Instagram and Facebook Spots in Alabama

Let’s face it, we all love to show-off our travels on social media.  If you are traveling to our beaches this year, here are some must-see Instagram and Facebook Spots in Alabama.  Whether you are a photographer, an artist or just here with the family, you can get great photos while you are here!

Another gorgeous sunset at the beach in Alabama

The Jetties at Alabama Point East is a great photo op.

The rocks have a purpose, they were placed to hold the sand in place at the pass.  They also make a great place to relax, watch the sunset and take a picture!  On any given evening, as long as it is not raining, you can find professional and amateur photographers taking photos at Alabama Point East.  I think it is probably one of our most popular Instagram and Facebook Spots in Alabama.

Just a few miles down the road you will find the peaceful town of Perdido Key.

Johnsons Beach in Perdido key is very picturesque.  On weekends there is a charge to enter the park, but it is well worth the twenty dollar entry fee.  There are miles of sandy white beaches, clear water, and sea oats.  Every few hundred yards there are wooden walkways that also make wonderful photo backgrounds.  You won’t even have to get your feet sandy, just sit on the boardwalk!

The walkways of the Perdido Key always photograph well.

The Beach Pavilion in Gulf Shores is one of my favorite Instagram and Facebook spots in Alabama.

This location is another one of the Gulf State Parks so there is a small parking fee.  Here you are away from the hustle and bustle of the condos, and the beach is pristine.  There are plenty of sand dunes and water views for your photo background.  The Pavilion is located very close to the fishing pier in Gulf Shores, which is another great photo location.

No matter where you stop along our beautiful beaches, you are going to find wonderful photo opportunities.

The water, sand and ever-changing skies make an awesome backdrop for your photo every time.  So bring the camera, or use your iPhone, or call a local photographer, just make sure you get the photo!
