About Panama City Beach

There is more to Panama City and the beach than white sand and bikinis…

It may take some time to discover, but this is a place filled with history… a history that contributes much to its character…

Many of our local waterways, cities and natural landmarks were named by Spanish explorers hundreds of years ago. This is true for most of Florida… the conquistadors made a practice of naming important navigational landmarks (usually bays and rivers) for Catholic saints.

Hence, St. Andrew’s Bay, the large bay which is at the heart of this county was named for St. Andrew because it was discovered on the day the Catholic calendar designated to the patron Saint, Andrew.
