  • Family Dream Vacation and More

    "When looking for a unit to rent in the Spring, I found Splash and was excited by all the fun family activities it offered. Then I began searching for the unit to rent. Our family is my husband and I and our two children, 4 years and 18 months. How do you decide which unit to rent? I read the reviews and this unit and the owners have received great review after great review. We chose our week and started the countdown! The unit was incredibly clean and the owner was available when we checked in to answer questions and help me learn the TV system - Cable, Netflix and a Blu-Ray DVD player. Access to the unit by the lock-code system was very user friendly. To stress again, the condo was well decorated and extremely clean - cleaner than any other rental I have ever stayed in - anywhere, ever. I cannot give enough credit to Willie and his wife to the condition of the condo and the effort that is obviously taken to care for the unit. As we are a family with a baby that still crawls a little, spends a good bit of time on the floor and that has to spend a good bit of time inside for naps, etc, this is so appreciated. As far as the resort. What a joy to be there. With young kids, if they are happy and having fun then we are happy and having fun. We kept busy between the beach, the splash pad, the lazy river, the kid's water park and the pool. And to be surrounded by other families that were vacationing to enjoy time with their kids - the atmosphere was perfect. My only complaint is that we had to come home! We hope to visit next summer again!"

  • One of the best

    "We have been vacationing in PC for 30 years. This was one of the nicest units we have been in. Decor was excellent, the bed was one of the most comfortable we've slept on. The chairs included with the unit were a great bonus. Everything is on site. I would recommend this rental to anyone going to PC for a vacation."

  • Dunes of Panama

    "We stayed in this condo for a week! It is absolutely wonderful to bring our lab with us and stay in such an amazing place! We spent so much time out on the balcony looking out at the ocean eating breakfast, relaxing and always ended up there at the end of the evening before heading to bed! The amenities and the condition of the unit were just as described and the photos were accurate. The beach was beautiful and only a short walking distance away. The outdoor pool was inviting and well maintained, as were the grounds! The location is perfect for touring, shopping, and many places to choose from for eating out. We are hoping to stay here again and again! Tony and his wife were amazing to deal with considering our situation! They couldn’t have been more helpful! Thank you again for letting us stay in you condo!"

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.
