Gulf Coast Thread: Where Does The White Sand/Blue Water Start?


When traveling east down the gulf coast, where does the white sands and clear ocean start, and the shitty brown sand/brown water end? Seems like Dauphin Island is kind of on the fence.

I was in Biloxi not too long ago and it's definitely more Grand Isle-esque. So my guess would be somewhere after that, but before Gulf Shores.

Thoughts?

Gulf Shores.

Doesn't get truly white sand/clear water until Destin IMO

Around Navarre Beach to be safe.

All locations along the Emerald Coast can get murky after a storm or heavy rainfall. Your best bet for clear water is during dry conditions with a Bermuda high hanging overhead for several days (in May or June to avoid seaweed).

Everything past Mobile bay is the same as far as sand goes. The water gets clear as you head east but can be clear from Gulf Shores on depending on the weather and all. I've seen it clearest just past Destin but I've seen it very clear in Gulf Shores twice this year and when I was in Destin the following week it wasn't near as nice. So it just depends.

Dauphin Island, actually for white sand.

Blue/green water can be Dauphin Island at times, but for consistently blue/greenish Gulf Shores or Orange Beach. Depends on how much filth is coming out the Mississippi River and Mobile Bay and which way the current and wind is headed

Pensacola. Gulf shores looks nothing like Pensacola.

Yeah, I'm ok with the Gulfshores sand and water. It is not as huge of a difference between this and Destin as alot of people tend to make it out to be.
