Mexico Beach offers something that most places don’t: artificial reefs in the Gulf of Mexico that are teeming with game fish! Thanks to the efforts of the Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Association (MBARA), over 150 reefs have been deployed since 1997. While some of the reefs were displaced by Hurricane Michael in October of 2018, many are still intact and perfect spots for making unforgettable fishing memories. A directory of GPS numbers for these artificial reefs can be found on the MBARA website.
