Panacea and Beaches

Welcome to Panacea & the Beach

Escape the bustle of city living, the modern high-rises and jam-packed boardwalks that populate much of Florida’s shoreline, and take a trip down Highway 98 to the “Forgotten Coast” of Panacea. This quiet coastal community seems to have almost escaped the passage of time entirely, with an authentic “Old Florida” feel and residents who still work in the evergreen traditions of crabbing, fishing, and shipbuilding. Panacea is the perfect place for boaters and anglers, for nature lovers and adventurers, for those who want to gaze out over the wide-open waters of the Gulf or the wildlife-abundant tidal marshes and towering pine forests of the Apalachicola National Forest.

If you’re looking for a true coastal escape, then Panacea is the place to find it. Come explore.
