Alabama Beaches


Alabama has 53 miles of coastline on the glorious Gulf of Mexico creating some wonderful beaches. The weather of the coast is temperate and humid with summer highs averaging in the 80’s winter highs in the 60’s. 

Gulf Shores Public Beach is at the end of Highway 59 in Gulf Shores. Provided for the public’s comfort are a bathhouse with restrooms and showers, 2 beach pavilions, 12 picnic pavilions, 400 paved parking spaces and a boardwalk with benches and lifeguards. Many familiar hotels are nearby including Best Western, Holiday Inn or Days Inn. If you prefer a condo, check out Island Winds East & West that are directly on the beach.


West End Beach is located on Dauphin Island south of Mobile. Comfort is the byword for this lovely beach where you have air conditioned restrooms and comfort stations, lifeguards, security guards, playground equipment and a misting station! There is a fee but plenty of parking. Vendors can rent you beach equipment or sell you food and beverages. Harbor Lights Inn has earned rave reviews from customers for the rooms, service and location. Another place that receives rave reviews is Best Lil Oarhouse Restaurant.
