Disappointing Fort (Fort Morgan is easily the best in the greater area). So much history seems to have been lost on this island due in large part to Camille and Katrina. The beach does offer some fantastic solitude though. Lots of umbrellas and chairs set...More

If you don't have a boat or a friend with one the Ship Island Ferry is your only way. Great to walk in solitude around a natural Island, or soak up some History in the fort, nice tours offered.

Ship Island has no homes to rent. Besides, everyone must leave by the last evening ferry. Biloxi, Mississippi is where you should be looking for to Rent.
