Gulf Islands National Seashore

Gulf Islands National Seashore is a park rich in natural resources. There are sparkling blue waters, magnificent snowy-white beaches, fertile coastal marshes, and beautiful winding nature trails.  

More than 80 percent of the park is submerged lands teeming with marine life. Marshes collect fresh rainwater and support diverse communities of plants and animals. Live oak forests are home to resident and migrating bird populations.

Millions of visitors enjoy America’s largest National Seashore every year. The National Park Service serves as guardian to these precious natural resources and asks that visitors treat their national park with care. With your support, special places like Gulf Islands National Seashore will continue to delight, educate and inspire future generations.
