Gulf Shores Main Public Beach (Gulf Place)

Parking at East Gulf Place, located at the intersection of East 2nd Street and East Beach Boulevard, will be available only to City of Gulf Shores residents. Proof of residency will be required. The main Gulf Place parking area near the Pink Pony Pub and the Hangout will remain closed until further notice to make necessary repairs to the boardwalk.

If you're looking for volleyball-playing, beach-bar-hanging good times, this spot - where Highway 59 dead-ends into the Gulf - is for you. For a small fee, you get all-day, up-close parking, making it easy to unload your gear. Paid parking lasts from March 1 - November 30. The cost is $5 for up to four hours or $10 for all day. Beach attendants, open-air pavilions and a picnic area are available. There are also restrooms and showers on site. This is a popular spot, so you may want to arrive early to get a prime parking spot.
