Located on the West End

Preferred Location

Close to 30A

The older East-End of Panama City Beach is far more congested with traffic, and newer developments like Pier Park and the Airport are all taking place towards the West. The Sandpiper Beacon is the closest beachfront hotel to the Airport, and just over a mile west of Pier Park, making it a short-drive to all the action, but separate enough to be calm.

Constant Upgrades

Year-Round Improvements

Constant Upgrades and Improvements

We always strive to provide you with the best Panama City Beach vacation experience we can. Whether that means adding new activities and entertainment, offering free pool towels, or renovating the property and rooms. Each and every year, we reinvest back into the property to make sure your stay is always better than the last.
