Most People Have No Idea There’s A Drowned Island Hiding In The Mississippi Gulf

Just off Mississippi’s coast lie five barrier islands, but that’s not how it used to be. Many years ago, there was another island – the Isle of Caprice, which was located between Ship Island and Horn Island. For several years, tourists traveled from all over the country to visit the Isle of Caprice; it was even dubbed the “Monte Carlo of the South.” However, after a few years and a series of man-made and natural events, the island completely vanished.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
