Picnic on the beach

With twenty-six miles of soft, white sand beaches, there are plenty of spots where you and your date can enjoy a romantic picnic. The smaller coastal communities of Pass Christian and Long Beach offer quieter beaches that are perfect for romantic walks or picnics.


Want something a little more adventurous? Rent a kayak from Everything Kayak and paddle about 10 minutes offshore to Deer Island, located just South of Biloxi, and enjoy a more private beach setting. 


Experience coastal nightlife

Nightlife on the Coast can be as exciting or laid back as you’d like. Whether you enjoy an energetic club atmosphere or a more casual beachside bar, there are tons of fun options to choose from. Let the jazz musicians at 13th St. Jazz Bistro set the mood to your date, or dance the night away at Coast Nightclub at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino.
