There’s a saying we have in the South: “Slow down, you’re here.” Mexico Beach, Florida, is the perfect off-the-beaten-path place to slow down, relax by the sparkling Gulf of Mexico, experience local culture, and make memories that will last you a lifetime. Located on sugary white sands just twenty miles east of Panama City Beach, Mexico Beach is that Old Florida fishing town you always imagined—full of charm and Southern hospitality and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. There’s a reason it’s called The Unforgettable Coast! (We might be biased, but come see for yourself!)
Fall at the beach is a magical time. The intense heat and busy summer season vanish and make way for relaxing strolls on the sand or bike rides along the coastal highway. The earth’s tilt allows sunsets to fall just right over the Gulf and cast dazzling hues of orange, pink, and purple across the sky. If you’re staying in one of our many affordable vacation rental homes, the best views are just steps away.
Our locals cherish the fall months and hope you will too. Stop by to visit shops full of personality and fun finds—Frost Pottery Garden and Gift Shop, the Grove, About Beach, the Shell Shack, and many others—where you can browse while chatting with friendly local owners and operators who might just give you the inside scoop on the best spots to plant your beach chair or reel in the “big one” on a day of fishing. Seasoned charter captains at the Mexico Beach Marina are here to help with deep-sea expeditions, dolphin tours, sightseeing, and fishing licenses.
Craving the sounds of a steel drum band or a country music twang? With weekly sunset concerts, music festivals, and more, Mexico Beach loves sharing the sounds of its local musicians just as much as sharing the sound of waves against the sand.
