Mexico Beach is a city in Bay County which is located just 20 miles from Panama City. It has all the splendor of the Florida Panhandle but still retains the old world Florida charm. It is a small coastal community which is tranquil, peaceful and abounds in natural beauty. Just like all the beaches in the Florida Panhandle the ocean here is a crystal clear emerald and the beaches have sugary white sand with shells and sand dollars, the treasures of the sea lining the shores. When one thinks of Mexico beach the only word that comes to mind is breathtaking. The local residents have a friendly and laidback attitude which adds to the beauty and serenity of this small town with a big heart.
But don't let the small town feel fool you, the area is fast growing into a bustling economy with ambitious residential projects coming up in the area. It would be unfair to go to Mexico beach and not indulge in the myriad of recreational activities that the area has to offer. One of these is fishing, since you are at the Florida panhandle what can you expect besides the best fishing experience. You can rent your own boat, easily available at the beach or the marina or head to the City Canal park which is a favorite locale among tourists and residents alike for its abundant fishing opportunities and spellbinding view. You could also use the city pier or the edge of the surf line but if you are looking for something extraordinary then you should take one of the deep sea fishing charters. The water is just warm enough for a refreshing swim after you've spent a long lazy afternoon getting a sun tan. Sunset is a whole different experience at Mexico Beach besides seeing the colors of heaven erupt at the horizon you also get to see dolphins come out for their evening session of frolicking. The community of Mexico Beach is determined to preserve and protect its natural bounty so the Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Associations has been established. It is a body responsible for locating ecologically friendly reefs at various sea levels for improved angling. When the sun goes down you can visit one of the many restaurants in the area for mouthwatering local and international delicacies or show off your tan at one of the night clubs in the neighboring areas.
Some of the popular eating joints at Mexico Beach are Amanda's Bistro for round the clock dining experience. You can go to this restaurant for all three meals and even an afternoon tea. For the freshest sea food served in delicate sauces head to the Fish House Restaurant. Mango Marley's is a perfect place to hang out with friends, the wings are delicious the beer cold and there is always a good game on TV. For the best breakfast at Mexico beach head to Sharon's Cafe, home of the giant happy face pancakes. Regan's Pub and Oyster Bar has a casual fun filled atmosphere and good sea food.
