Beautiful and clean beach

I was visiting a friend who is stationed nearby and was impressed by the town and lovely beach. The San is so soft and not hot on the feet. The beach was busy but not ever crowded.

I have been to beaches all over the world and the soft white sand here rivals them all. Nice Beach for she'll collecting. The water is emerald green color and looks clean. I might have tried swimming but I watched a man land a 3 to 4 ft shark by shore casting. I was to scared to swim after that.

One of the best things about the Forgotten Coast is that it is not crowded. Mexico beach is no different. Lots of fun things to do. Great for familes

We visit Mexico Beach one day and I can only express: This is the place to stay when visiting Florida. It's less commercial than most of the other beaches and the area is very clean and nice.

Mexico Beach is a great little get-away spot and Toucans is a must see, must eat stop while there. Food and drink are excellent and has a great view of the beach and bay. The service and atmosphere is outstanding.

We love Mexico Beach because you go to the beach. It isn't all about the arcades, restaurants, but for the beach.

Mexico Beach is a small narrow beach. It's not crowded and very relaxing. It's well kept and doesn't have your typical high rise condos--many more houses and smaller condo units. Definitely relaxing with beautiful sun sets! In my opinion, the restaurants are better in Port St. Joe which is a straight shot down Highway 98.

This was the most beautiful beach. White sands, shells and dolphins swimming near the beach. A pier to walk out on for an even closer view of the dolphins. I will consider staying in Mexico Beach next time i am in Florida, because my one day trip was not nearly long enough.

I love this place. It is my new found best all-around beach destination for me and the family. Stayed at El Governor RV Camp Ground (Loved it as well).
