About Gulf Shores

A family-friendly beach destination nestled along Alabama’s Gulf Coast, Gulf Shores boasts 51 kilometres of sandy beaches perfect for surfing and fishing. Visitors can enjoy sky coaster rides, dolphin cruises and hiking in wilderness beach parks.

Things to do

You can soak up the sun in secluded coves or indulge in parasailing, jet skiing, surfing and stand-up paddleboarding. Feel like reeling in your dinner?

There are plenty of ways to get out on the water, from sailboat glides to glass-bottom boat cruises and dolphin-watching schooners. You can also explore underwater with diving expeditions to famous shipwrecks, such as the Whiskey Wreck and the USS Oriskany.

PGA golf courses dot the landscape of Gulf Shores, with courses such as Cotton Creek and the award-winning Diva Dunes open to the public. Take a leisurely hike on the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail to view indigenous species in native swamps and forests. Delve into the area’s naval history with a visit to the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park.

Family entertainment starts with a trip to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, known for its impressive reptile house and engaging animal shows. Older kids will love the thrills of simulated skydiving on the Skycoaster, a feature of The Track Gulf Shores.
