    Great for dogs, no amenaties

    Great beach for running, fetching and swimming. We see mullet jumping, dolphins and sea birds aplenty. There are sidewalks and a fishing pier and beach volleyball but no stores or showers. Lots of room to run and play for sure with beautiful white sand. Be respectful of nesting birds and sometimes sea turtle nests.

    needs more restaurants and solid parking but good anyway

    Not closed to dogs as previously reviewed. White sand brown water but hey it's sandy. Some owner didn't pick up after their dog but otherwise a non crowded beach for your dog to play in.

    Leash Law

    BSL and Waveland beaches are wonderful if you want a bit of solitude. They are maintained beautifully I think, however the leash law is NOT enforced. Sometimes when I am walking my dog obeying the rules I have to avoid those whom are not and it is a question of 'fairness.' What is good for one should be good for all.

    BSL/Waveland Beaches - Feb 2015

    Miles and miles of dog friendly beaches in Bay Saint Louis and Waveland. Shallow water, wide, white sand and very few people at least in January. Great place for my dog to romp.

    What can we do?!? - June 2014

    My dog loves the beach. I can't think of an outing he loves more. Closing beaches to pets is going to turn off a lot of visitors. What can we do to stop this?

    The Government is Taking Over - June 2014

    Thanks to Hancock County Board of Supervisors, dogs will no longer be allowed on the Hancock County beaches starting next month, 13 July 2014. So sad, but true.

    Nice beach - Sept 2013

    This is a nice little quite beach. To be honest there are nicer beaches a little further down the road but i'm not sure if you can have the pooch along. I will say though the only parking we found was at the intersection of Terrace Ave and N Beach rd

    Off season experience

    Took my dog to Waveland, MS based on bringfido.com suggestion, as they have no dog restricted beaches. Went in late Feb. Weather was 60s but water felt nice. Not many people around the beaches this time of year, but my dog had a blast! There are miles of beachfront sidewalks if you decide to stay out of the sand/water. Nice area but not many touristy things around...
