Dauphin Island is 14 miles long, and 1.75 miles wide at its widest point with beaches that are open 7 days a week. The island is known for bird watching, history, and their white, sandy beaches.
This island is a popular beach town. There are many activities at the beach including water slides, fishing, boogie boarding, and inflatable rentals.

Pets, glass and grills are not allowed at the beaches and parking is $2 plus $3 per person over 12 years of age. Once you’ve had enough of the beach, be sure to check out Fort Gaines, a restored fort that dates back to the colonial era. This Civil War site attracts thousands of sightseers each year.
