About this beach

Warnings and hazards

Watch out for jellyfish (especially in winter - lots of it!)

Be aware of rip currents - no lifeguards on duty here!

Make sure you are parking properly and not in the bike lane.

If you're a pet owner, use access points 56, 57, and 58 that lead to the pet-friendly section of the beach west of the pier 🐶

Loved by families as well as youth, Panama City Beach is free and accessible to everyone. Powder-white sand and crystal clear water - PCB is a must-visit from May to late September. 

Parking is free, but make sure you are leaving your car in a proper place because you probably don’t need another ticket.

Food and amenities

The variety of food and snack options to pick from is infinite. Restaurants range from casual to upscale. Lots of partying going on even in winter and many events have free entrance. The beach is well-maintained. Nets in place for volleyball enthusiasts. All kinds of entertainment and gear for you to rent - from jetski to beach wheelchairs (did you even know these exist?). 

Places to stay

Plenty of beach-view condos for rent across the street, but make sure to book in advance, because they go like hot cakes! Check out our map below for some available options. 

Fishing pier access

Make time to take a few pictures on the pier ($3 entrance) and watch the sunset with your loved ones. Note that our map below is pointing at the pier's exact location. 


A great place to spend your vacation – long or short. The only thing that kept bothering me was the amount of cigarette butts scattered all around the place.

If you are planning out a family vacation, make sure your schedule does not overlap with any of the crazy spring break parties. A great number of lodging options are available - look for condos across the street from the beach with a view.

Visitor questions:

Question: PCB public access #94. Do you know if umbrella and chair rentals are available? Traveling with young kids 7 yr and 5 yr so looking for friendly beach atmosphere, safe and with kids entertainment.
Asked by Jenn about 3 years ago
Answer: Beach Access #94 is located near Sandstorm Lane and features neither umbrella and chair rentals, nor kids' entertainment facilities. Yet this is a beloved place for many families because in this remote part of the beach there are not as many people as near the pier, and you can spend a relaxed beach day with kids. Also, the water is shallow, and the sand is clean and soft for kids to play with.
