The Best Beach In Gulf Shores

alabama's best beach

The best beach in Gulf Shores depends on what you like to do when you relax on the beach. Luckily, Gulf Shores is just the kind of beach town where you'll find a beach that's perfect for your style.  Whether you're here for family fun, a girls getaway, a couples retreats, a mancation or you're here alone for "me time", you won't be disappointed.  Here are the beaches we recommend most to our guests.

Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge

Celebrate your love of Eco Tourism among these lands and waters set aside for the conservation of fish, wildlife and plants.  Here, you'll have over 7.000 acres to roam and explore from beach dunes to rolling pine-oak woodlands. These native plants and animals serve as a living laboratory for students and scientists and they're sure to provide you with lots of recreation, too.

West Beach

How does six miles of sugar white sand sound?  This big, beautiful beach is what everyone loves about Alabama's Gulf Coast. Dive right in here for Gulf Shores' best shopping and dining and head west for those times when you'd like a quieter, less populous beach. Our collection of vacation rentals is as diverse are your interests.

Fort Morgan

Historic Fort Morgan is a popular destination that's fast becoming a favorite of beach vacationers.  Guests love it here since there are fewer crowds and lots of natural beauty. There's also world class golf and fishing and lots of beach activities to go with it! It's also pet friendly, so be sure to pack your wags.


Family friendly and community based, this is another great area for peace and quiet and beauty. It's beautifully landscaped and lovingly cared for and laid back. We have lots of pet friendly vacation rentals and the beach is, too.

Orange Beach

Be a part of the in-crowd here. Decidedly more upscale and cosmopolitan, you'll enjoy award winning restaurants and an endless choice of entertainment and recreation. Our large vacation rental homes also make it a favorite destination for families, groups, reunions and celebrations. They're all beachfront and most have their own private pools or access to a community pool.

In addition to the beaches where most of our vacation rentals are located, there are other public access beaches and parks for you to explore and experience, too.  Which is the best beach in Gulf Shores?  That question is best settled after you've experienced each of them and after you've sampled the different locations and amenites of our collection.  Ready to relax on the beach?
