ADD TO FAVORITES
The natural beauty of this quiet town will draw you back again and again.

This small coastal community, located 20 miles east of Panama City on Florida's Undiscovered Gulf Coast, is a quiet, serene destination. With a permanent residency of just under 1,300 people, Mexico Beach provides a small-town atmosphere filled with the charm of the Florida panhandle.

Mexico Beach is a quiet town where the preserved natural beauty of the land and sea combines to make a spellbinding destination. Shelling, watching the dolphins play at sunset, and dipping into the Gulf of Mexico for a refreshing swim are favorite pastimes for visitors and locals alike. The residents are relaxed and cordial and the local restaurants, with their fabulous menus, provide the perfect setting to meet with family and friends.

If fishing spells relaxation for you, bring your rod and tackle and cast your line into the beautiful emerald green Gulf of Mexico from City Canal Park, the City Pier or right from the edge of the surf line. For those who are more adventurous, several charter services are available to take you out into the Gulf where the big fish reside. Mexico Beach has an active volunteer organization, the Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Association, whose principal directive is to deploy ecologically friendly reefs at various deep-water locations for improved angling.

Mexico Beach is a tranquil enclave where peace awaits - a place where you can escape from crowds, jobs and the stress of everyday life. It is an unspoiled treasure of intrinsic natural beauty, friendly people and carefree spirits.
