Mexico Beach, Florida

Just about 1000 people are lucky enough to call Mexico Beach home. This gem in Bay County lies nestled between Cape San Blas to the east and Panama City to the west. Its unpolluted air, three and a half miles of un-crowded beaches with pristine sugar-white sand, incomparable sunsets, and emerald-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico make it an ideal vacation destination. Mexico Beach’s sand bar protected ocean is the safest water on the Gulf Coast.

About The Community

Mexico Beach is the perfect vacation spot for you if you are an angler. You can fish from the city’s pier or out on boats. You are certain to have a successful day surf fishing for trout, whiting, mackerel, or cobia. Several fully equipped marinas cater to the boaters and charter boats are available for off shore or in shore fishing, scuba diving excursions, or just a relaxing day on the water. The city’s Canal Park with covered picnic tables, and a boardwalk along the water is also a favorite spot to catch big blue crabs, trout, redfish, and flounder.
