It is a short walk to the top - just 66 steps. It’s half way across the street from the visitors center and the other half the way from the pier. Nice beach area to visit afterwards. The lighthouse is simple and not very big....More
How funny to drive down the road and see the lighthouse right in the median! But the view and photos and beach there are beautiful! You can park free at the Visitor Center or free at the beach. It is on a busy street but...More

The latest information that I have is that tours are Monday - Saturday (weather permitting) 9, 9:15 and 9:30. Admission: Adults $5.00 and Children 2-12 $2.00. No reservation needed. Their phone number is 228-374-3105. There is a Biloxi Visitors Center close to the lighthouse. It is a nice place to visit. They have all kinds of pamphlets and information as well as a movie. We love the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Unless we are staying in a condo; we almost always stay at the smoke free Palace Casino. The buffet is GREAT and our rooms are always GREAT as well.
