Planning a week-long beach vacation takes a lot of work leading up to your time away. You may need to find a reliable pet sitter, catch a flight, or map out a long road trip. With so much effort involved, you’re going to want something to show for it! Tan lines count, but for something more substantial, you may want to shop til’ you drop at a one-of-a-kind beach boutique. 

So, if you’re on the hunt for something small that won’t put your luggage over the weight limit, or you’re planning to load up the SUV with shopping-spree finds, PCB souvenir shops have you covered. You may even find something to thank your pet sitter! 

Mr. Surf’s Surf Shop 

The owners of this Christian-faith-centered shop created a unique place in PCB for connecting and catching waves. It’s also a great place to buy little reminders of your time at the beach. Mr. Surf’s Surf Shop features an art gallery filled with treasures from local artists and authors. 

The shop also features a wide selection of apparel, so you can pick up a T-shirt, hoodie, or hat to remember your vacay. It’s also a premier shop for all things related to boards — surfboards, paddleboards, skimboards, and skateboards. You can also pick up gear like wetsuits and more. 

Alvin’s Island

If you’ve ever been to PCB, you’ve likely seen the colorful façade at Alvin’s Island beckoning you to come in and explore. You can find everything you need for your stay at the beach, and we mean EVERYTHING. Plus, they have a wide selection of souvenirs perfect for you and your family and friends back home. 

Here you’ll find bathing suits from top brands, beach towels, suntan products, beach shoes, resort wear, beach toys, fun floats, colorful umbrellas, PCB T-shirts, and a large variety of souvenirs that go beyond shot glasses and coffee mugs — although they have those too! With multiple locations in PCB, they make it easy to find one-of-a-kind items!

Ron Jon Surf Shop

Pier Park’s premier surf shop is a fun place to shop for souvenirs and beach gear. Ron Jon Surf Shop is a world-famous surf emporium visited by beach lovers from around the globe – probably because it’s filled with a colossal selection of active lifestyle apparel and board sports equipment.

You’ll find a wide selection of sunglasses from top brands such as Oakley and Ray-Ban. Plus, swim and apparel for men, women, and kids, plus toys and games from beach volleyballs to cuddly plushies. Ron Jon has an impressive selection of GoPro cameras and accessories to capture video and share all your special memories. And you can never go wrong with tumblers and coolers! 

After some retail therapy, enjoy lunch or dinner at a Pier Park restaurant, like The Back Porch, along with a cocktail and majestic Gulf views. Then, catch a movie at the Grand IMAX Theater or check out the Russell-Fields Pier.


For a sun-sational shopping experience, stop in one of many Sunsations locations in PCB. Have a custom T-shirt made, browse what seems like a million souvenirs, or send a PCB postcard with a thoughtful note (Yes, they still do those!) If you’re looking for a new pet, Sunsations also has hermit crabs.

From shot glasses to sunglasses, Panama City Beach souvenir shops have an endless amount of treasures — except the buried kind. Whether you’re looking for a thoughtful gift or want to treat yourself, you’ll find lots of items at souvenir shops to remember your beach trip.
