Anyone who’s been to a beach on Mississippi’s Gulf Coast has surely noticed the water’s brownish color. The off-putting hue is enough to keep many out of the water. Others just skip the beach altogether. However, a tropical oasis with white sand and pristine water can be found just several miles off the coast on Ship Island. Take a look:
