Activities on Property

While there are several fun things to do around Panama City Beach, sometimes you want to sit back and relax without leaving your home away from home.

There are so many activities and entertainment options right here at the Dunes of Panama resort, which are included when you purchase one of our Panama City Beach vacation rentals.

We encourage you to take advantage of all of these opportunities, and below are some great options of what to explore right here on site.

Beach access

Your vacation condo already overlooks 1500 feet of beautiful beachfront, so take advantage of it! The stunning white sand will bring you to the even more gorgeous waters of the gulf. Take the time to enjoy this serene setting with a walk, or lie out on the Gulf of Mexico beach, and even dip your toes in the water!

This is a great alternative to going to any of the packed public beaches if you’re looking for something a little more private and low key. Beach chairs and rentals are also available right from the resort, which will make your experience easier than ever.


If you don’t feel like swimming in the Gulf, head to one of our beautiful gulf-front pools. We have three amazing pool locations for you to enjoy, and one of them is even heated during the colder months (November 1- May 1) so you won’t miss out on any time outside! Near these pools, there are also quaint gazebos for you to hang out in.

Outdoor relaxing

There are also plenty of opportunities to relax outside at the Dunes of Panama Resort where you won’t have to get into the water at all. We offer two fire pits that are fun to sit by and relax if it’s a little chilly outside or at night.

There are also outdoor barbeques and picnic tables available on the grounds so you can opt for a cookout as one of the things to do while in Panama City Beach.


You’ll also be able to enjoy activities like volleyball, tennis, basketball, and shuffleboard right at the resort. Courts for all of these activities are located right here at the resort. The tennis courts are also lighted so you will be able to enjoy them into the late evening or in the early morning.

If you’re still looking to get in some exercise, but don’t want to play any of these sports, we have something for that too. Dunes of Panama offers a fitness room so you can keep up on your workouts even on vacation.

Children’s activities

Of course, this is a family-oriented resort, so we also have some great activities lined up for the kids, without having to leave the premises. Every Wednesday from 9:00 am – 10:00 am (CST) during June and July there is a souvenir t-shirt painting event near the C building pool. FREE to guests who have rented through Dunes of Panama Vacation Rentals. All others are welcome to join in on the fun for $8 per child.

There are also swing sets right on the beach so you and the family can have some playground fun while still enjoying the feel of Panama City Beach. There are also tons of fun activity games organized by the staff here at the resort, so make sure to check in the office to find out what’s going on during your stay!

On-site Vendors

If you’re hungry for a quick bite or need to pick up something from the store, don’t worry! You won’t even have walk very far from our Panama City Beach vacation rentals if you don’t want to.

Suds Weezers Beach Store & Deli has sandwiches, pizza, and ice cream, plus any of those items you may have forgotten to pack. There’s also a beach hut near two of the pool decks called Sneaky Tiki which serves frozen drinks and snacks!
