On the beach side of Panama City's main coastal road, Front Beach Road
Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort is right on the beach and just minutes from many of Panama City's best attractions. Shopping, dining, and premier golf courses can be found within 10 minutes of the resort. The charm of downtown Panama City is less than 20 minutes away.
Panama City is a Florida family beach town with all that implies. The area is full of put-put golf, amusement parks, shopping, and the beautiful St. Andrews State Park. The park has the virtues of white-sand beaches, nature trails, and plenty of opportunities for water sports. The immediate area is also home to some challenging golf courses. Panama City also has a downtown area with more vintage charm than most similar beach towns. Downtown, visitors can find seasonal events and art shows as well as live music and shopping.
Edgewater Beach and Golf Resort is an enormous family and business resort that offers generous amenities compared to nearby hotels, including 11 pools and direct beach access. Decor and layout of furniture varies between condo units, and while all are spacious, some are older and have dated, worn decor. The large 500-unit resort offers activities, golf, dining, and a small store -- all of which is uncommon for area hotels. The resort also offers a bright fitness room with aerobic studio, and during the summer, movies are shown outdoors at the main pool.
