From getting up close and personal with marine life to catching rays on snowy white sands to enjoying tiki-themed libations poolside, the options in this southern paradise seem limitless, leaving some beach-goers wondering where to go and what to do. Here we’ll break down three of the panhandle’s best destinations—Pensacola, Destin, and Panama City. Pack your sunscreen and your towel and get ready to hit the water.
