Panama City Beach’s West End is the quieter side of PCB 3.5 miles from Rosemary Beach and less high-rise condominiums.
The stretch from the “Y” — where Highway 79 flows in a Y shape into Highway 98 (also known as Front Beach Road) and runs several miles west to where Front and Back 98 merge — has an appeal all its own. It is quiet (by most beach standards) and occupied by people who favor solitude and don’t require the bustle of busy places. No amusement parks. No sprawling shopping complexes. Just peace. Quiet. Solitude. Yet with plenty of enticing places.
