Louisiana beach vacation? Why not!

However, after quick research it becomes clear that there are many amazing options for a perfect weekend – there are plenty of sandy ocean and lake beaches near New Orleans and Baton Rouge! Some Gulf beaches are quite popular, such as Holly Beach in Cameron or Rutherford Beach in Creole. In fact, there are many others that are lesser known to the public, which means fewer crowds for you. LA beaches are perfect for fishing, sunbathing and, due to strong winds, kiting or windsurfing.
