As we end another great year on the Beach, let me begin by telling all the residents and guests Thank You for doing their job by putting litter in its place.
We have completed this past year with a couple of Tideland Grants (1) Dune Grass Planting along the twenty six miles of our coastline and a CIAP Grant covering (2) open channels along the beach in Gulfport and Biloxi.
With the start of next year, we will be putting in (4) more handicap accessible Beach Shade Structures along the Pedestrian Path Way (Boardwalk) for shade. We have (21) bon fire pits along the beach in Harrison County which can be reserved. The permit costs $5.00, with a $25.00 clean-up deposit required. Please contact the Sand Beach Office between the hours of 7:00am-3:30pm Monday thru Friday for a copy of the permit application or download one by clicking here.
In closing, I would like you to know that our beaches are tested several times a week for water quality issues and if we encounter a problem, signs are posted in accordance with State and Federal requirements. If you would like to check recent or the current status of the Beach Monitoring Program please check the following website https://www.deq.state.ms.us/.
We hope that you will enjoy yourself while spending time on are beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast.
