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!

This beach park is the PERFECT adjunct to our wonderful walking bridge to Biloxi (thank you Mayor Connie). Parking is never a problem for me by going way early or near sunset. The boat ramp area is busy on weekends but we retired people get...More

Nice quiet beach for sunset walks, great for some time on the beach, however not much to do on the beach. If you want adult beverages you have to head back to downtown (5 min drive) to one of the many bars and grills.
