Welcome to Unit A116 in the tower section of the Pinnacle Port Resort complex. Pinnacle Port is located in a gated community at the furthest west part of Panama City Beach, Florida. No where else in Panama City Beach will you find a resort on the beach and a lake on 26 acres of sand. This private, gated resort borders Camp Helen State Park to the west, Carillon Beach to the east, 800 acre Lake Powell to the north and the Gulf of Mexico to the south. We are close enough for daily activities in the busy areas of Panama City Beach, Panama City, Destin and Sandestin while remaining far enough off the beaten path to enjoy the seclusion and privacy that only Pinnacle Port can offer. Our beaches provide the most picturesque sunrises in the mornings and sunsets in the evenings. If one is lucky you may see the porpoise at play in the warm gulf waters. Families take long walks and many begin their life journey together on the white sands. The setting is absolutely serene.
In the winter, half of the pool is completely enclosed and the water is heated to a comfortable 82°. This pool sits on the Gulf so you can see and hear the waves. Music is played over the speakers during daylight hours. Concessions are available for a small fee. Just inside the main building, across from the men’s and women’s changing rooms are the men’s and women’s saunas. This area is open to all guests during the open pool hours. There is also a video arcade available for the youngsters.
Another exclusive amenity provided to our guests is a marina with a boat ramp and 14 boat slips. All of the boat slips have access to electrical outlets. Guests have the option to bring their boat, wave runners or jet skis with them. There is a small $10.00 per week trailer parking fee collected at the guard gate. A filleting station with a cutting board and a sink are provided for your convenience. If you're interested, you can even rent canoes, kayaks or a paddleboat for some great outdoor activities from the rental office next to the docks. They also provide paddles and life vests with your rental. Almost anything you can fish for in the Gulf of Mexico you can catch in Lake Powell. Florida fishing license requirements apply to the lake and gulf obtained at Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Stand on the pier and fish or watch from the lovely Gazebo.
The children’s playground is on the west end of property. This area gives the kids a little more to do if they are too small for other activities. The small pool is right in front of the playground. While the grown ups relax and rejuvenate the kids are entertained by the locomotive themed playground. The play ground offers a 6 station swing, a train, complete with a tunnel for games of hide-and-seek, a small climbing course, ideal for the little ones, along with a fun tube slide. Besides the play ground, the resort offers an exciting game room for the older kids, ideal for sending them off to play while you relax or play shuffleboard. Play volleyball or basketball on the courts beside the playground.
If tennis is your game come and play a set beside the water of beautiful Lake Powell. After spending some time at the beach head to the court for some volleying fun. If you are lucky, the part time resident bald eagle will make an appearance at the top of an old light pole just southwest of the courts. There are four courts that have lighting set on a timer. The fencing around the courts has a wind guard material. The court hours are 5 am to 11 pm. The lights will automatically shut off accordingly. During the winter season, many tournament and lessons are held on our tennis courts. At the rental office, you can put down a deposit and use our tennis rackets & tennis balls. See you on the court!
If you want to workout while on vacation, feel free to visit the fitness room. It comes complete with weights, cardio equipment & a view of the gulf that will distract even the fittest of visitors.
While some of the family are fishing others may decide to take a walk on the beautiful beach and soak up the sun while others play in the sand. What is so nice about this beach, it's not crowded like condos on the strip. Our condo borders Helen State Park to the west, so we have about 1/2 mile of open space(no buildings). If you get too warm, you can retreat to the large indoor/outdoor pool to relax in the shade and enjoy the pool. Another pool (outdoors) is located by the tennis courts.
Pier Park is located just 8 miles east on Hwy 98. Pier Park is a new shopping complex with major stores such as Dillard's, Target and many specialty shops; fine restaurants such as Long Horn Steak House, Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, Red Brick Pizza Oven,and many others.
