Gulf Shores Beach

Gulf Shores Beach is located immediately south of the downtown area of the town of the same name. Lining the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, this particular stretch of brilliant white sand runs for approximately four miles, although include neighbouring beaches and this length can be more than doubled.

Largely unaffected by the 2010 oil spill, as well as beachgoers, Gulf Shores attracts amateur game fishermen and women keen to do battle with marlin and sailfish, and those who enjoy water-based adrenaline sports. Other activities that draw people to the beach are dolphin watching tours and the desire to sample the gulf’s unique seafood cuisine.

Partially backed by Little Lagoon, there’s street side vehicle parking on West Beach Boulevard, which leads onto the beach via attractive low dunes. Public amenities include restrooms and showers.
