2. Lagoon Pass Beach
Located 2.9 miles west of Gulf Place in Gulf Shores, Lagoon Pass Beach provides a parking area, showers, a restroom facility and a new 300-foot fishing pier. Swimmers may prefer the calm, flat waters of this beach on the lagoon side of the highway. Enjoy wading or floating in these shallow waters, but please remember that there is no lifeguard on duty, and the current can move swiftly as the tides shift in and out. Always heed the posted beach flags wherever you visit. Lagoon Pass Park is also an optimal place to watch the sunset. In summer, the sun goes down over Little Lagoon, and during winter, it sinks over the surf!
