Panama City Beach is known for its waterfront restaurants that serve up fresh local seafood whilst you enjoy stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico and its dramatic sunsets.
With 27 miles of white sand beaches, the crystal clear turquoise waters here are known for their artificial reefs and historic shipwrecks; making them an ideal place to scuba dive. Shell Island, in St. Andrews State Park, is a pristine 700 acre undeveloped barrier island, across the channel from the mainland, that provides the ultimate opportunity to relax and unwind.
Fishing is a popular activity in Panama City Beach, and the town's twin piers, among the longest on the Gulf coast, provide an ideal platform for anglers. The region is also a bird watcher's delight; with a great variety of birds seen year-round. In addition, it boasts one of the highest concentrations of bottlenose dolphins in the world.
