safe to swim  (1 Answer)

We plan to rent a vacation house on the beach this coming July 2014. Is it safe to swim at the tip of the west end of the island? We are looking at a house on Velasco Court. Are the rip tides bad that close to the ocean? Would we be better renting in the center of the island?

Need travel tips for Dauphin Island area.

I want to see both Fort Gaines and Fort Morgan, and get the best view I can of the Sand Island and Middle Bay Lighthouses. What would be the best way to go about all of this, and can it be done in a day? Also need to know a good not-so-pricey hotel nearby, but outside of the immediate area, heading West towards LA. Any ideas? Thanks for any responses!

What Fort is cooler- Morgan or Gaines?

Hello! :)

We are going this weekend and we have 3 kids (1,3 and 6). The older two boys are BIG in castles right now and we just studied the civil war. So they will love these Forts. Which one is better for kids, more "wow"? More canons? Any tunnels? You can just tell me which you like for whatever reason. :)\
We only have one morning and do not think we can do both, we are driving to Johnson's Beach, so we cross the bay anyways.

Thank you anyone for your feedback.

"Dress-code" on the Island's beaches?  (1 Answer)

I will be vacationing at a beach house there in May. My wife occasionally likes to wear a thong bikini when appropriate and acceptable. Just wondering what Dauphin Island's standards are officially and/or un-officially? Thanks.

Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · August 27, 2008
Tell me why?

I'm a mid-west person(St.Louis Mo.)who had planned on visiting Satellite Beach Florida again where my sister-i- law owns a condo right on the beach.Have been there several times which I guess makes it an easy destination since I know where everything(stores,restaurants etc).
This time a larger group of people that usual will be going which means driving instead of flying.Since it's approximately an 18hr. drive to Florida I stared looking for somewhere closer that we could go to relax and enjoy the beach with the kids.
Not being familiar with the gulf coast area which is a seven hour shorter drive to the beach.I checked out the more popular areas Gulfport etc.When I ran accross Dauphin Island Alabama.Would someone familiar with the area please tell me I'm not dreaming!Affordable housing on a beautiful white sand beach!!Is it too good to be true or is a best kept secret?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.Thank You
