Swimming, shelling, boating, fishing, diving, kayaking, surfing, eco-tours, jet ski rentals and parasailing are just some of the outdoor activities our pristine beaches offer. But if you are looking to relax, nothing beats an umbrella, lounge chair and a good book, right on the sugar-white sands of Mexico Beach.
Nature lovers enjoy bird watching and aquatic animals. Look for bald eagles in the winter months and loggerhead turtle hatchlings in the late summer. Dolphins surf waves close to the beach year ‘round. Keep your eyes peeled; you never know what you will see! Crooked Island is a favorite spot to visit away from it all, about a 9-mile boat ride from the Mexico Beach canal.
Explore the quaint shops around Mexico Beach for souvenirs, unique beach accessories, local art, antiques and fine clothing.
For the sports enthusiasts, St. Joseph’s Bay Golf Club, just to the east of Port St. Joe, offers 18 holes of challenging play. Drop by the Mexico Beach CDC for a complete list of area golf courses. Scuba diving is increasing popular with outstanding wreck diving through the Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Program (MBARA) now in its 15th year.
