I have to say this was pretty but the beach is very shelly-meaning lots of crushed shells upon entry into the water. Definitely not bare feet friendly. This was not my favorite beach-but I didn't find one that I really did like in Mississippi. However-it...More

Ocean Springs front beach has the best view day or night. Not so long that you can’t walk it, and long enough to get a little exercise. There are a few piers for fishing too. A park for the kids with a splash pad and...More

Beaches were cleaner than Biloxi by far. Children could enjoy sand and then rinse off. Splash pad across the street that was kid and dog friendly. Playground with shady picnic tables across from beach with bathrooms. Piers to walk out on to fish. Three views...More

The beach was pristine clean and easy walking access from the town. There is a volleyball net, but no other conveniences or services. No drinks stands, umbrella rentals, lifeguard, etc. Bring your own stuff!

It is a sand beach. The sand is not sparkling white nor is it dark and coarse. The water gradually becomes deeper as you move out from the beach. You'll see shells and crabs! You will see boats pass and shore birds. My... More
