5. Carillon Beach homes (from USD 245)

If you’ve got a big group, this might be the best area to stay in Panama City Beach. Some, like the Sea Glasshouse, are only 215 USD a night, and can sleep up to 7 people, while others are more expensive, like the Generations Beach House at 990 USD a night - but it sleeps up to 15 people, so split 15 ways, that’s 66 USD a person per night.

With your own house you’d have your own private access to the beach and all the amenities that come with it - be sure to book at least a month in advance, as prices could go up.
