According to the United States Census Bureau, the city limits encompass an area of 35.4 square miles, of which 29.3 square miles is land and 6.2 square miles, or 17.39%, is water.

Panama City Beach is a city in Bay County, Florida, United States, on the Gulf of Mexico coast.

For quite some time Panama City Beach has been a popular vacation destination, especially among people in the Southern United States. The city is also a very popular spring break destination, sometimes having been referred to as "The Spring Break Capital of the World”, due to about 100,000+ college and high school students who would arrive during the months of March and April.
