Our Beaches are Getting Bigger for You!
Panama City Beach is undergoing a beach renourishment project which will enhance the beach experience right behind our all new Holiday Inn Express & Suites! The beach renourishment project covers four separate areas of the beach and will add over 840,000 cubic yards of beautiful sugar white sand to our already incredible beaches within the project areas. This is a huge project that is set for completion right before the opening of the Holiday Inn Express & Suites this May. Not only will we have an incredible new building with beautiful, spacious, modern rooms and a wonderful tropical pool deck featuring a lazy river and beachside bar & grill, we’ll now also have a freshly renourished beach – giving our guests more room to spread out and relax.
The sand for this large-scale beach renourishment project comes from our permitted, offshore “borrow areas” with the main borrow area located approximately 3.5 miles offshore of the Thomas Drive area, with secondary borrow areas near the St. Andrews Bay entrance channel. The source of the sand that is placed on our beaches is very important as the sugary sands of Panama City Beach is known for being pristine. The sand in our area is not like sand in any other areas, it’s bright white color and powdery soft texture is truly something special, and to keep our beaches true to their reputation the quality of the sand has been tested and chosen from specific areas here locally.
The all new Holiday Inn Express & Suites and the beach it rests on will be in premium condition for its first guests this summer season. Call us direct at 855.232.3438 for more information and how tofind out how you can be among the firsts to experience this great new hotel!
