Mexico Beach is home to some of the world’s most beautiful white-sand beaches and clear, clean emerald waters.
Geologically, our beaches are quite rare. The sand found on the majority of the world’s beaches contains a mixture of approximately twenty different materials. The sugar-like white sand found in Mexico Beach, however, contains only one: evenly sized quartz crystals. This quartz sand originated millions of years ago in the Appalachian Mountain range. Because our area lacks the influence of silt-bearing rivers, our sand remains pure and white. This white quartz sand is highly reflective—which is the reason our beaches remain cool, even during the hottest summer months!
The City of Mexico Beach has five miles of beach available for residents and visitors to enjoy. Public beach access is easy and abundant with direct park access and a number of easy-to-spot walkovers connecting Highway 98 to the beach. The beach is open and ready for visitors to come and enjoy.
Immerse yourself with the Gulf Coast flavors Mexico Beach has to offer. Our restaurants cater to satisfy any palate. Start off your day with a homemade breakfast, enjoy a smooth sunset cocktail and a savory meal, and make every moment count with dreamy desserts. Grab some company and come enjoy the many tastes of what we have to offer.
Whether you're angling for pompano, Spanish mackerel, grouper, or many other native species, the fishing in Mexico Beach is as good as it gets. Our marina and charters are up and running, ready for your next outing! Many charters offer the option of inshore or offshore trips and most include your gear and license. With canal access to the Gulf, boat ramp with fish cleaning station, and launch station with available parking, your fishing adventure on the Gulf of Mexico awaits.
Colorful shops dot the roadside as Highway 98 curves through Mexico Beach. A variety of quality merchandise, from gifts and souvenirs to gourmet foods and fine art, is available!
It’s time to make memories that last forever on the Unforgettable Coast!
