Panama City Beach has been a favorite vacation destination for us for 20+ years since our boys were high school age. We live in the metro Atlanta area and love visiting our special slice of paradise at Calypso! We love the sugar sand beach, the aqua water, the delicious local seafood, and the relaxing, family friendly, casual atmosphere. No worries! My favorite thing to do is chill on our beach chairs, read a book, and people and wildlife watch!!:)
We chose Calypso Resort first of all because it is in the most desirable location on one of the 'world's most beautiful beaches'! Its Gulf front location and amenities are outstanding. It is across the street and within walking distance to the many activities, food, shopping of the upscale Pier Park. From our spacious Gulf front balcony, I enjoy seeing the sunsets, dolphins swimming, and the pelicans soaring and diving for their dinner! For me it is a very special, relaxing place in which to retreat and recharge.
Because our 3 bedroom, 3 full bath unit is an end unit, we enjoy the expansive gulf views to the east as well as off the balcony. I enjoy preparing food in our kitchen and being able to see out the windows down the beach for miles all the way to St Andrews State Park 10 miles away! I have often spotted a school of dolphins or a flock of pelicans soaring by. Our guests in our queen suite also have a magnificent view of the gulf and beach. Our 1514 sq ft of living space provides all occupants plenty of room for privacy and comfort.
