Water Fun at Sandpiper Beach Beacon Resort
From the two-story turbo water slide to the kiddie pool, Sandpiper Beach Beacon offers water fun for everyone. The resort is home to Panama City’s only indoor Lazy River ride, which is seasonally heated and climate controlled – and available free to all registered guests. It’s just one of the many fun activities that will keep your family busy and engaged during your visit to the Emerald Coast. There are two seasonally heated indoor swimming pools for winter visitors, as well as the outdoor swimming pools – and of course, the ocean itself. With four water slides – including a kiddie water slide for the little tadpoles – and three heated swimming pools, there’s plenty of water even before you hit the beach.
Sandpiper Beach Beacon Resort hosts dozens of fun activities for kids of all ages, from the tadpoles right on up to grandma and grandpa. Your kids can join in on hula hoop contests (and hula lessons), surfboarding and skimboarding, bubbles by the beach and lots of other fun beach activities – with even more added during spring break (for families AND college kids!). As the sun goes down, gather round the fire to make Sunset S’mores – and then tuck the kids off to bed for an adult evening at the Tiki Bar.
