1. Hit The PC Beach

Ok, this seems obvious. But hear me out – get away from the condos & overpacked beaches and head over to St. Andrews State Park for a romantic, tropical outing with your love. There is a small entrance fee ($8), but totally worth it. With convenient amenities including parking, restrooms and a beach store for snacks/drinks, you can’t go wrong with beaching it here.

Surrounded by gorgeous view of the gulf on one side and the bay & Shell Island on the other, St. Andrews Park is a perfect way to get your fill of sand & sun. Be sure to stop by the Gator Lake and check out the nature trails that are scattered throughout the park. Pro tip, in the middle of Summer, this park does fill up with visitors and there is a capacity number. To ensure you get a parking spot & prime beach real estate, make sure you arrive early in the day!


2. “Paddle & Glow” night kayak trip in PCB

For the adventurers at heart, this night outing will be sure to make for a memorable date night! Visit All Inclusive Adventures to schedule your paddle trip. The kayaks are clear & brightly lit to allow you to view the sea life through the crystal clear gulf waters. You can double up with your date in one kayak, or each grab your own. I would recommend reserving these well in advance – as there are a limited amount of spots per evening. Be sure to check out their other kayak & paddle board rentals as well!


5. Couples Photoshoot in Panama City Beach

As a photographer, I can’t help myself but to end this list with a romantic couples session! PCB boasts some of the most beautiful beach views in the U.S. – and couples sessions are such a fun & intentional way to bond with your partner. Plan ahead and hire a photographer for a sunrise or sunset session (I volunteer as tribute!) to take advantage of mother nature’s perfect backdrop and spice things up on the beach. If you’re on a romantic getaway with your lover, a photoshoot is a sexy, artistic way to freeze those perfect moments – forever! At Be Seen Photos, I make things easy and relaxed. From location to styling to posing, I’ve got you covered every step of the way!
