Bay St Louis, Mississippi

Just 50 miles from New Orleans, the beach at Bay St Louis is Mississippi's hidden gem. Visit the quaint seaside town to shop and enjoy a casual meal with a bay view. Watch the tour boats as they explore the bay and fishing boats in search of the day's catch. Kayaks are available at the boat rental shops, so you can paddle the water trails. Try your luck at fishing from the Jimmy Rutherford Fishing Pier, where you can fish for speckled trout year-round.

The historic southern town of Long Beach, MS, is only 20 minutes from the bay. Visitors can enjoy great food, shopping, water activities, and casino gambling in nearby Biloxi. For a wild and rustic beach, you can charter a boat or take the ferry to Ship Island, 12 miles off the coast. Visitors can tour historic Fort Massachusetts, swim and relax on a quiet, untouched beach. The beach offers outdoor showers, a concession store, picnic area, and chairs are available for rent.
