Walk, run, or bike this sidewalk along Front Beach in Ocean Springs. This is a great way to view the Biloxi Bay Bridge, Deer Island, and the Mississippi Sound.

Tired of walking on a boring treadmill? Then come walk or bike along Front Beach in Ocean Springs. It is a very popular walking path because of its beauty and amenities. Fort Marpaus Park is located about halfway down the path and has a shaded pavilion, benches, and restrooms. There are two piers and several volleyball nets right off of the path as well, so if you aren't in a hurry, go explore those before continuing down the path. The turn around point is at the boat launch at the end of the beach.

The best place to park is on Front Beach Drive, between the Ocean Springs Yacht Club and the nearby convenience store, but if those spots are full, you can park next to the concrete barriers along the beach, except in no parking zones.
