Mexico Beach is a small beach community located in the Florida Panhandle. Situated between Panama City Beach and Port St. Joe, there isn’t anything real close to this small town. You won’t see high rises, crowded beaches, rush hour traffic or even traffic lights through this small town, but you will see a variety of small hotels, vacation home rentals, rv parks, white sand beaches and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
You can experience some good fishing from shore in the surf, in the canal, from the jetty or from the pier. There aren’t any barrier islands outside of Mexico Beach like there are in many of the other popular destinations in Florida. This means no bay fishing in protected waters. On windy days, it’s tough to get out of the wind unless you head towards Port St. Joe or Panama City Beach. There are numerous fishing charters in Mexico Beach that are available and they fish inshore and offshore for a variety of fish. Take a look at our Mexico Beach Fishing Tips page for more fishing information.
