Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Across the street from Panama City Beach

Miles and miles of beautiful, white sand in Panama City Beach attract thousands of tourists annually. It’s an especially popular destination during Spring Break, drawing waves of high school and college students. A mid-2000s construction boom resulted in the building of numerous high-rise condos and hotels. In addition to these new structures, the Florida panhandle’s main thoroughfare is lined with a variety of mini-golf businesses, arcades, souvenir shops, and seafood restaurants. Other nearby attractions include the scuba diving shop Diver’s Den, Pier Park, St. Andrews State Park, and the Museum of Man in the Sea.

  • 19-minute drive to Panama City-Bay County International Airport
  • 12-minute walk to Signal Hill Golf Course
  • 5-minute drive to Aquatic Adventures
  • 6-minute drive to Shipwreck Island Waterpark
  • 10-minute drive to St. Andrews State Park
  • 11-minute drive to Pier Park
  • 12-minute drive to Florida State University – Panama City
  • 13-minute drive to Museum of Man in the Sea
  • 11-minute drive to Diver’s Den
  • 33-minute drive to Tyndall Air Force Base
