Make a holiday apartment in Panama City your home away from home

Panama City lies on the gulf coast of the Florida Panhandle, home to some of the finest beaches in the world, making it a popular destination for holidaymakers, especially during spring break. HomeAway.co.uk offers a range of beach apartments in Panama City, as well as a small selection of holiday villas to cater to larger groups. With typical American attention to detail, Panama City rentals are equipped to a high standard, with up-to-the-minute modern conveniences, ample parking, and ubiquitous air-conditioning. Most Panama City apartments have pool access to keep you cool in the hot summers.

Things to do

-Watersports: Panama City's location on the coast means there's a whole host of watersports to enjoy, with numerous marinas for boating, fishing and diving enthusiasts. Beachfront businesses take care of more extracurricular fare, such as surfing, snorkelling and paddleboarding. If you want to drop the kids off for the day, the Shipwreck Island Water Park provides more supervised thills and spills.

-Beaches: Panama City's crowning jewels are its sugar-white beaches, with a staggering 27 miles to choose from. In addition to the glitz and glamour of the commercial areas, there's masses of quiet, undeveloped stretches to explore, some of which can only be reached by boat.

-Nightlife: If there's a word that could capture Panama City's nightlife it's 'casual'. The Shorts and flip-flops beach culture spreads off the sand and into the eateries, bars and music venues. There's something for everyone, from fast food to fine dining, and from laid-back live music lounges to high energy nightclubs like Club La Vela, the largest nightclub in the US.

-Eco Tours: Getting close to nature is an increasingly popular requirement of the modern holiday. To this end, Panama City is bookended by two state parks and incorporates its own conservation area, all open for activities such as mountain biking, hiking and wildlife watching.

-Golf: With eight 18 hole golf courses (two private), and six 9 hole (one private), Panama City has golfing facilities that far outstrip the population's need in such a small city. With the gulf coast weather and coastal scenery providing a glorious backdrop, you could play a different course every day for a fortnight.

Weather in Panama City

Humid and subtropical, Panama City's winters are short and mild, while the summers are long, hot and humid, with temperatures topping out in the mid-thirties (nineties Fahrenheit). Florida is sunny year-round, but more manageable temperatures, in the high twenties Celsius, can be found in the spring and autumn. Rainfall tends to be heavy and short, generally from summer thunderstorms. The least rain falls in April, May, October and November, marking these months as the prime times to visit.

Travel to Panama City

Flying and driving is the American habit, so the easiest, most hassle-free way to get to and around Panama City is by flying in to Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, twenty miles from the city centre, and renting a car. You could taxi in a pinch, but America is built for the driver, and taxi fares can get prohibitive. There's no Amtrak station, though Greyhound buses do have a downtown station.
