Beach at Panama City is actually part of Panama City Beach, a separate municipality from the older, more inland Panama City municipality. The beach area is a popular spring break destination, with hundreds of thousands of visitors--most of them college students--flocking here. However, you can appreciate the white sand beaches, clear waters, and the atmosphere of the town any time of year. While there, check out the city's two shopping centers--Pier Park is the closest to the beach.

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.
