The weather here at the beach during December is ideal for exploring the natural wonders of the Alabama Gulf Coast. Pleasant temperatures and sunny skies allow for activities like fishing, golfing, kayaking, and biking. You can take a stroll on the sugar-white sand beaches without breaking a sweat!
Winter rates on beach vacation rentals make a weekend getaway the perfect pre-Christmas gift. It's also a great time to test drive that condo or beach house you've been eyeing for your summer vacation, without the peak season price tag.
The holidays on Alabama beaches include non-stop fun all winter long. While you're here, we have the perfect festivities to make your holidays merry and bright. From ice skating at The Wharf to tree lightings and plenty of Santa sightings, there are many great activities and events for the young and young at heart. Be sure to check out our guide to a Coastal Christmas to see all the holiday happenings this season!
If you’re searching for a non-traditional and fun-filled Christmas vacation, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are the perfect destinations for you! We celebrate the holidays a little differently on the coast, so leave your winter coats and boots at home and pack your flip flops and sunglasses for a comfortable Christmas on the beach. Whether you want to do some holiday shopping or enjoy downtime before Santa stops on Dec. 25, join us on the Alabama Gulf Coast for a white (sand) Christmas, beach style.
