There is a little strip of beach in Gulf Shores that is the bomb! It is called West Beach Alabama. Tourists and locals flock to this area year-round because it offers so much. There are ice cream & sandwich shops, fancy seafood restaurants, souvenirs, surf shops, and plenty of condos.
Stay and Play!
Park your car for the week if you would like. Most condos are within walking distance of the beach and all of the activities that you will want to enjoy. Bring your beach chairs, floats, and cooler to enjoy our white sandy beaches and clear Gulf of Mexico waters.
Are you a beach or bayside person?
No worries, West Beach offers both! The peninsula of land has the Gulf on one side and Little Lagoon on the other. Your vacation options include boating options, surf, or just beach chair relaxing.
Photographers love West Beach Alabama.
As you drive along the strip, you can feel the beach vibes. It doesn’t take long to fall in love with this area. Many of the beach houses, in particular, offer private beaches that really do photograph well. Our photographers have taken many family photos along the coast of West Beach Alabama.
Large family reunions are a big deal for lots of our visitors.
Some of the larger beach houses at the end of West Beach Blvd have room for large family reunions or small weddings. This is a great idea for families that like to “stay put” on vacation. Once you are here, make a drink, apply some sunscreen, and hit the beach!
We will be happy to meet you at your private beach for a family photo session.
For larger parties, especially, it is easier to meet at your beach for family beach portraits. As mentioned earlier, West Beach is a good area for photos. Just walk out the back door just before sunset, and meet your photographer on the beach! It is really that easy.
