Sugar-white sand, turquoise waters and Southern hospitality give guests along Alabama's 32-mile beach destination a warm welcome. Gulf Shores allows visitors to relax, unwind and embrace the area's charming coastal culture. Seafood, arts, outdoor adventure and watersports combine for unforgettable experiences.
