From deep sea to shore to freshwater fishing, Panama City Beach is an angler's paradise year round. And no visit to the Emerald Coast is complete without soaking up the sun or snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters of St. Andrew's Bay, Panama City Beach's own protected natural harbor. Hop aboard a specialty cruise and explore the Gulf of Mexico or practice your swing at one of the area golf courses. Less than two miles away is Pier Park, a mega-family entertainment and retail complex. This sprawling outdoor mall houses retail stores, unique boutiques, specialty shops and a wide variety of restaurants, including Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, Guglielmo's Italian Grill, Buffalo Wild Wings and Marble Slab Creamery, just to name a few.
