Where to Enjoy a Sunset Dinner with Your Sweetheart

If you’re planning a getaway with your sweetheart, whether for a special occasion or “just because,” there are plenty of spots in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach for alfresco dining with sunset backdrops.

Couple watches Sunset on Alabama's Beaches

With the help of specialty shops and bakeries that dot Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, pack a picnic basket and find a spot on Alabama’s white-sand beaches. Watch the sun fade into the Gulf and enjoy a picture-perfect moment together. Orange Beach Waterfront Park is also a picturesque spot to enjoy a picnic basket of local delicacies. Order out at your favorite restaurant and take advantage of the swings built for two on the bay or one of several picnic tables.

If restaurant dining is calling your name, waterfront restaurants offer stunning sunset views. Watch the Orange Beach charter fishing boats cruise back to their marinas on the patio of Cobalt Restaurant in Orange Beach, just under the Perdido Pass bridge. Find your spot at the Flora-Bama Yacht Club, across from the legendary Flora-Bama Lounge and Package, for sunset views of Ole River. Feast on mouthwatering ribeyes and calamari at this casual, open-air restaurant with your sweetheart.

Seafood Dining at Sunset on Alabama's Beaches

Take a short drive from Gulf Shores down to Coast Restaurant at The Beach Club on the Fort Morgan Peninsula for a front-row seat to spectacular sunsets on the restaurant’s large veranda. Head back to Gulf Shores for live music at LuLu’s, where boats and barges are frequent sights on the Intracoastal Waterway while you dine on the deck.
