The city of Diamondhead, which began decades ago as Hancock County’s haven for snowbirds, has matured into a thriving community with a resort-style atmosphere. Residents enjoy fishing and boating in the nearby Jourdan River and its tributaries, golf, swimming in one of several neighborhood pools, and various functions at the Diamondhead Country Club. Convenient access to a nearby airstrip allows many homeowners the opportunity to keep small planes in their own backyards.
Diamondhead also boasts a variety of restaurants, a large grocery store, medical clinics, specialty shops, and even a bowling alley. Small lakes, a large park, and curvy, tree-lined boulevards add even more charm to a community that feels more like a large, friendly neighborhood than a small city.
