This stretch of the coast is often referred to as the Forgotten Coast since it is an unspoiled stretch of paradise that was “forgotten” during the period when much of Northern Florida’s coastline was developed, and subsequently over-developed.  Mexico Beach, the crowning jewel of this stretch of paradise, is a treasure thanks to the preservation of the sugar white beaches, pristine bays, barrier islands and unobstructed views of the entire coastline. 

Toucan’s remains the premier gulf front restaurant along the coastline making this well-established restaurant an ideal investment opportunity.  Indoor and outdoor seating make Toucan’s THE place to go for tourists and locals alike year-round.  With beach chairs, volleyball courts, a playground, pool tables and live entertainment, Toucan’s is not only a restaurant; but also a destination within itself.  People spend the entire day snacking, drinking and enjoying all that this treasure has to offer and with a gift shop that encompasses over 1,000 square feet, everyone takes a piece of the fun home too!
