Mexico Beach truly lives up to its name. Seven miles of pristine sugar-soft sand beaches along the Gulf of Mexico are among the finest in the United States. Sheltered by the long arm of the St. Joseph Peninsula, Mexico Beach surf has no undertow. The whole family can swim, wade, snorkel, find that special seashell, or just let the white sand squeak underfoot. When you are in Mexico Beach, you are always within walking distance of the water.
