The Honey Island Swamp (Marais de l'Île-de-Miel) is a marshland, located on the Pearl River wildlife management area and managed by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana.  The swamp is bordered on the south by Lake Borgne, on the east by the Pearl River and the west by the West Pearl River. It is one of the least-altered river swamps in the United States.

Travel by boat to see ancient cypress trees garlanded with Spanish moss and an abundance of plant and animal life including alligators.  Tour boat ride.  (Box lunches and water provided).
