go wrong with one of the infamous burgers, veggie burgers with awesome sauce, chicken sandwich with herb mayonnaise, or tacos with tons of vegetables, sauce, salsa, and corn tortillas.

Jaa’s Kitchen

Jaa’s Kitchen is a well-known spot that turns out traditional Jamaican food right in the heart of the coastal area of Florida, featuring homemade juices, savory meat, fresh vegetables, tasty snacks, and colorful food that will make you happy while you are eating it.

Head here in the morning before 12 pm to try one of their breakfast dishes, like the stew chicken, curry chicken, ackee and saltfish, or okra and saltfish. Other main dishes are chicken and waffles, reggae sunshine omelette with cheddar cheese and home-fried potatoes, and breakfast quesadillas with sausage, bacon, and salsa.

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.

When you think of Thanksgiving, sometimes you think of cold weather, crowded restaurants, and bringing turkey in your very own oven. But we can help remedy all of these issues with a better idea in mind. Instead of spending your hard-earned miles and flight points on a trip to the ever-cold New York City or overpriced Europe, why not go somewhere tropical where you can enjoy the warm weather, sunny skies, and fresh food you won’t find in traditional American restaurants?

That’s right, it is time to head to the Sunshine State this November! We know that it can get too crowded in the summer months in Florida and too cold in the winter, so the fall is the best time to lay out on the beach, walk along the boardwalk, and explore the cities.

Check out Panama City Beach, a bustling and beautiful coastal city that offers pristine views of the ocean, mouthwatering seafood restaurants, and fun activities for you to do at any time of the day.

For just $35, you can have an all-you-can-eat buffet that will be one of the highlights of your holiday trip.

Put on your dancing shoes and your best outfit, and head to Schooner’s to dance the night away to live music and upbeat tunes. You can even enjoy sweet treats like s’mores and a few drinks in the moonlight.

After celebrating for a few days and enjoying a hearty meal with your family, we recommend going to PCB to kick off the following days of the holiday weekend at Aaron Bessant Park. The ‘Beach Home for the Holidays’ event on November 23 and November 24 offers a campfire, Christmas village, s’mores, and live music that will really get you in the holiday spirit.

Every parent and their child will get to decorate three cookies and choose from a wide variety of icing colors, sprinkles, and tools to use to make their cookie truly one of a kind.

Walking Around the Historic District

Although you can do this all year round, we think the fall is one of the best times for you to get outside, enjoy the crisp fall breeze, weave your way through the beautiful streets, and sip on a coffee as you marvel at the gift shops, vintage stores, souvenir stalls, and everything in between. Once you are done shopping, wander around the Historic District to see the old-style buildings, ‘Old World’ Florida vibe that still exist today, and cool architecture.
