The barrier islands in the chain are, from east to west: Dauphin Island, Petit Bois Island, Horn Island, Ship Island, and Cat Island. The islands are low sand bodies situated on a relatively broad Holocene sand platform that extends 70 mi ( km) from Dauphin Island on the east to Cat Island on the west.   Dauphin Island is a popular tourist destination. MISSISSIPPI: Gov. Haley Barbour says oil is hitting the state for the first time. Barbour said Tuesday that a two-mile long, three-feet wide strand of caramel-colored oil has been found on Petit Bois Island, a barrier island . West Ship Island is a bit easier to access since there is a ferry that runs to the island; however, camping is not allowed. Additionally, West Ship Island is home to Fort Massachusetts, which is available for touring. No matter which portion of the island you visit, there’s plenty to see, including dolphins.
