Horn Island Makes Healthy Beaches List

Horn Island has a new designation. The National Healthy Beaches Campaign, a program dedicated to creating a balance between the recreational use of beaches and maintaining their environmental quality, has named Horn Island to its 2004 List of Certified Healthy Beaches.

Horn Island's pristine white sand beaches, cool water and wildlife have been a source of pride for nearby residents and for the staff of the Gulf Islands National Seashore who manage it.

The island located off the Mississippi Gulf Coast is one of a total of 80 beaches in 17 states and the US Virgin Islands to make the list. The list includes beaches on the East and West coasts and along major bodies of water in the interior United States such as the Great Lakes.

The National Healthy Beaches Campaign is part of the nonprofit Laboratory for Coastal Research at Florida International University in Miami.
