Before heading out to the beach, check for current beach conditions to ensure you have a safe and fun experience. Beach flags are posted at all public beach areas and lifeguard towers in Gulf Shores. Please remember that the absence of beach flags does not constitute safe swimming conditions.
Please note: Within the corporate limits of Gulf shores, it is ILLEGAL to enter the Gulf of Mexico when double red flags are flying. Those who enter the Gulf waters when double red flags are displayed will be subject to a fine and possible arrest
