Fishing for a Gulf Coast Experience at Historic Grand Isle in Louisiana
If your idea of a beach vacation is flashy resorts, skimpy swimsuits, and cabana boys, Grand Isle is not for you. If, however, you long for unspoiled and undeveloped beaches, salty sea breezes, and the best deep sea fishing and migratory birdwatching in the Central Gulf, then Grand Isle just might be your cup of oyster stew. About the sea life—oysters, crabs, and the 280 species of fish who call this corner of the Gulf home—there are guides who can help you catch, clean, cook, and eat them. If you’d rather have someone else do all the work, stop at Spahr’s on Highway 90. There are plenty of places to stay. To feel like a bonafide Gulf coaster, rent a fish camp or beach cabin through Cheramie’s Landing.
