Explore Alabama's Gulf Coast

Alabama residents don’t have to travel far to find sugary white beaches, gentle surf, and some of the prettiest sunsets in the world. Alabama’s coastline is home to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and is one of the state’s greatest economic and environmental assets. The coastal towns of Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, and Dauphin Island are beloved and popular vacation destinations for Alabamians and out-of-state tourists. The tourism industry in south Baldwin County provides more than 50,000 jobs and generates more than $2 billion in annual revenue. The Alabama shoreline stretches along the Gulf of Mexico for 600 miles, with the shoreline of Mobile Bay accounting for about 100 of those miles
