Mexico Beach is a quiet, laid-back beach community located right along the Gulf of Mexico. It’s conveniently situated less than an hour from the attractions and airport of Panama City but peacefully buffered by the woodlands preserve of Tyndall Air Force Base.
Families have made memories for generations in Mexico Beach with its calm, tranquil waters that lack the dangerous undertows of Panama City Beach and Destin, Florida.
Mexico Beach was hit by Hurricane Michael, in 2018, but is rebuilding beautifully. Dining and shopping options include:
Mango Marley’s Family Restaurant & Bar
Killer Seafood Food Truck overlooking the beach
The Shell Shack Seafood & Gifts
Mexico Beach is as comfortable as a Jimmy Buffet song with friendly locals that describe their home as “Mayberry on the Beach.” Protected by Cape San Blas on the Saint Joseph Peninsula, the sand is as white as sugar and the waters are more clear than Indian Pass, St. George Island and areas to the east. Mexico Beach sits a short 15-minute drive to Port St. Joe and 40-minute drive to historic Apalachicola.
