The white sand beaches of Panama City Beach have again ranked among the top in the country by visitors, this year earning the number three spot in the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards for 2019.

The bronze medal is a big upgrade from last year’s list, when Panama City Beach was ranked number 11 out of 25, but was the only Panhandle beach on the list. Big factors that contributed to Panama City Beach’s top rankings include the white sand beaches and year-round destination features. First place for the country again went to Clearwater Beach for the second year in a row. Panama City Beach is joined by another Panhandle beach in the top 5 this year — Pensacola Beach took the number 5 spot this year. Navarre Beach was ranked number 12.
