Are you a couple who relishes the idea of sleeping in? This is your chance. Make the world wait on you today while you enjoy coffee in bed with views of white-sand beaches. After the first cup wakes you up, step out on the balcony to watch the day begin. Keep breakfast simple with store-bought
pastries - or before checking in the first day, pick something up from City Donut
Try something different today! Drive to the Gulf State Park
for pier fishing. Our second-summer weather makes for a pleasant day on the pier. No equipment? No problem - you can rent a rod and reel onsite. There’s also a bait and tackle shop at the pier where you can purchase a saltwater fishing license. Even if you’re not an avid angler, the pier is a great place to while away the day. Just ask the blue herons that hang around!
Don’t miss an opportunity for a waterfront lunch. Check out Bayes Southern Bar & Grill
for fresh-from-the-Gulf seafood and Southern cuisine. Enjoy the sights and sounds of The Wharf Marina as boats come and go on the Intracoastal Waterway.
While a sunset cruise is a spectacular way to end a day, there are other ways to cruise
, too. Set sail on a Snorkel & Sail Tour aboard Wild Hearts
, a 52-foot, open-ocean catamaran. The captain and his crew will take you to protected inlets and coves to discover a whole different state of Alabama’s white-sand beaches.
Have a little (or a lotta) fun for dinner at The Gulf. Located near the Alabama Point bridge, The Gulf
is made of shipping containers and serves up hamburgers, oysters and tacos to name just a few items. While their menu is limited, the fun is not. Ask the bartender for a blackberry mojito and relax on the comfy sofas on the sand to watch the sunset. When the sun goes down, the lights go on and so does the fire pit.
