Beautiful public white sandy beaches for miles in Panama city. Accessible from anywhere within the city on foot. Animals are allowed, there are many of them! February 2015 is too cold for swimming unless you wear a body suit, but you can lounge and walk great distances. The beach is cleaned daily. Very pleasant.

The beaches in PCB are fabulous. They are basically the same for about 100 miles in both directions, so you can't go to the wrong place in this area. The sand is very white. The water is emerald, hence the name Emerald Beach. When the waves have been large with a storm or high winds, the water can get a... More

Sugar sand .... beautiful. Too cold for us to enjoy the beach, but would like to go when it is warmer.

We went before spring break and had a blast. Don't rent from Resort Collection. They ended up charging us an extra charge on our credit card without our permission and no proof of damages. We checked out by their rental list to the letter.Otherwise the trip was perfect. Once they have your credit card number apparantly they can continue to... More

Fine white sand. Very clean water. Stayed between the two piers for most of two weeks. Surf breaks closer to shore and quite hard. Looks as though the shelf drops faster here than the east coast. Walking barefoot is a different feel. Sand texture can make one's northern feet a bit red until they toughen. Well maintained. Small shells. Dolphins... More

Although we were are here in late February it normally in the high 60's unfortunately it is much cooler, around 45 to 60. The gulf is a beautiful sight to see especialy when it has large waves. The sand is very fine and very white. Even though it has been cool we have taken a couple of walks on the... More

I just loved the beach and the beautiful white sand. We stayed for the month of February and even though there were some cooler days, we were able to walk by the beach and get our feet wet. Our condo was facing the beach and it was delightful to watch the different moods of the ocean. In the afternoon on... More

This beach goes on forever it seems. We were here in Feb. and some days were pretty cold to be walking on the beach. The sand is like sugar and the beach is very clean.

This beach is one of our favorites. I love how serious the town takes its warning flag system. I've been to other beaches and am never so aware of beach flags.

I loved the beach and the fine sand. Too bad we came mid February and it was too cold to even walk most of the days. We stayed 8 days. Temperature went to 28 degrees fahrenheit couple of nights. We expected Panama city to be warmer then Vancouver BC where we travelled from.
