Mexico Beach is a nature lover’s paradise. Numerous species of birds call Mexico Beach their home, including bald eagles, osprey, pelicans, and many species of herons and egrets. Five species of sea turtles inhabit our area: loggerhead, green, leatherback, Kemp’s ridley, and hawksbill. Loggerhead turtle hatchlings emerge in the late summer. Dolphins dive through the waves all year long, and it’s not uncommon to see pods of dolphins playing and feeding in local waters. Sea turtles, urchins, starfish, crabs, and sand dollars thrive here as well.
Looking for that perfect souvenir, a unique piece of artwork, antiques, or fine clothing? Mexico Beach offers eclectic collection of locally owned shops and boutiques. There’s something for everyone.
