Mexico has 11,122 kilometers (6,911 miles) of coastline, facing the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans (via the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea):


On its western coasts, Mexico is bordered by the Pacific Ocean. Along its northwestern coast is the Gulf of California or Mar de Cortes, which is defined by mainland Mexico and the Baja California peninsula.


On its eastern shores, Mexico faces the Gulf of Mexico between the US-Mexico border and the northeastern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, close to the city of Cancun. Between Cancun and the Mexico-Belize border, the Yucatan Peninsula has coasts in the Caribbean Sea.
