Five Reasons for a Babymoon on Alabama's Beaches

Couple dining at The Wharf in Orange Beach, AL

Relax on miles of white-sand beach

 The beach is one of the few places where doing nothing is perfectly acceptable, and that’s a great way to prepare for the busy days ahead. Our destination offers more than 30 miles of pristine shoreline where you can rest, relax, and rejuvenate while soaking up some beneficial Vitamin D. Read a book, take a nap, or lay still and be lulled by the rhythmic rolling waves - the time is yours to do with as you please. 

Get a Prenatal Massage

There’s never a wrong time for a relaxing massage, but while you’re pregnant is a better time than most. Book a relaxing massage for mommies-to-be designed to relieve aching muscles and fatigue while you relax in quiet bliss - a state much harder to achieve once your new bundle arrives. 

Try a new restaurant

This may be one of the last times you don’t need a babysitter to dine out. Take advantage by venturing to one of your favorite Gulf Shores or Orange Beach restaurant for a night of fabulous fine dining. You can soothe any cravings you’re having and enjoy a lingering meal without a curfew!

Enjoy some solo shopping

Shopping may become more challenging with a little one in tow. Enjoy strolling the aisles stress-free as you search for baby gear, maternity clothes, household items, or anything else on your to-buy list. The Tanger Outlet offers a large selection of top brands, or head to The Wharf to browse charming boutiques for one-of-a-kind coastal finds.

Take a nature walk 

If being in nature helps you reach relaxation, a leisurely stroll down a scenic nature trail is a great way to clear your mind and burn off baby’s extra breakfast donut. The Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail offers more than 28 miles of paved exploration perfect for wildlife watching, nature photography, and more.
