Recent Panama City Beach Area reviews

  • WONDERFUL!

    "My wife and I have now stayed at Aqua unit 808 twice and have booked the unit for two visits in 2015. Teresa is great to deal with and always does everything she says she will do. The unit is always updated and very clean and comfortable to stay in. The aqua is conveniently located to Pier Park and numerous shops and restaurants are only a short walk away. The sunsets from the balcony of this unit are memorable. We highly recommend!"

  • Best place ON THE BEACH!!!

    "My family and I just spent the best 4 days ever at PCB vacationing at Mariner West. This place is a true gem on the beach. It's exactly as described in the listing. Teresa, (the Owner), is such a pleasure to work with. We have already booked our next stay and can't wait to return. The condo is clean and very tastefully decorated. The community is quiet and safe and has great amenities to enjoy. Beach access is unbelievably close and the pool is right outside the patio door. LOVE THIS PLACE!!!"

  • Wonderful Experience

    "This was our families first trip to the Moonspinner, and it will not be our last!! The location of the condo is peaceful and beautiful. No need to fool with the hassle of traffic or crowds, unless you decided to venture out. Having the park and pier so close to the condo was an extra bonus. The condo was everything you see pictured and more! This condo is beautifully decorated and actually felt as if you were staying at the home of a friend and not a rented condo. No need to pack any extra kitchen essentials. The kitchen is fully set up for cooking and dining in on nights you don't want to leave the beach. Also, with traveling with a family, was the bonus of a large supply of towels and washcloths in each bathroom. I have actually had to go but some for other condos. The beds are all super comfy and have memory foam. Even with the beautiful beach outside, some mornings it was hard to get out of the bed! As for the owners, I am a very detailed person and I know I asked several questions, however he was very quick to respond and took the time to answer each and every question. I can honestly say in the seven years we have vacationed on the gulf, this was by far the best experience we have had and look forward to renting this condo again next summer!!"

  • BEST LOCATION!

    "First time to Panama City Beach. Didn't realize that the Calypso was right across the street from Pier Park - What a mall!! Condo was very clean and we enjoyed stay immensely. Eighth floor view of Gulf water was amazing."

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.
