This year-round value destination is located on the northern Gulf of Mexico between Pensacola, Florida (which is 30 minutes to the east) and Mobile, Alabama (which is 90 minutes to the northwest). Our Pleasure Island is truly an island separated on the north side by the Intracoastal Waterway and on the west side by Mobile Bay. Dauphin Island is a short ferry ride away. Also, our slice of Alabama tourism attracts many visitors from the Louisiana and Mississippi Gulf Coast, such Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Lafayette, LA, and Biloxi, MS. In addition to these guests, our Orange Beach and Gulf Shores vacation rentals are only a few hours from Panama City Beach Florida and other locations along the Emerald Coast.
