Buras

Geolocation

Buras is a small town on a ribbon of road traversing the water-pocked islands and peninsulas of southernmost Louisiana. That road, Highway 23, goes past some of the best fishing grounds you’ll find on the Gulf of Mexico. Buras is right in the middle of it. The town was founded in the 1840s; 20 years later, it was the site of Civil War battles at Forts Jackson and Philip. Today, the Buras area is known for hauling in much of the state’s oysters. Visitors looking to get a piece of the action can hire one of any number of fishing boats headed towards the Gulf or into the bayous.
