Relaxing

It was a nice relaxing afternoon. Picked up a lot of shells and took some amazing pictures. Will recommend for fishing and long walks.

If you want white sand, noise, pushy people, & spoiled screaming kids don't go to Holly Beach. It is a NATURAL beach. They don't clean it off, so you are able to find shells, driftwood, nets, floats, seaglass. Great beach for combing & relaxing. If you go on an off day (not weekend or holiday,) it is quiet & peaceful.... More

Sarah, with the SCA at the National Wildlife office told us not to miss Holly Beach, that it was shell heaven - and oh wow, it was. The outgoing tide left all kinds of shells, even a dead fish or two. It was a shell hunter's heaven on a glorious day following the Creole Nature Trail. We didn't see any... More

We have made Holly Beach a tradition. We usually try to go at Thanksgiving. After going for years before and after the hurricanes it is still one of our favorite places to spend a quiet vacation as a family. It truly is a place to relax and get away from everything. There is not a store in town any longer,... More

If you've been to white sand beaches and boardwalks on the East Coast and are expecting the same from Holly Beach, you're in for a disappointment. This place is not very clean. There are no boardwalks, rides, or games. You drive into town and right on to the beach and set up your accommodations. We drove our car on to... More

Holly Beach itself is expansive. If you're searching for white sands, and crystal waters, this is not where to go. There's some ocean debris on the beach, and plenty of wildlife. I've swam in 2 Oceans, 2 seas and 2 gulfs, and have never seen as many seashells. Kids loved it. As an additional note, there's more than one beach... More

We were not able to make it to a beach at a more trendy Gulf location, so we chose Holly Beach, a tradition in my husband's Cajun family. The beach itself is not clean, and there are people driving all over it in trucks. My kids enjoyed playing there all morning, but I was glad we were leaving in the... More

We had a restaurant destination not too far from Holly Beach so we deviated a little and took in Holly Beach. Not much there today, however a storm had just come thought and the area was without electricity. Several beach homes on both the beach and across the highway from the beach. Just a quite beach area and not a... More
