The Alabama Gulf Coast is warmed by sunshine, history, culture and unspoiled natural beauty. You’ll find 32 miles of sugar-white sand beaches made almost entirely of fine, quartz grains washed down from the Appalachian Mountains thousands of years ago. Once you visit the Gulf Coast area of Baldwin County, you quickly realize these are some of the finest beaches in the world, and one of America’s hidden gem locations.
Orange Beach has spectacular accommodations and rentals, award-winning restaurants, and amazing events. It features one-of-a-kind attractions like championship golf, nature trails, water sports, and amusement parks (like the well known Waterville USA).
Whether you’re in the mood for fun and adventure or lazy days on the beach, you can do it all at Orange Beach. Stroll along the sugar-white sand and spot frolicking dolphins. If you’re craving an adventure, cast your line into one of the country’s largest artificial fishing reefs during a deep-sea fishing trip. Discover history and travel back in time when cannons protected the waterways, and explore the nearly 200-year-old Fort Morgan.
