Your guide to Mexico Beach
All About Mexico Beach
Perched on Florida’s Emerald Coast, Mexico Beach is a sunny destination beloved for its white sands, clear waters, and family-friendly spirit. Spend relaxing days stretching out on the sand, fishing on the Gulf of Mexico, and scoping out dive sites. When you turn your gaze to the horizon, you’ll likely see dolphins playing in the waves and pelicans swooping overhead. Make no mistake, people come here for the crystalline waters, surf, and scuba diving, but this down-to-earth community also has a lot of character. While here, don’t be surprised if you get invited to the annual Beach Gumbo Cook-Off. In 2018, Mexico Beach was one of the communities hit hard by Hurricane Mike, but with the help of friends and neighbors, they’ve managed to rebuild, in a true testament to the people who love this city.
How do I get around Mexico Beach?
Mexico Beach is located about a 20-minute drive from Panama City, and about an hour’s drive from the closest airport, Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP). It’s also about an hour east of the transportation hubs of South Walton and Destin, straight down Highway 98. Public transport is limited, so having a car here will be essential for any excursions, day trips, and getting to and from the airport. Within the town, you can walk most places, even after dark.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Mexico Beach?
With quirky local festivals aplenty, there’s something fun going on whenever you decide to visit. August to September is prime time to sample Bay scallops (or try your hand at fishing for them, if you have a license). August is also when the beloved Kingfish Tournament takes place. February is the annual Gumbo Cook-Off. If you want to see baby turtles hatching and making their way to the sea, May through October is their nesting season (just be sure not to get too close). Weather-wise, the summer tends to be hot, humid, and rainy, while the winter can get quite cool. For optimal weather, spring and autumn are your best bets. August through September is peak hurricane season, so if you’re traveling during those months be sure to pay attention to the local forecast.
What are the top things to do in Mexico Beach?
Mexico Beach has put a lot of stock in regenerating its coral reefs and protecting its marine ecosystems. The Gulf of Mexico is now home to more than 125 artificial reefs, some of which have grown into dense coral forests. Diving around here is also like a treasure hunt: scope out the Artificial Reef Pyramids, a WWII oil tanker, and several wrecked boats.
The fishing around Mexico Beach is pretty great, especially during the summer months, when it’s possible to find Bay scallops, mackerel, red snapper, and grouper. Even novices can try their hand if you plan your trip in accordance with one of the license-free Fishing Days, which the city hosts throughout the year. Not a fan of fishing? You can still sample all the seafood you like, as local fishermen drag their hauls into local restaurants every day.
Dolphins, sea turtles, pelicans, and bald eagles are all locals here, and depending on the time of year you come, you’ll have a pretty good chance of spotting them casually along the beach. Sea turtle nesting season happens every May through October, while bald eagles are best spotted in the winter. Regardless of season, there are few things more idyllic than watching the sun set over the water from your Mexico Beach rental, beverage in hand, as dolphins play in the waves in the distance.
