Overall not a good area. The City of Ocean Springs doesn't know how to manage a park or a beach. The area is dirty, the water is dirty, the walks are dirty and floode or not even. There is a lot of trash on beach,...More

We decided to find a nice beach to stop before our trip to NOLA, we chose Biloxi to stop. We arrived here around 5 pm and it's a cloudy day. The weather is nice, we enjoyed our walk here and took some nice pictures.

Beautiful sunsets. Ocean Springs is a quaint lovely town. The beach is a nice place to enjoy the sunsets.

First of all, the picture above is not Front Beach, it's Biloxi Beach looking east toward the Beau Rivage from Sharkshead gift shop. Front Beach is fine for watching sunsets, in fact it has world class sunsets. It is not a beach for swimming, though...More

Having only been to beaches along eastern Florida and Hawaii, of course the water here is very brown comparatively. But it's the gulf coast, it's to be expected. The water was clean, just a bit brown. We went on a weekday morning and were the...More

If you like jogging or walking this is a good place to do it. The sidewalks are wide and there are always people to say hello to. You can use the sidewalk or walk on the sand. The restrooms at Fort Maurapas are usually clean...More

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
