Recent Mexico Beach reviews

  • Great location!

    "We loved the house as well as the location! It was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked not as previous reviews noted. My only request for the owner is that if you advertise sleeping arrangements for 8, you should supply more than 4 bath towels as well as linens for the sleeper sofa. Other than that, no complaints!!! We have already planned to book this place again when coming down."

  • Wonderful!

    "We had a great vacation here. The location is perfect- the beach is just steps away and the pier is an easy five minute stroll. My husband had fun fishing, even though he didn't catch that many fish. I loved sitting on the deck, reading and enjoying the ocean view. The sunsets were absolutely incredible! The house is lovely and had everything we needed. Jennifer was so easy to work with and very accomodating. The pizzaria at the end of the block had great pizza . There's an excellent seafood market across the street. The time spent here was exactly what we needed .We hope to be able to make a return visit someday!"

  • first time with vrbo

    "This was our first time using vrbo so we were a little leery. But everything went smoothly and was as promised. The house was clean quiet and comfortable. Everything for beach was there for our use including rod holders and a high chair for my youngest grandchild. Mark so graciously allowed our daughter's dog as a last minute addition. I would highly recommend this as a relaxing and very affordable vacation."

It's a serene destination on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico and offers the small-town atmosphere you're looking for in a relaxing tropical getaway.

Nature's beauty is preserved and the beaches are full of life in Mexico Beach. Visitors can head out for some shopping or dining and hike through parks and conservancies during their stay. If you want to see the dolphins play at sunset, Mexico Beach is the place to do it. The most favorite pasttime among visitors and locals is swimming in the clear waters.

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.
