Want to plan a couple’s getaway? Whether you want to have new experiences, relax in luxury or a little of both, there are plenty of romantic ways to spend your time in Coastal Mississippi.

Of course, deciding what to do during your trip may be the hardest part. With that in mind, here’s a look at just one way to get in a little romance (alongside some adventure and relaxation, too) during your visit to Coastal Mississippi.

Start off your weekend getaway with a full stomach by sharing lunch at Mosaic Tapas Restaurant in Ocean Springs.

Take a sunset cruise.

Is there anything more romantic than watching the sunset over the water together during a scenic cruise aboard a 40-foot Catalina sailboat? During the more than two-hour private cruise, which is offered by North Star Sailing Charters and departs out of Gulfport, you can take in a stunning sunset as well as magnificent views of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, barrier islands and local marine life. Food and drinks, including adult beverages, are welcome, so be sure to bring a cooler for a unique and charming date night on the water.

Let the good times roll at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino.

Even if you’re not staying at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, you can take advantage of all it has to offer after you return from your cruise. The resort is home to a variety of noteworthy restaurants, like Salt and Ivy, as well as unique lounges, like Eight75, where you can grab a late-night meal or one-of-a-kind drink before trying your hand at the slot machines and poker tables in its popular casino.

Go for a scenic horseback ride.

What’s romance without a little adventure? During your couple’s getaway, you can get a new experience together while enjoying the gorgeous scenery of Coastal Mississippi by horseback during a morning guided trail ride in Saucier. The fun and relaxing hour-long rides, offered by appointment only on the weekends, take you through 43 acres of private countryside as well as a beautiful pine forest in Harrison County. The horses are friendly and well-trained, making this an ideal outing for first-timers as well as more experienced riders looking to get back in the saddle.

Relax on the beach.

With 26 miles of gorgeous white-sand beaches to choose from, you can’t go to Coastal Mississippi and not spend an afternoon exploring its coastline. In Pass Christian and Long Beach, you can find more private stretches, perfect for taking a romantic stroll together and sharing a picnic. There’s also the option of taking the ferry over to Ship Island, where you can relax on its pristine beaches and swim in clear Gulf waters. In addition, for those couples hoping for a chance to relax in style without having to tote around the usual beach gear, you can also rent a luxury cabana, as well as arrange pop-up sunset dinners and more, through Coastal Cabanas & Company.

Have dinner at The Sycamore House.

The Sycamore House in Bay St Louis is an ideal spot for couples to have dinner in a romantic setting thanks to the mature oak trees and twinkling lights that surround its charming outdoor dining space as well as its mouthwatering menu. The quaint fine dining restaurant offers twists on Southern Cajun classics such as shrimp remoulade as well as other unique offerings like Ropa Vieja, which is a Cuban-style brisket, in addition to more familiar fare like pastas, seafood, burgers and more. Just be sure to save room for something sweet to split, like the chocolate oblivion torte or brandied cherry brownie, and pair it with a bottle of wine from The Sycamore House’s large selection.
