“It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere.”

LandShark Landing & Marina (located at Margaritaville Biloxi Casino)—on the eastern tip of Biloxi’s Back Bay—takes fun seriously. Since opening on May 22, 2012, Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville philosophy and Alan Jackson’s lyrics to It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere have inspired them to stand out as a marina, casino and entertainment venue. Margaritaville Biloxi made gaming history on June 7th when they became the only place where guests can try their luck outdoors (on select days), while enjoying a beautiful view of the marina and Back Bay.
Just outside LandShark Landing’s doors is the marina, complete with food and drinks situated at the water’s edge. Guests can sip their favorite frozen brew or enjoy a delicious dish from LandShark Landing bar with live entertainment on weekends. Take advantage of other weekend perks like their seaplane docked at the marina—take a ride up and down the coastline for a fee—and give a toast to Margaritaville Biloxi at five o’clock (everyday) when the cannons fire off.
Jimmy Buffett said he was thrilled when Margaritaville opened. “Biloxi has been on my songline for a long, long time. I made my professional singing debut here back in the late 60s,” states Buffett. “I have been fortunate to do many things in my career, but coming full circle to Biloxi with Margaritaville, surely is one of the highlights.”
