Outdoor Activities in Panama City Beach

Panama City Beach definitely provides an arena for fun in the Florida sunshine! The beach and resort pools are always the easiest option for enjoying time outdoors since they are literally at your doorstep at all of our Panama City Beach vacation rentals. But don’t stop there. As the “#3 Best Diving Location in North America” by Rodale’s Scuba Diving Magazine, the Gulf waters off Panama City Beach beckon exploration. Above-water sports abound all along the coast. Vacationers can try parasailing, boating, kayaking, wave running and so much more.

For calmer fun, what about looking for seashells by the seashore? Panama City Beach is minutes away from Shell Island, a natural, undeveloped island which lies between the Gulf of Mexico and St. Andrews Bay. Approximately seven miles long and anywhere from two hundred yards to three-quarters of a mile across, it is home to an abundance of shells, including sand dollars, moon snails, conch shells, and olive shells. They make for great souvenirs and mementos of your time at the beach.
