Start planning your trip to Panama City Beach

Safety First Lifeguard Program

Boardwalk Beach Hotel is proud to be the first property in the area to partner with the Panama City Beach government to add lifeguard services to our beach. As the ONLY private beach on Panama City Beaches equipped with a dedicated lifeguard program, your safety remains our top priority. Our commitment to providing a secure and enjoyable environment has made us a trusted destination for residents and visitors alike.

Weather permitting, lifeguards will be on duty from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

*Times are subject to change. Notice of lifeguards on duty will be updated daily onsite.

Lifeguards do not eliminate the need for caution. Please be aware that water conditions in the Gulf of Mexico can change at any time. We advise all our guests to use their best judgment when deciding to venture out into the water and how far.

Stay Informed: In Panama City Beach, color-coded beach flags are in place to keep the public aware of sea conditions. To ensure everyone stays informed, please familiarize yourself with the beach warning flags. Remember, double red means staying out of the water—you could be arrested for ignoring this warning!

Spread the Word: Safety is a collective effort! Educate your loved ones about the flag system, and let’s create a beach community that prioritizes everyone’s well-being.

Let’s make every beach day a safe and memorable one! So stay aware, and have fun on our gorgeous Florida beaches!

Please always obey the laws and flag systems at all times. Safety should be your top priority when swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. Absence of beach flags does not assure safe waters. For more info about the flag system and lifeguards provided by Panama City Beach click here.
