Municipal Harbor

BSL Municipal Harbor at Night

Whether you're looking for a long term home for your vessel or a weekend get-away to Bay St. Louis, we welcome you to the Bay St. Louis Harbor.  This is the premier location on the MS Gulf Coast with outstanding facilities and service.  Once you arrive you are just a few steps away from excellent food, shops, music, accommodations and southern hospitality that is unmatched.  Bay St. Louis is known for its "Old Town" where Main Street meets Beach Boulevard. The Harbor sits just below the sea wall at this intersection where all of the excitement meets the water.  

There is a reason Bay St. Louis has been named one of the best small coastal towns in America year after year!
