Panama City Beach

World's Most Beautiful Beaches

Boasting 43 km (27 mi) of white sandy beaches and plenty of sunshine, Panama City Beach is an ideal choice for a relaxing holiday. Its inviting turquoise waters, with an average temperature of 22 C (72 F), are popular with swimmers and watersports enthusiasts, while fisherman and scuba divers enjoy reefs teeming with marine life. The town itself is less beautiful, but offers plenty of vacation amenities, such as malls, restaurants, and amusement arcades. The glorious beaches and lively nightlife attracts tourism from spring break vacationers. Our United States holiday planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in Panama City Beach

As a popular vacation destination, Panama City Beach has an abundance of accommodations. A beachfront hotel room or condo is the perfect base for a tranquil luxury vacation. Rooms with a balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico are in high demand. However, resorts and properties close to the shore are often expensive, and those on a budget should consider a motel farther from the beach.
