Gone Fishin’

From our crystal blue waters and white sand beaches to our hometown feel and the restaurants and shops our visitors love, Mexico Beach has a lot to offer vacationers looking for a gateway to a simpler, more relaxed life. But we aren’t kidding ourselves. We know why many of you come to enjoy our shores–or more accurately, what’s just offshore.

Kingfish, grouper and snapper, just to name a few, make up the vast population of saltwater sport fish that can be found hanging around our 125 artificial reef systems. We’ve got everything you need, from bait and tackle to great charter boats, to get out there and catch the Big One. So, you get a line, we’ll get a pole, and make some memories fishin’ the Unforgettable Coast!
