  • Great Family Reunion!

    "We just spent a week at Seagull Landing with six adults and three young children, and we couldn't have been happier with the house and the area. Somewhat secluded but a short walk or drive to everything, it was quiet, very clean, and first class. The house was amazing - we all had quiet spots where we could go to read or just be alone, but there was plenty of room to accommodate everyone in the kitchen/dining area. We had both pools pretty much to ourselves, and the beaches were beautiful and quiet. We would definitely recommend this house to others and hope to visit again ourselves."

    "We enjoyed our stay and had plenty of room for five adults. The duplex was clean and having a washer and dryer was really nice. It was an easy walk to the beach and we enjoyed watching all the boats go in and out of the canal. We did lots of fishing, walking, kite flying, and hunting for crabs at night. Our end the of beach was very quiet. We saw lots of sting rays and that was really cool!!!! The house is close to stores and easy to find. I would recommend this home to anyone. We plan on going back and taking more of the family. Next time we will rent both sides of duplex."

  • Spring Break Fishing and Relaxing

    "This was our first time spending spring break in mexico beach. I had planned this to spend a week hanging out and fishing all week with my 2 college age boys. Me and my wife have stayed in several cottages in the PCB area and this one is by far the cleanest, best equipped and felt most like staying at a friend or family members house. Tami was really Awesome to work with and Dewanna went out of her way to help us out. Everything was updated and fresh and very well stocked. Even though we didn't catch the big one we were hoping for, we will definitely be back to try again. Use of the kayak and the pier being so close were also a big plus. I am already making plans to come back with my wife so we can check out the area alot more."

  • Winter in Mexico Beach

    "I highly recommend staying at Sandpipers Rest! We are here for the winter (four months) and have been most comfortable. We have rented several condos over the years, and this is definitely one of the better ones. It is newer than a lot of the rentals in Mexico Beach. It is spacious and comfortably furnished. Even the mattress is comfortable! It is well decorated in a coastal (not tacky) theme, and well maintained. The exterior is well landscaped, and the back deck overlooks a beautiful courtyard. The pool looks inviting, even at night, when it is well lighted. When we come back to this area, this is definitely where we want to stay!"

Mexico Beach Attractions

Beaches: Some of the best beaches in the country are found in Mexico Beach. The sand is made up of nearly 12 different materials and contains quartz crystals. There are no rivers that flow through Mexico Beach so the sand is pure and white, and since it's reflective it doesn't get hot during the summer. Visitors to Mexico Beach get to enjoy 5 miles of the coastline with plenty of public beach access. If you're lucky, you may even get to see a sea turtle. Five endangered species venture onto the shore in Mexico Beach to create nests for their eggs.

Diving: There's easy access to several dive sites off of the coast of Mexico Beach that are perfect for scuba diving, snorkeling and spearfishing. Visitors will enjoy the beauty of the natural and artificial reefs as well as the shipwreck sites. The Empire Mica is a wreck site that will give divers a world-class experience in 105 feet of water. There's also the lumber ship Vamar, which lies 27 feet below the surface near the Bell Shoal area. It's accessible by scuba divers and snorkelers, and is even visible from the surface.

You can grab fresh seafood from the Fish House Restaurant, Gourmet by the Bay, Killer Seafood or Regan's Pub and Oyster Bar. Or you can choose to relax at Caribbean Coffee, Graba Java Internet Cafe or Sharon's Cafe.
