The first time many people go down to the beaches in Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana, they are amazed by the vast open areas. Literally, you can stand on the beach and look down one way and look down the other and not see anything but the Gulf, the beaches and the people with you. You see, our beaches are unspoiled by condos and loads of buildings. It's quite spectacular. These beaches found along the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road which winds through an area known as Louisiana's Outback.
Here, you can load up on shells, and even learn a thing or two from our interactive shelling brochure! Yes, complete with a check list.
