Holly Beach

Holly Beach is widley known by the sobriquet "The Cajun Riviera" due to its well-earned reputation as the most pleasant and accessible of all the Louisiana beaches in the entire Pelican State. This beautiful Louisiana beach provides plenty in the way of sun and fun in the surf and the sand, and all in a laid-back atmosphere. Every summer and winter 1,000’s of vacationers and “snow-birds” come to Holly Beach to go swimming, Louisiana fishing and crabbing, sun bathing, bird watching and hunting (in the winter only).

Visitors can rent cabins at the beachfront community at Holly Beach. There is a corner store and plenty of shops where guests can get all the supplies they need for a day of outdoor adventures.

Among the greatest problems in maintenaning the gulf beaches is erosion. Structures like rock levees and tire and brush fences can act as a barrier between the beach and waves. These lie just offshore, so visitors should take note when enjoying Holly Beach’s waters.
