Our Alabama Gulf Coast Beaches

It is a pleasure to live and play along the Alabama Gulf Coast! As Gulf Coast residents, we are fortunate to have our famed white sand beaches, but we can also enjoy the exceptional Gulf State Park and wildlife preserves right at our doorstep! These natural lands provide bountiful recreational opportunities for outdoor fun along our bays, lagoons, rivers, and bayous. They also provide vital habitat and breeding grounds for a rich and varied population of fish, sea creatures, and birds, including bald eagles, osprey, owls, and brown pelicans, and land animals, such as tortoises, lizards, frogs, alligators, bobcats, deer, foxes, and more!
