Front Beach, Ocean Springs

Though Front Beach is a pet friendly beach, your little darling would have to be kept on a leash at all times. And you would need to pick up after them if they make any mess. Front beach offers stunning vistas of the Ocean Springs-Biloxi Bay Bridge and of the Ocean Springs Harbor. There’s an 800 ft. boardwalk at the harbor where you and your pupper can go for a stroll enjoying the sights and sounds of the surroundings. There’s a pavilion at the end of the pier from where you and your furbaby can watch a sunset. Because a trip to a beach is not complete until you watch that perfect beach sunset.

Waveland Beach, Bay St Louis

Waveland Beach is a beach that allows dogs to visit as long as they are on a leash. It offers about four miles of pristine sandy shores and serene vibes. The best thing about this beach is that it is almost never too crowded. So, if you’re looking to spend some time in tranquility, just lazing around at the beach with your pooch, then Waveland Beach is the place for you. You can even have a nice little picnic with your canine family member.

Hancock County Beaches, Hancock County

Hancock County is located between Bay St. Louis and Waveland, and is home to a number of pet friendly beaches.
