On the western edge of Panama City Beach, nestled off the road in a gated community is Pinnacle Port. The ultimate family destination at Carillon Beach is packed with every amenity needed. Pinnacle Port Resort is perfectly situated on a peninsula with white sandy beaches and the Gulf of Mexico on one side and beautiful 800 acre Lake Powell on the other side. Pinnacle Port is described as a “quiet corner of the world” because it is free from the hubbub, marred traffic and noise of other locations, yet accessibly close to all the attractions of Panama City Beach.
Entrance to the 23 acre Pinnacle Port property is gained through a continuously manned security gate. You will also appreciate that the Pinnacle Port Property has roving property patrols on duty 24 hours every day.
The beach at Pinnacle Port is everything a good beach should be. Step out the back door of the Tower and you are immediately on the beach, where the sugar white sand invites you to sit enjoy the ocean view, the relaxing sound of the waves lapping against the shore, the captivating sunrises, glorious sunsets and the invigorating walks on the beach with all the pleasure that it brings.
Step out the front door of the tower and see a pier and boat dock located just beyond a lovely gazebo on beautiful Lake Powell. There are paddle boats, kayaks and canoes available for rent at the business office. You may want to bring your fishing gear and wet a hook from the pier or launch your boat at the boat ramp. Boat parking is available until you are ready to launch. In the cool of the evening for a change of pace you may choose to take an easy walk to nearby Carillon Beach and enjoy the live concerts on the green. Everything you could want for a fun filled vacation.
Pinnacle Port is family centered. There are four lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, basketball courts, horseshoes, two swimming pools and a children’s playground. All of these outdoor amenities beckon your use. In addition to these, you will also find a picnic pavilion with barbeque grills. Additional barbeque grills are found in other locations on the property.
The ground floor of the Tower is the location for indoor amenities and activities. The indoor portion of the large pool is in one wing of the Tower. You are also welcome to use the newly refurbished and equipped exercise room, separate saunas for men and women, a sitting area with comfortable couches and chairs and there card and game tables as well.
Should you want to explore opportunities away from Pinnacle Port, take a drive to Pier Park, only a short distance away. This recently developed center is designed to create an exciting shopping and dining experience.
Go a little further to the east and you will find Gulf World water park where you will be amazed and entertained watching the dolphins perform and sometimes even an opportunity to swim with the dolphins. Water sports and activities abound in the area. You name it and you can get it, from fishing excursion, wave runner, snorkeling, or a boat ride over to shell island. Then there are go kart tracks, mini golf and full golf courses, and exceptional restaurants.
On another day head west for a short drive down scenic 30A and you will find exclusive homes, shopping that is incredible and dining that is first class. But wait, Destin is just a hop skip and a jump away where you can find shopping in 3 different outside malls, a Bass Pro shop and wherever you may go you will find dining opportunities catered to please even the most sensitive palate. If you are a bicycle enthusiast you will find incredible paved bike path are waiting, all just minutes away.
Now let’s explore what my condo unit is like. My condo is located on the 7th floor of the tower building with stunning views of both Lake Powell and the Gulf of Mexico. The upstairs balcony overlooks the swimming pool and the gulf. Spectacular views of the setting sun can often be seen from the upstairs balcony. The Downstairs balcony overlooks the boat docks and Lake Powell.
This unit is a 2 bed room with 2 full baths upstairs and a half bath and laundry just off the kitchen downstairs. The master has one queen bed and a gulf view. There is plenty of closet space and a TV in the master. The other bedroom features two twin beds. The beds and furnishings are high quality designed to offer you maximum rest and comfort.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all dishes and appliances. There are wine glasses, baking dishes, coffee mugs, and glasses. It has a new refrigerator with icemaker, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster oven, stove, blender, numerous cabinets for your convenience and other items found in a kitchen.
Here are some important things you need to know. First, my condo only sleeps and accommodates four people. There is no sofa bed and the dining table only seats four, so four is the maximum number that can be reasonably accommodated. Then, you will be pleased to know that my condo is a no smoking unit. No pets are allowed by the condo association and will not be admitted at the front gate. Finally, The new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport is only 20 minutes away!
Come on down and enjoy an awesome vacation with something for everyone in the family!
My wife and I bought our condo in 1984 after vacationing here for several years. Interestingly enough, my wife remembers coming to this very area before there was a Pinnacle Port with her father and they went crabbing in what is now Lake Powell. Our four children grew up coming to Pinnacle Port and loving it. Now their kids are doing so as well. It has been an integral part of our lives for nearly three decades stretching over three generations.

To use the real estate expression, it is “location, location, location. You just can't get any closer to the beach than this. I think a better or more beautiful location cannot be found with the gulf out the door right onto the beach on one side of the building and out the door on the other side to Lake Powell. My wife always felt secure here and we always felt that it was safe place for our kids and now our grandkids to be and play. It is family centered with terrific visual appeal and offers a vast array of amenities.
The property is a half mile away from the noisy busy traffic. The Pinnacle Port beach is longer than any to be found in the area and the property is bordered on the east by very upscale detached houses and a small state park on the west, separated by Phillips Inlet. In a sense we are cloistered and at the same time essential services and conveniences are nearby.
We arrived on October 5th with luggage cards available to take us right up to the unit and the elevator was very close to our unit. Upon arriving there was a spacious kitchen with all appliances and everything needed to prepare our meals. It was great having a 1/2 bath downstairs. There was an open concept living and dining area off the kitchen. There is a balcony off the living area with chairs, tables and beach necessities such as beach chairs, an umbrella, and nets for our two boys to hunt for crabs after dark. Going upstairs you'll find two comfortable twin beds in one bedroom with nice bedding, plenty of closet space, a TV, a bathroom in the hallway and windows looking out over Lake Powell. Down a short hallway you'll find the master bedroom with its own bath, very comfortable bed, two nice size closets and furniture for storing your items. You'll even have your own balcony over looking the ocean.
Going back down the elevator you'll find relaxing game room space, exercise room, men and women's sauna, and two sets of rest rooms. The large pool has very nice tables with umbrellas as well as lounge chairs. The piped in music was very enjoyable. Part of the pool was covered in case of rain. Leaving the pool you'll go down about 6 steps or so and you'll be on the beach. You're that close! We'll definitely stay there again. Its nice to have Publix or Walmart close to the condo as well as restaurants, movies and other shopping.
We had a wonderful trip to pinnacle port! The condo was very comfortable! Cass was great to work with, and responded promptly to emails! We will definitely use again!
We enjoyed our stay in this unit and would love to stay here again in the future!!
Very convenient to everything, but far enough away from the very busy areas. Loved having the Gulf shore on one side and the lake on the other, they are literally right there when you walk out the door. The pool is half indoor and half outdoor, and was kept very clean. We have two younger children and this area is also very child friendly. The owner was very helpful and prompt in returning messages.
We had a great time. thanks!
My parents and I stayed the week of Aug 6th. The unit is very outdated, which would have been fine if it had of been cleaner. The cleaning lady was still there when we arrived, she thought check in was at 4. The showers and shower curtain had mold. The front and bottom of the stove were filthy. Kitchen cabinets were very unorganized, we washed everything before using it. The couch smelled like feet and the front room closet where they kept the cleaning supplies like broom etc were filthy.
The unit is on the beach and the views are stunning. The resort is nice with 2 nice pools. Getting to the beach was a little complicated but we finally found the entrance. We had to leave half way thru the week due to the rain but we were ok with that.
We will not stay here again.
