It is our understanding from locals that the beach is actually manmade and that the water is not safe for swimming. Not certain that no swimming is a fact, but we did not try it because the water was too cool while we were there....More

Wonderful beach to walk, enjoy the sunset, and take in the Goings on around town. Met some very interesting people walking their dogs who stopped to talk. Dogs definitely bring out friendliness in people!

Gulfport Beach is not crowded. It has many amenities, like volleyball nets and picnic tables. Lots of free parking on the street. It's right across the street from downtown Gulfport, which is full of bars, restaurants and shops.

Nice small beach. Fairly clean and certainly not busy when we were there first part of December. When staying in Gulfport, it's really close and easy to get to. Didn't go in the water, just laid in the sun.

You wouldn't expect to find a beach on a bay front, but it is here. Small but good in nice little town. No waves, but good sand.
