You do not want to miss taking a walk out on the public pier during the day and at night. You can see plenty of fish swimming around the pilings of the pier. There is also water access on the pier. Great place to try...More

Whether you are on the pier or on the beach, stunning view of sunset. This was the night before Hurricane Gordon blew through, so a few clouds. Such a relaxing place to sit and stare at the sky

I was told to go to Mexico Beach as a awesome beach to chill and enjoy. But when we got to the pier we REALLY got surprised. Decide for yourself!

The Mexico Beach Public Pier is a wooden pier where families can stroll and watch the fishermen and pelicans. Great place to watch the sunset too!
