Panama City Beach, Panama City Beach

Panama City Beach 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. Plan a Panama City Beach trip in moments using our itinerary builder.
