An Island In the Sun
Just a few miles off the mainland, you'll discover Mississippi's treasured barrier islands: Ship, Cat, Round, Horn, and Petit Bois. Forming part of Gulf Islands National Seashore, these islands, with pristine gulf water and sparkling-white beaches, are known for their remoteness.
These islands are only accessible by private boat or passenger ferry, but are well worth the trip. Swimming, fishing, boating, hiking, nature photography, bird watching, and exploring are just some of the activities enjoyed on the islands.
