Holly Beach Things to Do
Holly Beach is a small unincorporated town along Louisiana Highways 27 and 83 in Cameron Parish in Southwestern Louisiana on the Gulf of Mexico. Getting an estimate of the population here is difficult. The town has been flooded by hurricanes 4 or 5 times since the 1950s and each time the town rebuilds. There is no sewage system here so to live here you must sign a waiver. The town has a number of rental cabins available that are frequently painted in bright garish colors. The homes are all built on stilts to protect against storm surge from the gulf. Holly Beach is sometimes referred to as the "Cajun Riviera" and was the subject of a song "Under the Boardwalk" by Kenny Thibodeaux and the Jokers, which is a parody of the popular song "Under the Boardwalk" by the Drifters.Related to:

Holly Beach General
Favorite thing: I was raised in Holly Beach, so I consider it my home. It was destroyed by the Hurricane, so there is nothing left of it now, but I know that we will come back and once again become the partying capital in Louisiana. We are slowly cleaning it will take a while but we will get it together. Prayers and thoughts to all who lost everything.
Fondest memory: My favorite time in Holly Beach is when i was 9, and I just remember being on the beach all day and played under all the camps. I ate until i thought i was going to pop. Holly Beach is just a great Cajun Hangout and i miss it already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Related to:

Drive on to the beach
Favorite thing: Your allowed to drive onto the beach with your car and park it over there. So if you don't like walking a long way or paying parking fees just drive on to the beach and park your car.
Fondest memory: Because we could park the car on the beach we had cool water in reach from our cooler in the back of the car and didn't have to carry it with us to the beach, just great for lazy dutch people.
What also was a nice thing is that we didn't get stuck in the sand when driving on and of the beach. Some did get stuck but other beach guest helped them by pushing them out.
