People call Mississippi’s 44-miles of coastline the Secret Coast. Nestled between the sugar sands of Gulf Shores and the culinary mecca of New Orleans, Mississippi’s Gulf Coast is a beautiful blend of both. With the abundance of natural beauty, biking Coastal Mississippi takes you from picturesque oak trees to uncrowded shorelines. The communities are unique and undiscovered destinations, offering relaxation, adventure, and variety. They offer a bit of everything from delicious food, rich culture, and natural beauty. What they don’t have is a signature trail along the coast.
Our biking guide to Coastal Mississippi highlights four varied and distinctive rides through four equally unique cities: Ocean Springs, Biloxi, Bay St Louis, and Pascagoula. In total, we highlight almost 44 miles of riding, one mile of biking for each mile of Mississippi Coastline. Of course, it’s not all oceanfront riding, but there’s enough for you to fill your camera roll. You’ll also discover the flavor of each town and savor some fantastic food along the way. Hopefully, when you’re done reading this piece, you’ll add biking to your list of things to do on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
