Recent Panama City Beach Area reviews

  • Wonderful!

    "This condo was perfect for our family. I love that even in peak season we never had any trouble finding a spot on the beach. Looking down the beach and seeing how crowded it was at other locations made me realize how glad I am that we chose this place. One night we actually saw deer on the beach from our balcony. We never had to wait on elevators or search for parking spots. You really appreciate things like that when you book during peak season!!! The owners of Beach Path were amazing to deal with. I will be a repeat customer! I'm already thinking about next year!"

  • Updated and well cared for retreat!

    "My partner and I stayed in this unit in April (It was either the second or third week in April) and were so pleased with the quality of the work that has been done on the condo. The complex is in a lovely spot on the beach and we enjoyed the clean beaches and the clean pools. Pelican Walk is a great building but the units are hit-and-miss due to age and wear. This one is tops on our list! Great value, easy management and wonderful sunsets. A++"

  • Little piece of Heaven

    "We have been coming down to the Boardwalk Beach Resort for the last 9 years & I have to say that this is one of the nicest condo's we have stayed in. Everything was very clean & nicely decorated! The view from the balcony & bedroom is amazing! I think we have found our home away from home! Thanks so much Stefanie & Joe for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!"

  • Worked out Great!

    "Super close to the beach-the walkover is right across the street. You have a beach view, albeit obstructed from the upstairs balcony. Love Shack is the guest house for the main house, Rock Lobster. There is a small pool, right outside the bedrooms, and it is great!!! Very cool. Travelled with my wife, our two teenage children, and each had a friend. Two Bunkrooms(one is just off downstairs hallway and one upstairs). Nice water pressure on the showers. The neighborhood is fantastic. Safe, quiet(although there was quite a bit of construction), beautiful houses, excellent beach. WiFi signal is weak, but that seems to be the story of my life! This was our second time to rent a house in Carillon and would do the Love Shack again."

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.
