Mexico Beach Florida

FEATURED LISTING: Florida ::: Mexico Beach

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.

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 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.

Spend a relaxing morning basking in the golden rays of the Florida sunshine, or swim in or float on a raft in the cool waters just beyond the surf line. The coast is a beachcomber’s delight with beautiful shells on the water's edge and numerous species of birds flitting around. Nothing can be more serene and relaxing.

There is virtually no traffic even in peak vacation season but plenty to do as you browse the shops or stop for a meal. There are numerous options to try, depending on your mood.

Begin at Sharon's Cafe, a renowned breakfast and lunch spot on Mexico Beach, which features the giant Happy Face Pancakes. Amanda's Bistro is among Mexico Beach's newer restaurants featuring European and American style cuisine. Enjoy gourmet Pizzas, Hot & Cold Specialty Sub Sandwiches at Beach Pizza.
