  • Great Stay

    "3 couples (young profesionals) had a great time. Able to use either pool and felt like we had the pool to ourselves. Plenty of good seafood restaurants short drive/cab away."

  • Perfect vacation rental!

    "The house is very spacious, in a great neighborhood, and a quick 8 to 10 minute walk to the beach. The owner is wonderful, very responsive and available if needed and was wonderful in getting our deposit back to us very quickly. We'll be back!! Very happy with the home, location and price! Highly recommend!"

  • Beautiful!!

    "This condo was absolutely beautiful, very clean and well-maintained. The furnishings were very upscale from the comfortable sofa and loveseat to the beds. Plenty of electronics (TVs, DVD/BluRay players, etc) and the free wifi was nice. Lots of seating space both inside and out. The patio was very relaxing and very well furnished. Although we did not use them, there were plenty of beach "toys", chairs and umbrellas. It was really nice having an assigned parking space, although getting in and out of the parking garage is a bit of a challenge with a Nissan Pathfinder, but doable. I would definitely recommend this condo to others, and will certainly keep it on my personal list of options for future trips. We are veteran PCB vacationers, and our favorite restaurants are Captain Anderson's and Angelo's Steak House, although both of these do close during the off season. Angelo's was closed this trip."

  • "Another" Perfect Vacation

    "Another wonderful stay at Gulf Crest. The weather was perfect and Eileen makes the entire process so easy. She's always there on site at check in time ensuring our condo is in top notch shape. We've been with Eileen and Gulf Crest the past 6 years and will be back again next year. I also need to mention the wonderful staff at Gulf Crest and the 24 hour security which is very important to me and my family. We always feel safe at GC."

Panama City Beach Area Travel Tips

The history of Panama City Beach goes back to the Native Americans who inhabited the land before the arrival of the British. It was also an important location in World War II and some of the cannon platforms can still be found along the shores.

Each spring, college students flock to Panama City Beach for a week of fun in the sun with thousands of their newest friends. Located in the Florida Panhandle, Panama City Beach sits along the Gulf of Mexico and largely depends on its natural surroundings to draw in tourists and keep the local economy going.

Must-see Attractions in Panama City Beach

St. Andrews State Recreation Area: St. Andrews State Recreation Area is one of Florida’s most popular places for outdoor recreation. It was rated the “No. 1 Beach in America” in 1995 and is known for the 1.5 miles of white sandy beaches, natural dunes and clear waters. Here, the beaches are easy to access and many are undeveloped. You’ll want to do it all with activities to explore such as snorkeling, diving, fishing and outdoor water sports.

Beaches: There are 27 miles of sand and surf to choose from in Panama City Beach, all of which include a different experience. If you want seclusion, head to Shell Island where there’s no development or access, except by boat. Visitors will find a quiet beach escape at Camp Helen State Park and it's only a short walk away from the water. Visitors can enjoy games of beach volleyball at Schooner’s Beach behind LaVela and Spinnaker where you can grab a bite to eat and a refreshing beverage without leaving the beach. The city also offers nearly 100 beach access points, so you won’t have to look hard to find a way to the sand. Children will love building sandcastles and the adults will enjoy a day of sunbathing with the occasional dip in the water.

Dive sites: Panama City Beach features 24 dive sites for the adventurous who want to go deep under the water and get a first-hand look at the world beneath the sea. You can choose from sites like 4 Army Tanks, Chippewa, Fountainbleau Boxcars, Grey Ghost, Liberty Ship, Sherman Tug, The Black Bart and USS Strength.

Zoos: If you’re bringing the kids along for the fun, check out Gulf World Marine Park and the ZooWorld Zoological and Botanical Park. These attractions are full of marine animals and typical zoo creatures.

Man in the Sea Museum: Learn more about the old ways of deep sea exploration at the Man in the Sea Museum. There are written records, diagrams and drawings to help show what life was like for those who spent their lives below the surface in search of sea life and underwater habitats.

Shopping and Dining in Panama City Beach

Shopping in Panama City Beach: There’s no shame in taking a break from the beach to enjoy a day of retail therapy. There are boutiques that line the streets of Panama City beach as well as open-air malls near the coastline. If you want an unique souvenir to bring home, stop by speciality shops such as Pieces and Blue Heron Fine Gifts. The city’s speciality shops also feature handmade jewelry as well as antiques, collectibles and traditional beachy treats. Beach House Market is home to more than 20 vendors who sell sea-inspired gifts. Visitors to the city shouldn’t leave without shopping at Pier Park. Although it doesn’t quite fit the description of a mall, Pier Park has more than 1 million feet full of local favorites and big-name stores for you to shop until you drop.

Dining in Panama City Beach: You don’t even need to leave the beach to grab a bite to eat. Some of the best views in the city are at restaurants lining the coast. Many of the eateries offer open-air casual dining while you watch the sun set and fishermen head back in from a day at sea. Many diners go for the chargrilled grouper or the fresh Apalachicola oysters. If you aren’t a fan of seafood, don’t worry because Southern barbecue, steak and pulled pork options are also available.
