The Sandpiper Beacon Hotel-Resort & Tiki Bar is the ORIGINAL Biker Headquarters of the Thunder Beach Motorcycle Rally in Panama City Beach, Florida!
We are also the only OFFICIAL Thunder Beach business sponsor to offer both lodging AND PREMIUM entertainment during the entire Thunder Beach motorcycle rally.
We are proud of our reputation for having the best bands on the beach. So whether you STAY Here & PLAY Here, or just come to play in the Tiki Bar, you're gonna have a good time! Never a Cover & Everybody Welcome!
Bikers flock to the Sandpiper Tiki Bar each year for the ULTIMATE Thunder Beach entertainment experience. With a reputation for having the best bands on the beach during bike week, EVERYONE is invited to this party! Plenty of parking, drink specials, and NO cover... ever!
Party responsibly during Thunder Beach at the only Resort Hotel with a Tiki Bar on the property! Bikers who stay here & play here stay safe. Don't worry if you fill your tank up a little too much - your room is always just a short walk away...
A popular Sandpiper Thunder Beach tradition to show our appreciation, and say "Thank You" to all our registered hotel guests. Join us for a FREE BBQ COOKOUT (and beer) with an awesome band playing right on the beach.
Not many hotels can offer bikers so much street-side / front-row parking. The Sandpiper has biker parking along the entire length of the Hotel, as well as lots of extra (convenient) parking lots across the street. We also have some (limited) trailer parking.
Located in the large parking lot right across the street from the hotel, you will find some of our hand-picked, exclusive bike vendors. From LED lighting fitted while you wait, to leathers, buttons, badges, and Official Rally T-Shirts. We've got you covered!
Not many Panama City Beach Hotels are able to offer you convenient ground-floor, roadside, as well as beachside units. These units are popular... So we recommend booking early to guarantee one of these rooms.
We know it's expensive to give your bike a brand new paint job, but here in the Sandpiper Tiki Bar, you can check out some amazing body paint! Our professional body painters will paint anyone in your group.
