It is a short walk to the top - just 66 steps. It’s half way across the street from the visitors center and the other half the way from the pier. Nice beach area to visit afterwards. The lighthouse is simple and not very big....More

This is a well-maintained lighthouse located on Beach Blvd., Biloxi's main thoroughfare. And, if you go at night, you will see the light operating.

Beautiful lighthouse set in the neutral ground right in front of the beach. You can see many places from the too. If you cant climb alot of stairs to the top you can still enjoy from the bottom.

We are sentimental people and to see this was wonderful for us. Everyone was coming up to get photos of each other with the sunset in the background. So inviting

If you love lighthouses, this is a must see. Parking across from it to take pictures. If you want to capture some great pictures, go to the top of the Beau Rivage parking deck, and shoot from there!!!!!

This is worth seeing and hard to miss if you are driving on US 90. It stands right in the middle of the Road. I can remember seeing it as a child. It still looks great.

Just another light house. Nothing special to see here. Nothing unique about this location or history.
