Biloxi Beach, Mississippi

From Charles McCool of McCool Travel

Biloxi Beach is part of the longest manmade stretch of beach in the United States—26 miles in length and 200 feet deep—and is both currently and historically prominent.

Plentiful water and beach activities attract travelers from around the world and the Mississippi Gulf Coast’s most popular casinos tempt most visitors. Devote time for a boat ride to a barrier island, along with the Mississippi sound, or just around Biloxi Bay.

Savor fresh innovative cuisine at places like White Pillars (chef/owner Sumrall is a 2020 James Beard best chef nominee) and Le Bakery (creative Asian/French fusion). Also, find the world’s most expensive Waffle House to be built.

In addition to the gorgeous beach, Biloxi Beach is historically recognized for being a location of wade-ins during the US Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, the beautiful Biloxi Lighthouse (climb it before 9:30am), the birthplace of Barq’s Root Beer, former Seafood Capital of the World (take the highly-rated Biloxi Shrimping Trip and visit the Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum), the first capital of New World France, and home to evidence of Native American presence to 8000 BC.
