The Mexico Beach Community Development Council would like to thank you for visiting our website (and hopefully our white-sand shores!). We are here to answer any questions you may have about our little slice of paradise on the Gulf of Mexico. Our goal is to help visitors and locals alike learn more about our area and make great memories on what we like to call The Unforgettable Coast®.

The Mexico Beach CDC is dedicated to helping make Mexico Beach a great place for visitors and residents by promoting tourism and positive experiences in Mexico Beach. The CDC is funded by tourism bed-tax collected in the Mexico Beach taxing district. The board of directors is comprised of nine members appointed by the Bay County Board of County Commissioners. Three of the members are collectors of the tourist development tax, two members represent the tourist-related businesses in the area, two members represent Mexico Beach residents, and two members are elected officials. The board meets once per month, on the third Thursday of the month, unless otherwise stated.
