About this beach

Warnings and hazards

Parking is limited and rules are enforced - cars parked incorrectly will be towed!

Waves are strong - look after your kids!

No alcohol allowed!

Alabama Point has many names - locals refer to it as Point East, Florida Point or Perdido Pass. A great beach for families and seniors, this 6000 feet-wide white-sand beauty is a real hidden gem. Parking is free but limited so respect the rules because the cops are merciless! After you park, there are three different fenced wooden walkways that will take you to the beach. You'll have to do some walking, so keep that in mind in case you are bringing gear for fishing or sports. 

Public restrooms, showers and picnic tables are available. You can rent a sunbed with an umbrella. 

The beach is extremely crowded during summer. Flocks of photographers, surfers, people getting married, sports enthusiast, etc. This is definitely one of the best beaches around that you can visit.

What we loved

  • Boat-watching
  • The view of the bridge and the gulf
  • Surfing 🏄‍♂️
