Dauphin Island is a barrier island located on the Gulf of Mexico in Alabama. The island can be reached by crossing a 3 mile long high rise bridge. 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. Lined with A/C restrooms, showers, food and drink vendors, and certified lifeguards on duty, your beach experience is definitely going to be a comfortable one. 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.
