Here's a few reasons to visit the Real. Fun. Beach.

Fresh Eats

We have tons of great places for fresh seafood, even in the winter.

Rest and Relaxation

It's no secret that 2020 was a crazy year, so no one would blame you for wanting to start your 2021 year off with nothing but peace and quiet. While visiting Panama City Beach, you have 27 miles of white sand beaches to choose from for relaxing and listening to nothing but the peaceful sound of the waves lapping the shore. If you're looking to be pampered, we offer a variety of spas like Serenity Spa at Sheraton PCB Golf & Spa Resort or Sugar Bliss Spa.

Real. Fun. Fitness.

If your New Year's resolution is to be more active, you're not alone. In our opinion, the beach is one of the best places to kickstart your fitness journey. There's nothing like taking a walk or run down the beach as the sun rises or sets. If you'd rather take a class, we have many different ways to get fit while still having fun. Studio by the Sea has beach yoga classes for those wanting to switch up their usual yoga routine. They also have a variety of dance classes. There's also many gyms available in the area, either at your resort or around Panama City Beach.
