“Beautiful Beach, better than Myrtle Beach, SC”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

I go to myrtle beach a lot because it is close. This beach is so much nicer and the sand is so soft and white, and the water is so clear! Its like being in the bahamas, but not so far to travel!

Highly recommend this to any beach lover!

“comforting”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The beaches in Panama City are comforting and exciting all at the same time. There are vendors with lounges and water gear available for enjoying the sand, sun and just hanging out. Enjoyed my time although usually very crowded so get out early to stake your spot.

“One of the most beautiful beaches”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Panama City Beach has something for everyone. Even the beach is divided into sections. Thomas Drive area is great for the younger parting crowd, because it is close to the clubs, bars, restaurants, shops, etc. Area of beach from Walmart to Pier Park on Front Beach Road is good for people that like to walk to shops and restaurants and want a lot to do close by on both sides (beach and street). Once you get past Pier Park and toward what is considered the west end of the beach, it slows down and gets quiet. The partiers don't hang out on the west end and there are more families vacationing there. The sand is soft and cool. Most of the time the water is beautiful. I would even consider it a pretty safe tourist town.

“Good for the soul!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

I have been here many times and intend to continue the trip. The beach is absolutely pristine, the sand like pure sugar, and the water a beautiful emerald green. This time the water was still cool, but my 12 year old neice was ok with that. Spring Breakers stay pretty much to the east end of the beach, so the west end is my choice. Extremely peaceful! Beats the east coast beaches hands down!!
