Holly Beach (French: Plage-d'Houx), is an unincorporated community in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, United States. It is also known as the "Cajun Riviera" (French: La Rivière Acadienne). It is known for crabbing and a drive on the beach. Holly Beach has many beach-front cabins called "camps". Because of the threat of hurricanes, these cabins were "built-to-be-rebuilt" by its residents. Holly Beach is part of the Lake Charles metropolitan area, which has a population of 194,138.
