Great area. The Beaches are clean and white. Security is good. No worries about safety on the Beach. Area is not always quiet. There are Helicopters that fly Tourists around. Planes with Banners behind them and Military Jets. Fun to watch but very noisy.

We love coming to the gulf coast for the white sand and beautiful water. I've visited the Atlantic and Pacific for vacations and they just don't stack up!

Stayed at the Celadon Beach Resort for a month, so was able to walk the beach often. I love the ocean, and this was so relaxing and enjoyable.

Panama City Beach is awesome. The water is clear, a beautiful blue. The white sand beach is clean. It's a wonderful, laid back place. I've been to all the panhandle beaches and Panama City Beach is definitely one of my favorites.

PCB May have had some minor damage on the east end closer to Panama City. However, Pier Park is on the west end of PCB and it suffered no damage. Because Panama City had extensive damage, there are many construction groups... More

In PCB, everything was pretty much back to normal. Plenty of restaurants, grocery stores, and gas. You can see evidence of the hurricane, but it’s mostly cleaned up.
