Outdoor Fun in Orange Beach

Orange Beach offers many opportunities for outdoor fun beyond your usual beach day. While you will certainly find many attractions and activities centered around our white sand and emerald green waters, the area also offers many ways to explore nature, learn a bit of history and, of course, relax.

While you are with us, fly high above the beach, quench your need for speed or experience our area sea life with traditional water sports and dolphin cruises. Check out our Southern Perks programs for awesome deals and discounts on these activities, as well. Or, go beyond the beach with a trek through the Backcountry Trail or Gulf State Park. You can even learn a little about Alabama’s history, as well as our country’s, with a quick trip to Mobile, Alabama to see the Mobile Bay Civil War Trail or tour the USS Alabama Battleship. You will also find plenty of outdoor events to enjoy while in town, as well. For details, be sure to read our Gulf Coast blog before heading to the beach. See a list of all our favorite outdoor activities below.
