Dauphin Island, a barrier island located off the coast of Mobile, Alabama, makes up nearly a half of the states diminutive coastline. However, size isn’t everything and the island is home to Dauphin Beach, one of the Gulf coast’s finest. 

This affluent island has a rich history that dates back to 1699 when it was first inhabited by a French settler. Today, the town is a fantastic getaway for beach lovers and its many attractions make it a great vacation destination.

One of the best things about Dauphin Beach is its expansive white sand, perfect for sunbathing and beachcombing. The beach area has a variety of amenities, including a large picnic area, pavilions, restaurants, and multiple public access points. Clean changing rooms and restrooms are within steps of the beach, as well as public showers for washing off the sand.

Visitors can go swimming, kayaking, fishing, or take a scenic nature walk along the island shoreline. XXXXXThe crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico beckon visitors to dive in and explore the vast array of sea life that inhabits the area. With an average temperature of 85 degrees Fahrenheit during summer months, it is the perfect place to spend a hot summer day cooling off in the usually calm sea.XXXXX

Also, fishing enthusiasts will find plenty of excitement at Dauphin Beach. Cast your line into the crystal-clear waters off of the shore and you may be rewarded with a bite. Most visitors like to take the ferry over to nearby Fort Morgan to cast off of the historic fishing pier.
