Welcome to the City of Diamondhead, where living is easy!

Conveniently located between Slidell, Louisiana and Biloxi, Mississippi, we are Mississippi’s newest city. We have a residential population of 8,400 – and we believe once you visit, you’ll want to stay forever!  As a resident or visitor, we have something for everyone. Parks and recreational opportunities are plentiful and with our planned community environment, real estate options, amenities and the best people around, Diamondhead is a “one-of-a-kind” place to live on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

  • Living in Diamondhead means that you can do something all day, every day. You've got tennis, golf, swimming, running, biking, fishing, kayaking, shopping, dining, the performing arts and even flying. Our family loves it here.

  • Diamondhead is a great place to live, whether you’re an active retiree or a raising a young family. It has the friendliest people, beautiful year-round weather, affordable housing in a resort community, and it’s conveniently located close to Hancock County’s major employers.

  • We were fortunate enough to have all three of our daughters grow up in Diamondhead. From the infant, toddler & preschool years to the elementary, middle and high school years, there was always some way for them to be engaged in the community and the community reached out to support and include them. They grew up with an incredible sense of belonging.

  • Pets are part of the family. And I couldn't agree more, which is why I live in Diamondhead, a pet-friendly community.
