There’s much more to Florida than Orlando and Miami.  The beaches on the west coast of the state are on the Gulf of Mexico and many of them win awards every year as some of the best in the world.

One of the tour operators we deal with has nominated Panama City Beach as their destination of the month.  Do you know it?  If no, its worth finding out about.

Located in north west Florida, closer to Alabama than Orlando.  27 miles of beautiful beaches await your bucket, spade and towels.

But it’s more than this –

Meet Roux, a rescued baby bottle-nosed dolphin, at Gulf World Marine Park and learn about their rehabilitation programme of Gulf marine life.

Bike through the winding paths of Panama City Beach’s Conservation Park and enjoy a scenic picnic overlooking the protected wetlands.

Shop the boutiques at Pier Park and reward the kids with an ice cream and rides at the adjacent Miracle Strip amusement area.

Make a splash at Shipwreck Island Water Park on its Pirates Plunge attraction or the 65 foot Tree Drop, then relax and take in the sunshine on the Lazy River.

Cast a line off the Russell Fields Pier or its twin M.B. Miller Pier for Spanish mackerel or flounder.

Dive for treasure in Panama City Beach’s natural or artificial reefs.

Visit Heron Pond nature trail at St. Andrews state park to bird watch for Snowy Egrets, Great Egrets, Blue Herons and Little Blue Herons and spot White Tailed deer or the occasional alligator.

Check out the Aaron Bessant Park Amphitheatre, located in the heart of Panama City Beach, where you can enjoy the sounds of many local and international bands.
