We rode from the condo down to west beach. What a beautiful ride to a gorgeous beach. The water is clear and the sand sugary. Great shell hunting and saw people surf fishing so that must be profitable as well. Dauphin island is the best...More

We spend a cool afternoon here. It was only about 75 degrees out, but it was so nice to relax on the beach and watch the boats go by. There were a number of birds feeding in the water near by.. interesting to watch.

Was on a short getaway and was taken to the island. The view from the beach was amazing. I have found my new happy place.

Well. I had hyped up this place so much that I was disappointed. It's a small little fishing-like village. Not what I was expecting. They had a lot of camps for sale or rent. I guess these hurricanes have a few people scared near the...More

We ended up here at the end of our road trip from New Orleans. The island was very quiet, the beach was quieter with only about 6-8 people, the water was nice and warm and the sand was soft. We visited on a Monday and...More

We had a family reunion last 2 weeks of June at 4 houses along Bienville with about 50 or so folks and no one had a problem. Ages were 3 to 85.
