There’s nothing better than a day at the beach. And the Coastal Mississippi is just the place to kick off your shoes, put your feet in the sand and relax awhile. With sixty-two miles of scenic shoreline, it’s easy to find a perfect place to set up for a day in the sun.

Care to switch up the sand you’re on? Hop on a Ship Island Excursion from Gulfport Small Craft Harbor or Margaritaville in Biloxi to Ship Island, part of Gulf Islands National Seashore. 12 miles offshore from Gulfport, Ship Island offers gorgeous Gulf waters for swimming, sunbathing, shelling and more. In fact, a chain of Gulf Coast islands, including Ship Island, limits the amount of strong waves reaching the mainland beaches, creating calm, gentle waters across the Coast. Ship Island - The perfect Coastal Mississippi Getaway.

Paddle sports anyone? There’s more than enough water around here to keep a paddle sports party going. Or should we say flowing?

And if you want to do a little bird watching, stop by our designated nesting areas for the “Least Terns” species and grab a photo.
