Mexico Beach Fishing, Parks & Recreation

Searching for that ultimate fishing destination? Then Mexico Beach may be your place in the sun. You can drop your line off of the Mexico Beach Fishing Pier at 37th Street or you can enjoy the opportunities provided by Mexico Beach Canal Park. The park offers several fishing spots from which to choose. You can wade out into the surf for some of the best surf fishing around. If you prefer the shade, fish from the Mexico Beach Canal under the park's sheltered pavilion with picnic tables and benches. Or make your way out onto the rocks of the park's jetty to cast for the big one!

There are convenient dune walkovers at City Park and Sunset Park and both provide easy access to the beach. Running along 20th street to 22nd street you will see Municipal Park on Paradise Path. This park is outfitted with a mixture of features to enjoy the day. You can engage in a game of shuffleboard, take part in a game of tennis, push your kids on the swings, or enjoy a BBQ or picnic with the whole family. You can play sports throughout the day and in just minutes be back on the beach for a cool dip in the Gulf of Mexico's emerald green water. There's always a beach volleyball game underway on the beach behind Toucan's Restaurant. Or you can rent a waverunner or go parasailing on the beach behind The El Governor Motel.

Mexico Beach is the perfect place for you to enjoy water sports and activities. There's everything from sailing, kayaking, surfing, canoeing, skim boarding, windsurfing, snorkeling and boating. Enjoy the type of activities you are into, or try something new! You will definitely find something to do that will peak your interest!
