On the western edge of Panama City Beach, nestled off the road in a gated community is Pinnacle Port. The ultimate family destination at Carillon Beach is packed with every amenity needed. Pinnacle Port Resort is perfectly situated on a peninsula with white sandy beaches and the Gulf of Mexico on one side and beautiful 800 acre Lake Powell on the other side. Pinnacle Port is described as a “quiet corner of the world” because it is free from the hubbub, marred traffic and noise of other locations, yet accessibly close to all the attractions of Panama City Beach.
Entrance to the 23 acre Pinnacle Port property is gained through a continuously manned security gate. You will also appreciate that the Pinnacle Port Property has roving property patrols on duty 24 hours every day.
The beach at Pinnacle Port is everything a good beach should be. Step out the back door of the Tower and you are immediately on the beach, where the sugar white sand invites you to sit enjoy the ocean view, the relaxing sound of the waves lapping against the shore, the captivating sunrises, glorious sunsets and the invigorating walks on the beach with all the pleasure that it brings.
Step out the front door of the tower and see a pier and boat dock located just beyond a lovely gazebo on beautiful Lake Powell. There are paddle boats, kayaks and canoes available for rent at the business office. You may want to bring your fishing gear and wet a hook from the pier or launch your boat at the boat ramp. Boat parking is available until you are ready to launch. In the cool of the evening for a change of pace you may choose to take an easy walk to nearby Carillon Beach and enjoy the live concerts on the green. Everything you could want for a fun filled vacation.
Pinnacle Port is family centered. There are four lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, basketball courts, horseshoes, two swimming pools and a children’s playground. All of these outdoor amenities beckon your use. In addition to these, you will also find a picnic pavilion with barbeque grills. Additional barbeque grills are found in other locations on the property.
The ground floor of the Tower is the location for indoor amenities and activities. The indoor portion of the large pool is in one wing of the Tower. You are also welcome to use the newly refurbished and equipped exercise room, separate saunas for men and women, a sitting area with comfortable couches and chairs and there card and game tables as well.
Should you want to explore opportunities away from Pinnacle Port, take a drive to Pier Park, only a short distance away. This recently developed center is designed to create an exciting shopping and dining experience.
Go a little further to the east and you will find Gulf World water park where you will be amazed and entertained watching the dolphins perform and sometimes even an opportunity to swim with the dolphins. Water sports and activities abound in the area. You name it and you can get it, from fishing excursion, wave runner, snorkeling, or a boat ride over to shell island. Then there are go kart tracks, mini golf and full golf courses, and exceptional restaurants.
On another day head west for a short drive down scenic 30A and you will find exclusive homes, shopping that is incredible and dining that is first class. But wait, Destin is just a hop skip and a jump away where you can find shopping in 3 different outside malls, a Bass Pro shop and wherever you may go you will find dining opportunities catered to please even the most sensitive palate. If you are a bicycle enthusiast you will find incredible paved bike path are waiting, all just minutes away.

Year Purchased: 1984
About the owner: My wife and I bought our condo in 1984 after vacationing here for several years. Interestingly enough, my wife remembers coming to this very area before there was a Pinnacle Port with her father and they went crabbing in what is now Lake Powell. Our four children grew up coming to Pinnacle Port and loving it. Now their kids are doing so as well. It has been an integral part of our lives for nearly three decades stretching over three generations.
Why the Owner Chose Pinnacle Port: To use the real estate expression, it is “location, location, location. You just can't get any closer to the beach than this. I think a better or more beautiful location cannot be found with the gulf out the door right onto the beach on one side of the building and out the door on the other side to Lake Powell. My wife always felt secure here and we always felt that it was safe place for our kids and now our grandkids to be and play. It is family centered with terrific visual appeal and offers a vast array of amenities.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The property is a half mile away from the noisy busy traffic. The Pinnacle Port beach is longer than any to be found in the area and the property is bordered on the east by very upscale detached houses and a small state park on the west, separated by Phillips Inlet. In a sense we are cloistered and at the same time essential services and conveniences are nearby.
