Gulf State Park boasts over 3.5 miles of beautiful white sand beaches available in both our main park area in Gulf Shores at the Beach Pavilion and from our access points in Orange Beach, Alabama.  Our family-friendly beaches are a perfect place to enjoy some much needed time of fun and relaxation.  Whether you are into surf fishing or just laying out and reading a book, you will find our beaches to be a fantastic place to do this and more. 


Gulf State Park is home to many wild animals. Please stay aware and see Wildlife Safety for more info.





The Alabama Gulf Coast offers nesting beaches for sea turtles during the summer months. A volunteer program, Share the Beach, devotes time and passion in Gulf State Park and the surrounding beaches in order to protect the sea turtles. Visit the organization's website to learn more about this conservation program and what you can do to help!
