As you cruise along Beach Boulevard, stop at the pullouts to gaze at sandy beaches, sea grasses, bayous and marshes, and take a deep breath of the sea breeze. Bay St. Louis is a fish and shellfish nursery; you may spot feasting porpoises, pelicans and seagulls in the water as well as sandpipers and terns along the shore.
