The condo is 2 miles from Historic Fort Morgan! Settle into a top floor, newly renovated condo and experience the peace, beauty and diversity of activities offered at this unique and unspoiled location. The Dunes are the LAST condominium on the peninsula that seperates the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay and contain only 70 units.

Seclusion with amenities. Something for all the family or just a couple wanting some quiet time. You can start with a solitary walk down the wide white sand beach past 2 miles of property designated as a national wildlife refuge. Your stroll towards Ft. Morgan will place the clear Gulf to the south and sand dunes to the north that tower with sea oats and provide the nesting area for a number of sea turtles. Do not be surprised to be accompanied by dolphins, pelicans, and maybe even practice runs by the Blue Angels as you search for a variety of shells, sand dollars, interesting drift wood or an occasional starfish.

Fishing in the surf at the Dunes has yielded quite an array of exciting catches including: pompano, redfish, speckled trout, bluefish, sheepshead, black drum, flounder and other species. The fun part is you never know what you might be reeling in!

Large blue crabs often scuttle across the Gulf's floor at shallow depths in great numbers and can be easliy caught in the clear water with just a dip net.

Not into fishing? Set up your beach gear for your own compound and just enjoy the water, your kids and the lack of crowds in this very special place.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We have been married since 2010. We currently reside in Memphis, TN, in a planned community, overlooking the Mississippi river. My husband has been very familiar with the Fort Morgan area for decades.

Why the Owner Chose The Dunes:
There may not be a less congested stretch of beach along the Gulf coast

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
My husband decided while in college that he wanted to see this sunset as often as possible. I saw my first falling star and water spout here! When you drive down Ft. Morgan road (Hwy 180) time stops and you just relax.
