Lovely beach you can walk on for a long time. There is a pier located on the north end. Super soft sand, lots of small shells and plenty of dolphins swimming close to shore. There are beach toy rentals in front of el governor hotel.

This was our first trip to Mexico Beach. It is a small town but offers beautiful beaches with great public access without the crowds and traffic of other beaches in the Northwest FL area.There are several good restaurants and coffee shops as well.

Stopped here while touring. The view and different colors of the ocean water are great. Nice photos can be taken here. Water was calm the day we stopped.

Beautiful beach!! Pelicans and sea gulls galore! Very clean and well maintained beach. So clean and beautiful that you can literally sit on the sand without a beach towel! The beach is combed and maintained nightly. Just another piece of paradise!

If you are looking for the fast-paced, jam packed, loud and exciting Panama City experience, go to Panama City! But if you are looking for a beautiful, natural, serene beach in a quaint and friendly small town, Mexico Beach is the best I've found. My grandmother and I have been making pilgrimage-style visits to this peaceful oasis for over 20... More

If you are looking for a nature beach with natural beauty this is your beach. Good parking with a store close by and a pier with bathrooms. The bathrooms need more tending to but over all a plus for a beach.

I went here with high expectations.. but honestly there is nothing great about it.. kinda dirty and smelly.. but it's free and if you need something to do and want to save money, pack a lunch and head down.

Small but friendly beach town. No chain type restaurants. Locally owned businesses. Friendly people. Town's sidewalks need to be upgraded.
