Back inside the studio apartment, you can watch TV or surf the web (Shores of Panama 1705 has free WiFi) from the luxe queen-size bed or the plush sofa. That sofa, by the way, opens into yet another queen-size bed, should you have unexpected guests or want to bring the kids along. When you’re not dining on the balcony—or at Shores of Panama’s large beachfront picnic area, or the numerous nearby restaurants—you can savor a quiet dinner for 2 at the dining table. The condo’s kitchen is equipped with all the appliances, gadgets, cookware, and tableware you’ll need to prepare even an extravagant feast. There’s even a dishwasher because when the beach is just steps away nobody wants to scrub dishes. Shores of Panama 1705 has its own washer and dryer for a similar reason: Vacation time should not be wasted at a laundromat.
When you arrive at Shores of Panama 1705, you’ll find the bed beautifully made, extra bedding at the ready, and plenty of clean towels in the bathroom, which includes a combination shower/tub. You can take a bath or a nap as soon as you arrive.
Then again, as soon as you arrive you might want to explore the resort. Shores of Panama’s 18,000-square-foot pool area is said to feature the largest beachfront pool in northwest Florida. The lagoon-style pool will delight serious swimmers and casual toe-dippers alike. Like the pool, the surrounding sundeck—accented with fountains, surrounded by chaises, palm trees, and tropical flowers, and featuring an oversized hot tub—is spectacular. You could easily spend your entire vacation right out there, especially as there are poolside tiki bars when you can buy food and beverages as you luxuriate among the salt-laced gulf breezes.
Shores of Panama has an indoor pool and hot tub as well, for when it’s too brisk to swim outside. If you prefer a different kind of workout, head to the resort’s fitness center, which is open 24/7.
A private walkway over the dunes connects the resort to the beach. Being able to stroll to and from the beach anytime you want is perhaps the greatest luxury of staying at Shores of Panama 1705. Head out first thing in the morning to collect seashells and watch gulls and terns dive-bomb in the gulf for breakfast. Come back after your own breakfast to paddleboard or parasail among the waves. In the afternoon canoe or kayak, bodysurf or race jet skis, and at night enjoy a quiet walk on the sands, admiring the moon’s reflection on the serene waters.
There’s so much to relish on the beach and among the resort’s grounds, you could park your car for pretty much your entire stay, especially as there are also restaurants and shops within walking distance. Also within walking distance are WonderWorks, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and Signal Hill Golf Course. But there’s plenty more to see and do just a short drive away. ZooWorld, Shipwreck Island Water Park, Gulf World Marine Park, the Pier Park outdoor mall, and St. Andrews State Park are all no more than 20 minutes away.
Shores of Panama 1705 combines the comfort of a private with the luxury of a beachfront resort and the convenience of being close to just about every sort of attraction and activity you could want. Book your stay today… before someone else beats you to it!
