Into the wild in Orange Beach
There's something a little bit different about Orange Beach and it has a lot to do with the amazing amount of natural wonders to explore. If you're a keen walker and hiker then the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Nature Trail and the Alabama Coast Birding Trail are sure to be your first ports of call—well, maybe after a quick visit to the stunning marina. But the beautiful Gulf State Park is worth more than one visit. Stretching 2 miles along the beachfront and encompassing 25 miles of amazing parklands, the public recreation area is well known for its sun-kissed sand, invigorating walks, lush green vegetation, and long, wide pier—which continues to be a local favorite for fishing. Book an Orange Beach condo rental in Cotton Bayou for easy access to the Cotton Bayou Trail, a beautiful hiking path surrounded by forest that leads to plenty of the park's other nooks and walkways.
