Recent Mexico Beach reviews

  • Wonderful time

    "Our stay was wonderful. The house was perfect, very close to the beach and an amazing pool in the backyard when we got tired of the sand. There were 5 adults and 3 children in our party and the house was spacious enough to accommodate all of us. The owner was so easy to work with and made it a pleasant experience for us. Would highly recommend to others, we would definitely return."

  • The Best

    "Thank you, Jennifer. Your little piece of paradise is perfect. We had a wonderful week. It did rain for 2 days, but Mexico Beach is a fun place to be, rain or shine. The beautiful white sandy beach is only steps away. The house is well equipped, we found everything we needed. Thank you, again. We will be back."

  • Can't wait to go back!

    "This condo was awesome for my wife and I and also our 14 year old son. The condo was very clean and comfortable, even the beds were in great condition and provided good rest. This isn't a touristy area and that's exactly what we were looking for. We practically had the beach to ourselves and it was a beautiful view of Cape San Blas. If you want to get away from it all and have a relaxing experience this is the place to go. We can't wait to go back next year!"

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.
