Helicopter capital of Alabama

Unless you enjoy the sounds of helicopters (day and night), airplanes doing acrobatics and motorcycle drag racing on the Main Street to the ferry, this is not a quaint or peaceful island.

Do Not Go
Mar 2021 • Family
Don't try going to the west end public beach because the city will stop you. I was told by a very very rude lady in a yellow vw beetle that I wanst staying down that far so I had to turn around or she would call the police to give me a ticket. She said they were cleaning up that area and it would be 3-6 months before I could come back to visit that part. Dauphin Island is a nice island for a 2-3 day trip but not any longer. I do not reccomend a trip for the island, but only if you are in the area and have some time to waste.

Worst place ever
Mar 2021 • Couples
We have visited the Al gulf coast numbers of times but usually stay on fort Morgan. I found DI to be the most inhospitable place to stay. There are no convenient stores within 30 miles. The house we rented needed a lot of work but was liveable. The people weren’t friendly and restaurants that advertised pet friendly were not. Will not visit here again

A bit of walk from parking to water
Dec 2020
Average beach. Sand was average. Parking was a bit far from the actual beach/water but there is a long boardwalk to the water. Good maintenance on boardwalk and parking area.

Beautiful White Soft Sand
Dec 2020
Spent a whole afternoon walking around and taking pictures, if you walk close to the water you'll find shells, but if you walk closer to the back of the beach (which is really wide), you'll see all the birds in the marsh area. The sand is super white and soft. Plenty of space to spread out and keep to yourselves. A little bit of a walk to get back to the beach from the parking lot.

A great beach walk
Aug 2020 • Solo
I had a great time at this beach park. I spent three hours exploring the coastline. If you follow the beach away from the condo and homes it was so amazing! So many birds and completely isolated way out there at the point. The road to west end beach was flooded the day I went. The public beach was my back up plan and perhaps it was even better? I’ll go back for west end...maybe when it’s a bit cooler.

West end is the best beach
Jul 2020 • Family
We went to two of the public beaches - the one in the middle of the island and the west end beach. We liked the west end best. The middle beach was fine but the walk to the car was extremely long - good luck if you have to go back to your car or use the restroom. The west end beach offers the gulf (more surf)and the bay (calmer waters). They do charge to get in ($3 parking and $3 per person). If you go after 6 in the evening they won't charge you. Great place to watch the sunset and to take family pictures.

Long hike
Jun 2020 • Couples
Nicest beach on the island. This has the widest beach, and the most remote beach on the island. From the bathrooms to the beach it is approx a 1500 feet hike. You can either take the boardwalk that has many stairs at the end or walk along the dunes to get to the beach. There is a outdoor shower on the boardwalk, about half way back. There are site-built restrooms in the parking lot that are OK, and are ADA also. Beautiful area and dunes make this a great beach.
