Pascagoula offers a unique spin on one of the many public beaches found on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The City of Pascagoula is proud of their Beach Park,which encompasses 14 acres including a white sand beach, 1000 foot fishing pier, green space park with a playground, splash pad, picnic benches, walking trail and much more. In 2015, the city named a bridge over Baptiste Bayou on the beach after their hometown musician, Jimmy Buffett. Shortly after, a stretch of the beach was also dedicated and renamed Buffett Beach.
The Point is another useful public facility on the beach which can be found at the west end of Beach Boulevard. The Point is a boat launch with ample trailer parking, has nice piers for loading/unloading your boat, and many times you fill see people fishing from the piers. This launch is quick access to the Mississippi Sound and makes a short boat ride to some of the many barrier islands. On any given day, you will find that locals also make this site their lunch break location. The views you get when sitting in your car looking south at the water or west to the shipyard watching the boats gives you a calming feeling.
