[+] Lower Rates

Just like any other vacation destination, when the peak summer season finishes, rates continue to drop as the year comes to an end. Hotels and Condos in Panama City Beach all start offering tempting rates to try to encourage you to make one extra trip to the beach before next year. If you shop around a little, you can find some amazing deals.

[+] FREE Nights (Yep – FREE!)panama-city-beach-3

Some hotels, like the Sandpiper Beacon, also offer FREE nights to guests with extended stays. The only thing better than a beach vacation, is a free beach vacation! (Well, partially free at least). Some of the FREE night specials the Sandpiper offers include Pay 2 stay 3, pay 3 stay 4, and pay 5 stay 7!

[+] Less Crowded

It’s not just the financial incentives that make this the perfect time of year to visit Panama City Beach. The Summer season is typically busiest because that’s when many School’s are out, and families can take time off work to make a beach vacation possible. So, when the School’s are back, the beaches are much less crowded – giving you your own slice of paradise to enjoy all to yourself!

[+] Warm Weather panama-city-beach-4

It’s always been known as the local’s favorite time of the year… With all the beautiful warm sunshine Panama City Beach is known for, but cooler than it gets during the height of the summer season. It’s just perfect!

[+] Less Humid

Sunshine is great, and an essential ingredient in any beach vacation – but most people would agree that the humidity can be a downside. Well, if you’re visiting during the value season, the humidity is gone along with the crowds. So lay back in your hammock, and feel the cool breeze and warm sunshine on your skin.

[+] Things To Do

If you’ve ever stayed at the Sandpiper Beacon before, you know how much there is to do without having to leave the hotel… ever! From the large beachside Tiki Bar, indoor (seasonally heated) lazy river ride, indoor and outdoor pools, hot tub, waterslides, mini golf, arcade game room, grocery store, beach deli, and much more… There’s no reason to put your vacation on hold whenever you’re looking for fun things to do. Well that doesn’t stop during the value season. It’s the perfect overlap of lower rates and a full entertainment schedule.

[+] Polynesian Fire Dancing Show! panama-city-beach-6

For the first time ever, this year (2012) the Sandpiper Beacon is also extending the run of the authentic Polynesian Fire Dancing Show, which is free to all registered guests. Typically you’d only be able to catch this incredible live show if you stayed during the height of the Summer season.
