Coastal Mississippi’s tri-county region is a multi-faceted destination filled with various avenues, backroads, scenic coastline, and waterways to explore. From arts & culture and headline entertainment to boutique shopping and outdoor activities, we offer something for every type of visitor and every type of budget. At this time, visitors can still enjoy most fresh water and salt water opportunities that extend beyond the affected areas in the region, including kayaking, paddle boarding, excursions to barrier islands, fishing experiences and parasailing adventures.
It is safe to consume seafood purchased in restaurants and from seafood dealers. Seafood products are monitored and tested regularly.
As the region is situated along the Gulf of Mexico, natural occurrences that affect the water quality do take place. Coastal Mississippi is taking every measure to protect its residents, visitors and natural resources in tandem with official state agencies. The safety of our visitors and residents is of the utmost importance, therefore we are dedicated to providing timely and accurate information to travelers.
