The Best Beaches in Alabama

The Best Beaches in Alabama

Alabama’s coastline features several beaches, each with their own character. Take a look at the selection below and pick your favorite.

  • 1. Gulf Shores Main Public Beach

    The Gulf Shores area consists of several beaches, of which the Main Public Beach, also called Gulf Place, is a favorite among visitors and locals alike. The beach is close to the town’s many seafood restaurants, bars, and shops. What’s more, the public facilities have been upgraded at the beach, providing all you need for a comfortable and funfilled day.

  • 2. Orange Beach

    Orange Beach is set on the easternmost point of Alabama’s Gulf coast, bordering Florida. This family-friendly beach is known as a watersport hub and for its fishing – cast a line either from the beach or from one of the piers. The town also features an entertainment district called the Wharf, where you can spend the evening after a day on the beach.

  • 3. Dauphin Island

    This hidden gem is often bypassed by visitors. However, if you’re looking for a quiet, relaxed, and low-key destination, Dauphin Island could be your top pick. It has a pet-friendly beach, and is a birdwatcher’s paradise: it’s part of the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail and features a bird sanctuary. And the city of Mobile is within an hour’s reach, in case you need a taste of urban life.

  • 4. Fort Morgan

    The Fort Morgan peninsula, a unique destination, features a historic fort surrounded by water and beaches on three sides. The fort can be accessed for a small entrance fee. The quiet and serene beach is a good place to get away from the crowds, and since much of the area belongs to the Bon Secour Nature and Wildlife Refuge, it’s also a great spot to enjoy nature and watch birds and other animals.

  • 5. Gulf State Park

    At Gulf State Park, you’ll find beautiful, undeveloped beaches and plenty of opportunities to get active and explore the natural surroundings. Head out on the various hiking and biking trails, check out the nature center, outdoor classroom, and fishing lake, or go ziplining, paddleboarding, or kayaking.
