Water PARK less than 5 min away. LULU Buffett 4 min away. Golf courses and Gulf Shores state parks within 2-3 miles . Visitors to Gulf Shores, at the heart of the Alabama Gulf Coast, will be met with sugary-white sand beaches, Southern-style fresh seafood, championship golf courses and nearly any water sport you can imagine, thanks to the many nearby back bays and rivers. Preserves and state parks protect much of the region make Gulf Shores an ideal base for a natural coastal escape. Discover a whole new world under the surface of the Gulf of Mexico with Gulf Shores and Orange Beach diving vacation.

Alabama’s first purpose-sunk ship wreck - The LuLu, a sunken freighter - is 17 nautical miles south of Perdido Pass and Orange Beach (+29° 59' 50" / -87° 33' 00") and joins the area off the Alabama coast that is the site of the largest artificial reef program in the United States. This newest reef wreck is at a perfect depth for beginner diver certification, with 50-foot depth clearance at the top of the wreck. It’s also attractive for the experienced recreational diver at the bottom level depth of 115 feet. Before The LuLu, divers had to travel farther east and farther out to sea, but this great new dive spot is easier to reach and safer to dive.

When you aren't diving, enjoy the miles and miles of white-sand beaches where you can relax or take in a game of sand volleyball. Water lovers will also enjoy an array of activities like paddle boarding, kayaking or pier fishing on the Gulf State Park pier.

Vacations on the Gulf Coast usher in a whole different state of wonder and relaxation. Find Orange Beach and Gulf Shores diving locations.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We hope you find our condo special and a place you will want to return to. We do, and we look forward to our stays in our second home. We only live a few hours south in central Alabama. We've made a lot of upgrades to the unit for our comfort and yours that we are sure you will appreciate, brand new fresh carpet in both rooms in Sept, including three flat-panel LCD TV's with DVD players, ceramic tile in the living/dining areas, new bedding king & queen beds, many new dishes, blender, toaster oven, microwave and new balcony furniture.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
One of the newest condos in Central Gulf shores and within walking distance to everything. No other beach's have what we have. Great views and amenities in well designed building. Lots of attractions nearby. My family has a wonderful time there each time we go. Whether you're reeling in the catch of the day or sightseeing on a dolphin cruise, there's plenty to do and see on an Orange Beach fishing charter or cruise. Experience Gulf Shores and Orange Beach in a whole new way when you fish the back bays of the Alabama Gulf Coast or set sail on the open water. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach fishing charters depart daily. Choose from private charters to party boat charters for the experience that's right for you and your group. Fish the largest artificial fishing reef program in the country when you sink your line in the Gulf waters off of Orange Beach for some Alabama deep sea fishing fun. Dolphin sightseeing tours are equally entertaining and educational and are a fun way to spend the day. Orange Beach sailboat charters are another great way to while away the time on your beach vacation

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Terrific beach front views, beautiful white sand beach in Central Gulf Shores. Indoor-outdoor pool, free games in the game room, excercise room, sauna, etc. Beach chair rentals exclusive for Crystal Shore guests. Just steps away from the condo . Nominated as one of the Ultimate Fishing Towns in America, lives up to its name as a great fishing mecca. In Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, you’ll find boats for charter, as well as boats for sale. Or bring your own. Some Gulf Shores and Orange Beach condominiums are even boat friendly and offer launches and boat slips. Enjoy cruising the calmer waters of our back bays or venture out into the Gulf of Mexico where the big fish live.
