Each year, the Sandpiper Beacon is "committed to providing you with the ultimate Emerald Coast Cruizin' Car Show experience."
From premium front-row, street-side parking letting you show off your ride, to top-quality live entertainment and drink specials in our tropical beachside Tiki Bar. Come and witness dozens of stunning classic cars which gleam with polished chrome, hot custom paint, and the deep rumble of horse power all week long!
Each night during the Emerald Coast Cruizin' Car Show we invite you to join us and enjoy all the activities and entertainment on offer. Listen to great live bands playing right here in the Tiki Bar, and take part in the cruises and parades along Panama City Beach.
Just because the Emerald Coast Cruizin' Car Show is all about the cars, doesn't mean we can't give you top quality live bands too. Free live entertainment - everyone welcome!
Guests of the Sandpiper can show off their rides front & center, taking pride of place. Admire decades of American automotive history lining the front of the Hotel. Don't hide your cars in a parking garage - show them off with pride!
THE place to kick back and relax during the car show has always been the Sandpiper Beacon's main stage in the Tiki Bar. Everybody is welcome to come and enjoy incredible live performances by some of the best bands on the beach. Incredible drink specials, and no cover... ever!
We have convenient Ground-Floor rooms, as well as a HUGE choice of rooms and suites, which can all be customized to suit your needs, and budget. Ask about our waterfront rooms or street-view rooms...
The Sandpiper Beacon is the closest beachfront Hotel to the official venue of the Emerald Coast Cruizin' Car Show. The Sandpiper Beacon is just a short 5-minute drive away from all the action at Frank Brown Park.
