Boating In Orange Beach, Alabama

A Little Piece of Paradise

32 miles of sugar white sands line the waters of the Gulf of Mexico in Orange Beach, Alabama. Many of those who have discovered this little piece of paradise first come to enjoy those beaches. They soon discover, though, that there’s more to this town than meets the eye. In addition to its miles of coastline, there are an abundance of back bays, bayous and rivers connecting Orange Beach to the world.

It’s well known as a deep-sea fishing hot spot, but there are also canoe and kayak rentals for exploring the city’s in-water trails, party boats to charter for offshore dinners and sunset cruises, and, of course, swimming in the gulf and lounging on the wide, powdery beaches.

Visitors find plenty of other activities to enjoy. There are network of paths that run through more than 11 miles of the stunning woodlands in Gulf State Park. Wander through oak hammocks, over swamps and marshes and along sandy dunes. The area offers many annual festivals including the Seafood Festival and Hangout Music Festivals bringing in music lovers from all over the country.

Don’t forget about food! The restaurants are almost as plentiful as the fish they serve.
