Closest beach to BR for a day trip


What is the closest decent beach to Baton Rouge? I want to take the kids to the beach Sunday. Lake Charles, Biloxi, Gulfport, Pass Christian, Bay St. Louis, or Long Beach? I've been to Biloxi/Gulfport 1000 times, just wondering if there was a nicer beach nearby.

Gulf Shores is the closest decent beach

Has Buccaneer opened back up since Katrina? The beach in front is horrible. Biloxi isn't the greatest but still much better.

The police will go all Danziger Bridge on you if you get on the levee.

This. Easy answer. Once you get out to the island, it really is alot better beach than one is at Biloxi.

Gulfshores is not the answer. Who the hell wants to make a 6.5 round trip drive to spend a few hours in the sand.

It takes about the same amount of time to get out to ship island fwiw.

Come on. Don't you think the kids would enjoy that boat ride out to the island while watching dolphins and such vs another 1 hour plus car ride?

They still have the Mississippi stigma. The gulf shores stigma isn't much better, though.

The beaches in Mississippi, Bay St Louis/Pass, are nice. The water is what sucks. The sand is fine and it's wide open and totally legit. The water is shallow for a long way out and it's kind of browner than you'd like.

If you're going to sit on the beach and drink beer, toss the football or frisbee, run the dogs...BSL is the closest real beach. If you want to get in the water and play in the waves you're going to have to go further east.
